A golf club steeped in history

Formby Golf Club & Formby Ladies Golf Club was founded in 1884 and is steeped in history and has many memories attached to it throughout the years.

In 2016 the course was host for the Arnold Palmer Cup in which Europe beat the USA by 18½ to 11½, players included Matthias Schwab, Antoine Rozner and Will Zalatoris. In 2009 Italy’s Matteo Manassero was victorious in the Amateur Championship, a player who still holds the record of being the youngest golfer to win a DP World Tour event.

In 2004, Formby held the 33rd Curtis Cup which was won by the USA and in 1984 José María Olazábal beat Colin Montgomerie to win The Amateur Championship.

The recognisable undulating fairways

It will be a tough test for many of the players this year with the weather conditions playing a huge part in how the course will play. Bunker shots will have to be strategic, and the undulating fairways are a symbol of the course, meaning every shot will be merely different, giving the players tough decisions to make when it comes to club choice.

The rough is stricken with heather and the element of the pine trees almost gives it a parkland feel, but the players will need to remember that the course will suit links lovers but there are other hazards to be aware of.

The Legends are ready for the Formby test!

In the field this week will consist of 1991 Masters Champion and former World Number One Ian Woosnam, along with 1999 Open Championship winner Paul Lawrie and former Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley.
