'A message from the Captains'
We have great pleasure in extending a warm welcome to Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
One of the great joys of golf is being able to play on the same courses as our heroes from the professional and amateur games. Throughout the year we take pride in sharing our magnificent and historic links with many golfing colleagues from around the world. We would also encourage visitors to explore the clubhouse with its excellent facilities and wealth of golfing memorabilia.
We are fortunate that Craig Gilholm and his greenkeeping staff maintain the links to a very high standard enabling us to play throughout the year. In fact we have the sense that the course would be ready to hold The Open even at short notice.
The past year has also seen an increasing diversity of birdlife on the links. In addition to many pheasant, wagtails, skylarks and kestrels, there are barn owls and short eared owls also in residence. We hope to see more of them in the future.
During the past year Hoylake hosted the Cheshire Strokeplay Championship which was won by Tom Heggarty with Matthew Jordan finishing third. Both are Royal Liverpool members who delivered a great result for the home club! In the coming season the Club will host the Cheshire Girls Championship together with the 19th Harold Hilton Tournament and the 53rd Open Scratch Mixed Foursomes, both of which have become eagerly anticipated annual events.
We believe the links and clubhouse at Hoylake provide an unrivalled golfing experience and hope that you will take away many happy memories of your time spent with us.
