Owner description: 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.

Golfers are welcome to follow in legends' footsteps to play our links.

“A great course and a wonderful old clubhouse.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I recently played Royal Liverpool GC again after a 23-year absence (I played on the Liverpool University golf team here). It was every bit as good as I remember. Great holes, good condition and a wonderful history. Can't wait to see how it plays during this year's Open Championship.

“Fabulous and Friendly”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is the seventh 'open venue' course we have played and ranks up there as one of my favouites.

Played start of September and course was in fabulous condition. The holes are all fairly interesting and the first tee shot sees out of bounds down the right and the clubhouse down the left, followed by a dog leg right. Great opening hole.

It was a very windy day when we played but the course was enjoyably playable off the visitor tees.

Par threes all good.

As a day out and experience, there is a range to hit some balls, two practice greens for chipping and a great putting green in front of the clubhouse.

The shop has a good range and staffwerereally friendly.

The starter explained the first tee shot and how the layout changes during an open when 1st becomes the 3rd and had some good stories from the 2006 open whilst we waited.

All round very enjoyable and would highly recommend.
