Royal Liverpool

History

Royal Liverpool is England’s second oldest seaside club. In 1885 it became the inaugural host of the Amateur Championship and went on to host the first international match between Scotland and England in 1902 and the first Home International (Walker Cup) between Great Britain & Ireland and the United States in 1921.

Royal Liverpool’s contribution to the amateur game sets it apart from all other clubs in England. Although at the end of the nineteenth century it was the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews that adopted the role of the governing body in golf, it was at Royal Liverpool that the rules of amateur golf were laid down.

Royal Liverpool

Royal Liverpool, or Hoylake as many people know it, has hosted the greatest events in golf. The Open has been staged here 12 times and returns in 2023. Hoylake has also staged the Amateur Championship 18 times, the Ladies Amateur three times as well as the Women’s British Open, Walker Cup and Curtis Cup.

The Open here has produced some incredible champions, including Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Hoylake is a fantastic test of golf. When Tiger won here in 2006, he hit his driver just once all weekend because the course was parched and playing very fast. Respect this course and you will be rewarded.
