Attended this golf club but a Christmas meal with a group. Beautifully cooked main course and well presented. Felt let down by the Christmas pudding though as it appeared to be a small upside down cupcake with toffee sauce over the top. Friends deserts much better. This has not been off putting in any respect as I shall certainly return.... More

Played Formby golf course today. Fantastic course and very challenging. Greens are fast as you would expect and the wind was gusting on the back nine which made this true test. Highly recommend playing here, food is really good as well as service with a friendly atmosphere.

4 of us travelled to Formby GC and what a day we had, 36 holes we played and well worth the money. Staff very helpful and thanks to the Pro on the day for letting 2 of our 4 use a buggy due to a medical condition. Far superior to Hillside which we played the day before. Food very nice... More

Our experience was made all the better with the Pro getting us off before a 4 ball and a 4 ball members group calling us through immediately on the second. Course in great... More

This was a good track and provides good value. The course is home to the endangered red squirrel and we were fortunate enough to see one of the red squirrels during our round. The course is fairly hilly and I would rate it as a must play while staying in the Southport Area along with Hillside and the big 3... More

Just a few minutes away from Southport, Forby presents a challenge equal to the nearby Open Championship venues. The course moves away from the Clubhouse on relatively flat ground but soon finds rolling landscape, sand dunes and quite a bit of pine forest. The uphill par 3 10th has all the appearance of a relatively easy shot unless the wind... More

Formby is a hidden gem, known to the English but not Americans. It has everything for a memorable golf experience. The clubhouse is beautiful and if you can get in reserve a dormy room in the clubhouse. Sleeping in the clubhouse before and after a great round makes for a great time. No driving after drinks and a meal just... More
