Braid’s improvements led to Wallasey being selected as a Final Qualifying course for the 1930 Open. The great Bobby Jones came through qualifiers here and went on to win the 65th Open Championship at nearby Royal Liverpool in Hoylake. Jones claimed his third Claret Jug that year, as part of a unique single-season Grand Slam.
In 1932, the world’s first Stableford competition was played at Wallasey. The format was invented by one of their members, Dr Frank Stableford. Wallasey is a fantastic links golf course that is challenging but great fun. You will have a chance to score plenty of Stableford points if you play well at this wonderful golf course.
