West Lancashire Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

Not a picturesque links course but it makes up for this shortcoming with the challenge it presents. A tough finishing stretch that will test every shot in your golfing locker.

This is an unsung hero of England’s ‘Golf Coast.’ It’s a class links act and is steeped in history – 1892 and 1897 Open winner Harold Hilton is a former secretary of the club.

With two loops of nines emanating from the clubhouse, the course is flanked on one side by the railway line and the Irish Sea on the other. Eleven holes are 400 yards plus but although visually it appears fairly flat and defenceless, looks can be deceptive – if there’s some wind around, it can turn into a real monster.

Founded in 1873, West Lancs is the oldest golf club in Lancashire and is among the top ten oldest clubs in England.  The club was founded by members of the Royal Liverpool GG and some became members of both clubs. The club is twinned with Royal Montreal GC, Canada's oldest golf club and  also founded in 1873. West Lancs’ most famous son is Harold Hilton, the greatest amateur player these shores has ever produced who also went on to win two Open Championships (1892 and 1897).
