Another of those fabulous links on the Lancashire/Merseyside coastline, Formby will test every department of your game. Despite the rolling nature of the terrain and soft, springy turf, it also has numerous mature trees, unlike some links courses, and to stray into them can be costly, both in golf balls and on your scorecard. But they do serve the purpose of offering some protection from the otherwise ubiquitous wind. Opened in 1884, Formby received a make-over from Willie Park in 1912 and was then further modified by James Braid a decade later. Such is its quality that it has hosted the Curtis Cup, qualifying for The Open and the Amateur Championship four times – most memorably in 1984 when Jose Maria Olazabal beat Colin Montgomerie in the final. And if you really want to know what Formby is like, visit the club’s website and you can get a video fly-over of every hole, along with advice on how to play it. Our tip: Stay out of the damned bunkers.
