Here's what people are saying about Formby Golf Club

A selection of our recent reviews:

“Just completed a few days playing a few of the Lancashire Links courses. Formby was a highlight of the trip. You are made to feel welcome by the lovely reception staff. The course has a great feel to it and is nicely laid out. It starts with a couple of easy (relatively) par 4 holes before showing it’s pedigree as a challenging links. The tee times are nicely spaced so that it doesn’t feel like you are chasing the game in front. At the end of your game there is a super equiped locker room where you can have a nice shower before having a bite to eat in the clubhouse bar. If you are thinking of playing Birkdale definitely give Formby a look, the standard of the course is of equal measure.”

“Another fantastic weekend up at formby gc. This is our 2nd year running and again the course the staff and all the members are brilliant!! Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, always happy and willing to help, the members ask for your opinion on the course which is always perfect, we stay in the dormy house which is always clean and warm. The clubhouse is fantastic and full of history. First impressions you would think such a course would be Really strict and uptight because of the location and the courses ranking, but it’s far from that, it couldn’t be any more hospitable and welcoming!! Again I’d just like to say a big thank you for the weekend and we are already booked up for next year.”

“The clubhouse is tasteful and classy and the members were very, very friendly and helpful!
A top spot with a unique atmosphere … !!!”

“Formby is one of the best places in England! The Links Course with deep pot bunkers runs through wooded areas at times! The tracks 7,8,9,10 & 11 belong to the best I’ve ever played! Unique and spectacular!

The clubhouse is tasteful and classy and the members were very, very friendly and helpful!
A top spot with a unique atmosphere … !!!”

Thank you”

“Wonderful club, friendly outgoing members make visiting here a great experience. The golf course is outstanding and has hosted many great competitions. We were fortunate enough to hold an Arnold Palmer Cup at this venue and I can only say that it was a treat. If you have the opportunity to visit don’t miss it.”

“One of the very best courses I have ever had the privilege of playing. Facilities and staff service are also 2nd to none! Ps I only gave 5 stars as I couldn’t give 7 !!!”

“Words cannot describe this golfer’s paradise. There is no other course like it in the area. I discovered this course fairly recently and will not stop coming backThe clubhouse is classic, the dormy is a treat (yes, you can actually stay in the clubhouse!), the staff are charming and the course is outstanding. Varied geography (woodlands, links and views of the sea-what more could you ask for?) I do not even want to compare it to the 3 Open courses in the area since it is superior to those courses in many ways. It is a true, world-class golf experience. Right when you are being tested you are rewarded with a memorable hole that you will be telling your friends about for years to come.”

“5 star from the moment I emailed Julie . Nothing is a problem. Everyone has been helpful, thoughtful, understanding, gone above and beyond to make this a memorable 2 days at a superb test of golf . Was lucky with the weather a very nice 14° at end of Feb … courses were great.”
