Royal Liverpool Golf Club is delighted to welcome visitors to play our challenging, historic links. Please see our online Tee Booking system for details, discounts apply on Mondays.Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake has staged major tournaments throughout its long history including 11 Open Championships. The Open made a successful return to Hoylake in 2006 when Tiger Woods achieved his third victory. The Women's British Open will be played at Hoylake for the first time in 2012, then the Open returns in 2014. The Club was formed in 1869, making it the second oldest links in England. Hoylake has a long and distinguished history of golfing firsts: It was host to the inaugural men’s amateur championship in 1885; the first ever international match between Scotland & England in 1902; the first Home International matches & the first transatlantic contest between GB&I & the USA in 1921, an event which became the Walker Cup the following year. In fact, it is Hoylake's contribution to the amateur game that has set it apart from other clubs. The historic memorabilia in the clubhouse is well reknowned. Golfers are welcome to follow in legends' footsteps to play our links.

Probably 30 minutes from Liverpool and an hour from Southport, a wonderful course with a variety of holes. The land looks unremarkable but turns out to have quite a few undulations. The course turns around and back on itself so the direction wind is deceptive....More

Hoylake is a must play golf course for any golfer. For some reason American golfers do not go to the Lancashire coast, but this golf course is as memorable as any in Scotland or Ireland. It plays long, wind is almost always an issue. The...More
