Formby is a true championship links course unlike any other. Running through the mature dunes and pinewoods of the stunning Sefton coast, this course will challenge you at every shot. A combination of well-protected greens, heather rough and challenging tee shots means Formby is a course of magnificent contrasts.

Formby has been remodelled by the game’s great designers over the years, including James Braid, Harry Colt and Donald Steel. The traditional clubhouse offers unparalleled comfort and relaxation and the refurbished lounge and dining room provide unmissable panoramic views of the course for added “wow” factor.
