“Even though I lost to Jose Maria Olazabal at Formby in the final of the 1984 Amateur Championship I still hold fond memories of the club and the course. Formby provides golfers with a truly wonderful experience from both a playing and aesthetic point of view. The stunning blend of mature dunes, pine trees and heath land offers an alluring setting and one that compliments the other great courses on the Lancashire coastline.”

“There will always be a special place in my heart for Formby Golf Club. Its links are a tremendous test of golf and the reception I received from the club and its members during the week of the 2009 Amateur Championships was very touching. Formby has so many exceptional holes but my most memorable if the Par 3 16th. At 139 yards it’s short, however, the small raised green is guarded by three deep bunkers and depending upon the wind you can be hitting wedge or 4 iron. Par is definitely a good score here.”
Matteo Manassero
“For me Formby is the prize jewel on what is England’s finest golfing coast. I was fortunate enough to grow up playing my golf on Formby’s fairways and it no doubt helped to teach me a lot of skills and shots that have propelled me to being the player I am today. My favourite hole is the first at Formby, I have always been a fan of opening holes that cut out the small talk and get straight to the point. The 1st at Formby certainly does that, out of bounds all the way down the right side of the hole provides a daunting tee shot to even the most accomplished of golfers and asks the question of you form the opening moment. ”
