Wallasey

History

Located on the picturesque Wirral peninsula, Wallasey was founded in 1891 by members from nearby Royal Liverpool. Golf historians are divided as to whether this was because their links was becoming crowded or that Wallasey provided a more convenient location for Liverpool businessmen wanting to slip away to play golf.

Some of the greats of golf have shaped the Wallasey course, including Alex “Sandy” Herd (an Open Champion at Hoylake in 1902), double Open Champion Harold Hilton and five-time Open Champion and world-renowned course architect, James Braid. Needless to say, this is a high-class course with an incredible history.

Wallasey

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.
