The sheer quality of the course has led to West Lancashire being used as a Final Qualifying venue for The Open and many prestigious amateur tournaments. Former Masters champions Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam and Sandy Lyle all qualified here for the 105th Open Championship at nearby Royal Birkdale in 1976.
West Lancashire is a fantastic test of golf with many superb holes. Like all links golf courses, driving the ball straight and true is vital to post a good score, especially when the wind is blowing off the Mersey. This course will give you a real challenge but is one you will relish taking on. This traditional links is a real joy to play.
