West Lancashire Golf Club

Liverpool, Merseyside

Hall Road West, Liverpool, Merseyside, L23 8SZ, England

West Lancashire Golf Club is the oldest club in Lancashire. Situated in natural seaside terrain, this fabulous links course measures 7,030 yards, with 11 holes over 400 yards.

Founded in 1873 by members of Royal Liverpool it is also one of the ten oldest clubs in England, boasting an illustrious history.

With some greens on plateaux and others concealed in hollows, as well as areas of danger lurking in its rough and sandy wilderness, the course is a challenging array of contrasts.

It has been used as an Open qualifying course, including for the 2006 Open at Hoylake. In 1976 at an Open qualifier, four young talents hinted at the impact they would make on the game: Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer and Ian Woosnam.


This great links course measures 7,030 yards, and is set in natural seaside terrain with immaculate greens. Eleven of the holes measure over 400 yards so by any standards it is a true championship course. It is also a course of contrasts - humps and hollows, shelter and bleakness. On calm summer evenings it is easy to forget how the winds blowing in from the sea can turn a game around and challenge even the most accomplished golfer. The clubhouse overlooks the ninth and eighteenth greens, giving panoramic views to the north and west over Anglesey and the Welsh Hills. Its long balcony is an ideal place for weary golfers to have a reviving drink or snack, whilst watching the sun go down over West Lancashire.
