Membership at Royal Liverpool Golf Club

We have a unique and rich history, a world renowned golf course and a warm and welcoming club environment.  Our members are bound together by a love of and respect for the game.  Golf at Royal Liverpool is, therefore, much sought after and we are a busy club with a very active playing membership and a regular flow of guests.  We do, however, retain focus on our long term future and endeavour to find places for players who are enthusiastic and keen to contribute to the Club’s golfing traditions and heritage.

Juniors and Youth Membership

Youth membership begins at age 12.  There is strong competition for limited places but we carefully consider applications from genuinely keen players (you do not necessarily have to be the next Rory!) who are looking to eventually become full members of the Club at age 18 or 22.

For those age 6 to 11 years, our Professional’s team runs an academy providing coaching and experience in all aspects of the game plus the opportunity to take part in our organised golf events during school holiday periods.  We look to offer Youth membership beyond that for selected candidates.

Parents of 6 to 11 year olds should e-mail our Head Professional and his team directly on - [email protected] - to enquire about current opportunities. 

University Players

The Club already maintains strong links with Liverpool University.  If you are a student in the region, a competent player, a member of a golf club at home and keen to explore the possibilities of playing here, you are very welcome to do so.

Moving to our area – Full Membership opportunities

If you are a competent golfer, have been a contributing member of a recognised golf club and are relocating to the North West, you may not be able to find a proposer and the necessary support from within our existing membership to sponsor your application.  In these circumstances, the Club may consider offering temporary membership to a limited number of exceptional applicants, usually for a twelve month period, during which time that person has the opportunity to fully take part in Club activities and find the support necessary to move on to full membership status.  Those near or at retirement age, unless exceptional players or contributors to the sport, are less likely to be considered, as our ‘senior’ categories are fully subscribed.

*At present we are particularly interested in encouraging applications for our ladies’ section.  We encourage ladies playing golf at all levels and have an active and inclusive social agenda.

You should initially contact our Club Secretary by e-mail – [email protected]  - for further advice on youth, student and temporary full membership opportunities, providing brief personal details and an outline of your golfing experience to date.
