Formby Golf Club is one of the classic courses of the Lancashire coastline. Although somewhat protected from the elements by pine trees that line several of the holes, the course is a tough one, particularly when the wind does break through.

Formby has hosted many important national and regional amateur golf events, particularly three Amateur Championships. It was on this course that Jose-Maria Olazabal beat Colin Montgomerie to win the final of The Amateur Championship in 1984. The excellence of the course was underlined once again in 2004, when the Club had the honour to host the Curtis Cup - the world's greatest team event in Ladies Amateur Golf, a match between Great Britain and Ireland against the USA.

Formby is at the forefront of amateur championship golf in the U.K. and has again been invited to be one of the three final qualifying courses for The Open in 2006.

The lovely surroundings tempt many golfers to delay their departure, spending time in the clubhouse, where they are guaranteed a warm welcome.

Ganton Golf Club

There are few better places to play golf than Ganton Golf Club. The course is laid out on quiet undulating heathland which with a sandy subsoil is very freedraining. Impenetrable gorse abounds within the open nature of the heathland. There are few trees other than those on the boundaries; with plenty of space the original open character of the terrain has been retained.

As to the bunkers, Ganton has few peers; the player who is bunkered is punished for his error. In an age when golf designers are making bunkers less penal, this is a welcome feature.

The finest hole is possibly the eighteenth, requiring an accurately placed drive to give a clear shot to the sloping, well bunkered green. Championships have been won and lost on this hole for it sums up the principle of the whole Ganton layout; you are forced all the time to a choice of risks, if you are to achieve par.

Gary Player once said that Ganton is the only inland course worthy of holding the Open Championship. It provides a relentless test for those aspiring to the greatest achievements in the game; the fast running fairways and the firm true greens require the highest quality of shot making and control.

Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club is traditionally laid out on a narrow stretch of land extending to Sandwich Bay, and the natural links terrain has been subtly used to provide a wide variety of challenges.

On almost every hole there is an abundance of large sand dunes which establishes the undulating character of the course and makes it unique. Unlike most other courses the fairways are just as undulating and it is seldom that a completely flat stance can be obtained other than on the tees.

As with all traditional seaside links, the wind is a major factor which has to be taken into account when deciding on club and shot selection.

Built in 1869, on what was then the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, Royal Liverpool is the oldest of all the English seaside courses with the exception of Westward Ho in Devon, which was established just a few years earlier.

Much time has passed since then, but Royal Liverpool, despite a first glance of a flat and benign appearance, is still very much among the toughest and most demanding tests of golf. What’s more, in recent years, under the guidance of renowned course architect, Donald Steel, the course has been lengthened and upgraded to take on twenty-first century technology and increasingly athletic big hitters.

St George’s Hill remains today a golfing gem. Each hole, of which there are three loops of nine, is memorable and individual in character, with heather, silver birch and stately Scots pine - the fairways are undulating and follow the natural contours of the land.

The original concept of the course and estate was unique. It was the first development of a golf course being constructed with the intention of building luxury houses adjacent to the fairways. W G Tarrant, a local builder, had the foresight to see an opportunity when the land became available in 1911. Having acquired it, he enlisted the services of Harry Colt, the most prolific golf architect of his generation, to design the course.

And so St George’s Hill was born, being ready for play in October 1913. Undoubtedly Colt was a genius, one of the great, if not the greatest golf architect of all time and it has been suggested that St George’s Hill is his masterpiece.

Walton Heath Golf Club's Old Course was carved out of the heather and gorse of Walton Heath. It was designed by Herbert Fowler who was related by marriage to the founder, Sir Henry Cosmo Bonsor and opened for play in 1904.

This is a course that favours the lower handicap golfer. Some of the carries across the heather are quite lengthy and if you don't hit the fairways, you can often wave goodbye to your ball.

There are some really strong holes on the Old Course - one of the best of the outward nine is the 5th, a cracking 391-yard par four that demands a solid drive that must avoid the thick, tangly heather that frames the fairway. A mid-iron approach shot will find the green, amply guarded by bunkers left and right.

The heavily wooded landscape has aesthetic and strategic benefits in the sense that it is both easy on the eye and ideal for creating well-defined hole routings.

Winter: Cold and mainly wet. Pack lots of layers and waterproofs! Woolly hats and mitts will also help to keep you warm. The UK and Ireland will suffer the same harsh winters so it really is only for the hardy! That being said, the courses are empty and there can be some spectacular days in January and February. The green fees are lower too!

Spring: Very mild; a lovely time to play in England. Occasional “April showers” will fall but persistent rain is unusual. Pack shirts, sweaters and waterproofs. No need for woolly hats but a cap will help keep your head cosy.

Summer: Warm and occasionally wet. Time to break out the shorts! Pack shirts and slipovers. The temperature can get into the 80’s so best pack some sunscreen too.

Autumn: Similar to spring – mild and dry in The East, with rain in The West. Pack shirts and sweaters along with the waterproofs. Short sleeved waterproof tops are ideal for the autumn.
