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

What a special golf course this is! Played all over the world and can't remember enjoying a course more. Excellent condition, amazing tee boxes, greens and bunkers. Worth every penny. Everyone very welcoming. If you are passing by this course ....don't! Stop and treat yourself. We will be back I'm sure.

This was a one night including. two games of golf on the famous Formby links. We stayed the night in the golf club dormy house and although pretty basic, especially the toilet facilities, it was quite comfortable, the staff were pretty helpful but very disappointed there was no evening catering, we had to go elsewhere for a meal,a bit inconvenient....
