The British Open once again returns to Hoylake for the 143nd Open Championship July 17-20, 2013. Royal Liverpool GC (also called "Hoylake" for the village where it's located) last hosted this great event in 2005, when Tiger Woods won an emotional victory soon after his Fathers passing.

Our Favorite: The Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa

Formby Hall is a great combination of a boutique hotel with a 4-star luxury spa hotel and golf resort on England’s Golf Coast, between Southport and Liverpool. Following a recent $15 million refurbishment, the grand colonial-style clubhouse and an existing 18-hole championship golf course have been complimented by a 62-room hotel and, most recently, a lavish spa and health club. Besides the championship course onsite, the hotel also offers a superb 9-hole par-3 course, with a new driving range and a unique residential PGA academy. The superbly equipped health club and quality restaurant and bars make Formby Hall the ideal destination for The Open Championship or other vacations along England’s Golf Coast!

ROYAL LIVERPOOL GC (Hoylake)

Royal Liverpool and The Claret Jug

ROYAL LIVERPOOL GCHoylake

(7,110 yards – par 72) This historic course is located in the western Liverpool suburb of Hoylake, in the heart of a truly great golfing region. In 1930 Bobby Jones won the British Open here, the second leg of his Grand Slam, and Tiger Woods won in 2006.  The 2014 Open will be played here too. Although relatively flat, the lay of the land is vulnerable to the strong prevailing winds which are likely to blow here. It is best advised to play here with a caddy your first time out as many tactical shots are required and many hidden hazards await including several in course out-of-bounds. Royal Liverpool also features perhaps England’s most elegant and welcoming clubhouse and locker rooms, recently refurbished to the highest standards. Ranked #69 in the world by Golf Magazine in 2013.  WWG Grade: A
