Is 100 years really that long a time? Not in golfing circles it seems.
Bernard Darwin CBE, prominent golf writer and Grandson of Charles Darwin, famous British naturalist wrote of our course in 1910,
“The greens are beautifully green; they are likewise very true and keen enough, without ever being bare and hard. The lies, too are excellent, and it is altogether one of those courses where the player’s fate is entirely in his own hands. If he plays well everything will conspire to help him on his way, but he has got to play very well – good, sterling, honest golf: there is no mistake about that at Formby.”
I am sure there are plenty of members and visitors who, to this day, still come off after 18 holes with the exact same thoughts!
