Wallasey Golf Club: In many ways Wallasey is a defining links course, with much of the layout weaving its way through an impressive collection of large sand dunes, while other holes are tucked in behind the dunes on flatter terrain. A quick prayer might be appropriate as you tee-off beside St Nicholas Church, both as thanks for the chance to play this excellent links course and to help you cope with the times you'll inevitably get into the deep rough, which lines many of the holes.

The greens are fabulous to putt on, the bunkering is top quality and the visual scenery encompasses sea views and a lot more besides; the elevated 4th tee provides a captivating 360-degree panorama. This wonderful and quintessential links golf course offers a second opportunity to admire the tower and turret of St Nicholas Church (also known as the Harrison Memorial Church, as well as the Golfers Church) as you make your way down the undulating closing hole.

Did you know?

It was here at Wallasey Golf Club, apparently at the second hole, that Dr. Frank Stableford devised his revolutionary scoring system, much used throughout the world today (see Golf Dictionary). The stableford system was first used in competition at Wallasey on May 16, 1932, perhaps securing Dr. Stableford the club captaincy in 1933. Dr. Stableford was also a member at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake). Wallasey is used for final qualifying for Open Championships held at Royal Liverpool.
