Open Competitions

Formby Golf Club hosts two open competitions annually

The first is the Formby Hare, a 36 hole scratch event which is part of the Lancashire Links Trophy, run alongside the S&A Bowl, which combines to make an R&A world amateur golf ranking event. This attracts some of the best amateur golfers in the country and beyond, and always provides a very worthy champion. Our winner for 2018 was Mr Oliver Ravenscroft from Hillside GC with fabulous rounds of 72 and 70. The date of the 2019 Formby Hare is Sunday 19th May.

The Lancashire Links Trophy, a World Amateur Golf Ranking Event was won by Ian Kenwright from Haydock Park GC  with a combined score of 289 for the 4 rounds. He was closely followed by Mark Duncalf and Geoff Harris on 293 and 294 respectively, both Formby members. Well done and congratulations to all.

We also host a Junior Open Competition where competitors play for the Marsh Plate and Allan Roy Trophy. The date of the 2018 Junior Open is Monday 20th August and the closing date for entries is Friday 4th August.
