Hmm, something went wrong... would you mind trying again?

Formby Hall Golf Club

Measuring over 7,000 from the championship markers, Formby Hall is a considerable test, and is regarded as a welcome addition to the seemingly endless list of excellent courses in the North-West.

Despite only opening in 1996, Formby Hall has already staged PGA Challenge Tour events, and it's now a regular stop on the PGA Europro Tour with the next event being staged on 4 August, 2010. There are also plans to establish an amateur golf centre with state-of-the-art practice facilities. The grandiose colonial style clubhouse sits proudly above the course, which was the result of much work to convert the marshland that existed previously.

Formby Hall prides itself in its superb putting surfaces, and the parkland resort style provides good variety alongside the numerous links courses dotted along the coastline.

Order a hot-dog or a beer from the clubhouse, which can be contacted by telephone from any hole on the course.

Golfer reviews

Tremendous value...

Thanks very much for arranging our golf break to Formby Hall this year, it was tremendous value.

The best meal we have ever had on a golf break away...

Many thanks YourGolfTravel for you efforts in arranging our golf trip; it was sensational!

The golf course at Formby Hall was a great test for our group as we had a range of handicaps from single figure to 28. Obviously there is a lot of water at Formby so you need to think your way around it which was the challenge we go for on these trips. The course condition was excellent with no great treks from green to tee and the 19th hole was clean and welcoming.

Formby Hall Hotel was fantastic and the executive suites you managed to arrange for us were the best we as a group of 10 had ever stayed in. The overall verdict from our group was 9/10. There were no delays or long waits to tee off, the course was fantastic and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Our evening meal was by far the best meal we have ever had on a golf break away.

Your service was superb and everything you did for us was spot on, we will definitely be booking with you in the future and I will recommend you to every golfer I know.

A fantastic venue for all golf enthusiasts...

I booked a one night golf break for our football team with dinner, bed and breakfast at Formby Hall and having just returned from the trip I can confirm it was amazing value for money.

This is a fantastic venue for all golf enthusiasts and on top of the championship golf, there was a fantastic spa to relax in post round of golf.

The staff concerned catered for all our needs and we were made to feel like VIPs!

The 18 hole championship course is a real challenge and in fantastic condition...especially when you consider the time of the year we visited (November).

The food in the restaurant for the evening meal was of the highest standard and the staff were courteous and polite. We had good banter with all the staff and they were very understanding as sometimes a gang of footballers can get a bit boisterous!

All in all this was a fantastic couple of days thanks to YGT’s very efficient booking system...I would waste no time in booking future golf breaks with you! Thanks again!

We'd recommend it to other golfers...

We really enjoyed our golf break to Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa. Everything was up to (possibly, even better than) our expectations and we'd recommend it to other golfers.

The hotel was great...

Thanks again for organising our golf break to Formby Hall.

The hotel was great and the leisure facilities were very enjoyable. We thought the bar was very welcoming and enjoyed having a few drinks after our rounds there.

We would recommend Formby Hall to anyone thinking of playing around this area - five stars!

Formby Hall itself was outstanding...

I have recently returned from a golfing trip to Formby Hall. Yourgolftravel.com made the booking very easy and couldn't help me enough in organising buggies and restaurant reservations.

Formby Hall itself was outstanding! The course was in excellent condition and is a true "risk/reward" course, making for some entertainingly risky shots!

The food and drink was exceptional too, as were the exec rooms we had, which over looked the 18th hole.

Overall this was fantastic value for money and couldn't be faulted from the point of booking to checkout! 

Altogether Formby Hall offers a very good experience...

Formby Hall was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We couldn't fault the hotel which, although very busy, was very efficiently run and the members of staff could not have been more helpful. We had upgraded rooms overlooking course which were spacious and very comfortable.

The food was excellent too and obviously freshly cooked, with a good choice on the menu and plentiful portions.

We all found the golf course to be pretty challenging, even for some of the lower handicappers. This did not spoil our enjoyment though, despite loss of quite a few golf balls in the many water hazards! 

Altogether Formby Hall offers a very good experience.

It was an absolute blast!

I would love to give you my feedback on our golf break to Formby Hall as it was an absolute blast!

After sorting all payments and bookings out with YGT months prior it was a case of just turning up and enjoying because there was nothing else we had to do apart from play golf, get key to room and eat...as simple as that!

We played the par 3 course followed by the 18 hole championship course on both days and it worked perfectly for us (six of us), as the par 3 course was a fantastic little warm up before the main event. The championship course was in fantastic condition and really challenging. 

After the golf each day we all had a relaxing swim and sauna in the spa which was beautifully clean and so relaxing followed by a quick trip back to the rooms which were also beautiful, clean and up to date.

After a quick change we were down to the restaurants for yet again beautiful delicious food. Then after the meal back to the bar for a well deserved couple of pints of ICE cold beer. Then the breakfast in the morning was also lovely, and you can help yourself to whatever you want – full english, yoghurt, fruit, pastries, etc, etc – and as much as you want! We even made a sausage toastie to take out for the golf!

All in all we had 4 games of golf, a three course evening meal, an “eat as much as you want” breakfast, swim, sauna and an overnight stay in lovely accommodation and much, much more for an incredible £130!

So YGT...you get a HUGE thumbs up from me and my mates, as does Formby Hall.

Formby Hall provided us with the best golf holiday we’ve been on so far...

On behalf of Silverdale Golf Club ladies I would like to thank you for booking our annual trip with such efficiency and patience as usual.

Formby Hall provided us with the best golf holiday we’ve been on so far. 

The weather was superb and the golf course was in good condition for this time of year. We enjoyed watching the herons, hearing the woodpeckers and the swans that were nesting just before the 18th green. We got some great photos!

The hotel had very clean and well kept rooms, and the surrounding areas, as well as the food, were excellent, both in the dining room and the 19th hole. It was just so comfortable. The flower arrangements finished off the public areas perfectly. Prices in the bar were reasonable with a good choice of drinks.

We all agreed that Formby Hall is blessed with excellent staff throughout who were happy to please us in every way; great value for money! This venue gets a ten out of ten from us and we hope to return next year.

Exceptionally comfortable with a wide range of facilities...

We thoroughly enjoyed our short golf break at Formby Hall Golf and Spa Resort. It's located just a few miles from the coastal town of Southport, which is styled as the capital of England's Golf Coast.

The hotel is quite modern in design and is exceptionally comfortable with a wide range of facilities including spa treatment, golf academy, pro shop and restaurant. The rooms are modern in design and well furnished. We upgraded to a deluxe room which gave a wonderful sunlit view of the 18th green and approaching golfers.

The clubhouse, which forms part of the hotel complex, is modern and spacious, serving a range of food and drink, with picture windows and a spacious patio overlooking the 9th and 18th greens. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The golf course itself is a parkland layout, which is quite flat with no severe slopes or gradients, making for an easy walk in pleasant surroundings. This makes it very suitable for golfers of all age ranges. The course is quite long and relies heavily on water for its defence. In fact, water features on some 14 of the 18 holes so it's probably wise to bring a good supply of balls! The greens are well kept and have interesting undulations to keep you on your toes when putting, but not so severe as to be beyond the average player.

The course is very popular and well used and was showing signs of winter repair work. Our visit was in early April, so I fully expect a few weeks growth will make these areas indistinguishable from the rest of the course which is perfectly well kept.       

You should be aware that as the hotel and course are conveniently located they are very popular, especially with golf societies which, unfortunately, can have an effect on the pace of play; something to bear in mind when choosing when to play this delightful venue.

I was very impressed with the team at Your Golf Travel who were professional, friendly and courteous. A couple of emails and phone calls and all the arrangements were made and everything on the golf break itself went smoothly. I shall certainly use you guys again.

Overall I'd highly recommend Formby Hall and Your Golf Travel to anyone who is looking for a good-value short golf-break in the North-West of England.

Everything about the trip was first class...

My first comment after I had finished my call with you was to my wife. I said that was probably the easiest hotel and golf booking I have ever made, yourgolftravel’s service was exceptional.

Everything about the trip was first class. We have never been to a hotel where everybody was so genuinely friendly. The hotel and its facilities, as well as the food, the golf course and everything we experienced was simply superb.

We have already recommended Formby Hall to all our friends and would score everything as 10 out of 10.

We are off to Celtic Manor next week and I only hope it’s as good as Formby Hall.
