Formby Ladies Golf Club
Founded in 1896 Formby Ladies Golf Club is an independent golf club, with an 18 hole course and clubhouse situated within the 470 acre Formby Golf Club estate, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Formby Ladies’ narrow fairways, lined with heather and its small greens protected by well positioned pot bunkers certainly demand that all golfers play with precision rather than relying on length of shot.
Even a mighty hitter like double Open Champion, Greg Norman, could not disguise his admiration for this hidden gem when he played it a few years ago:
“Over 100 years old and still your course can stand the test of time” he said. “What a beautiful course, it clearly shows that courses do not need to be 7,000 yards plus to be formidable”.
Malcom Gregson ex-Ryder Cup player and European Seniors’ Tour pro also praised the layout saying:
“It’s a wonderful, testing course, with a premium on accuracy.”
All visitors will be delighted by the warm welcome and friendly staff.
The course at Formby Ladies should not be missed by golfers, male or female, who are visiting Formby or the other courses on England’s Golf Coast. To book a tee-time call the secretary/manager on 01704 873 493.
