Where2Golf says: 

Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa: This good-quality, relatively recent and flattish parkland course provides an enjoyable alternative from the better known and perhaps more revered seaside links courses on the other side of the Liverpool-Southport road (e.g. Formby, Hillside, West Lancs and Royal Birkdale). The greens and fairways here are a tad softer, and orchard-sized trees rather than big sand dunes break-up the reasonably open terrain. Strangely though, it appears that dozens of links-like revetted bunkers decided to migrate across the A565 road, and install themselves onto this otherwise parkland-style layout. Great news that they did, since these excellent and often quite deep bunkers (many pot bunkers among them) provide good definition to the holes and solid defences around the greens. In addition to the bunkering, water hazards are also a significant factor (and also home to a multitude of water fowl) especially on the more interesting and varied back-nine. From the front nine you'll get occasional glimpses of the old Formby Hall.

Did you know?

Nearby RAF Woodvale is the source of the light aircraft that fly over the golf course at Formby Hall; certainly much less noticable and disturbing than an airport used by jet engined aircraft.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
