Measuring 6,707 yards, Caldy was mapped out in 1906 according to plans devised by Jack Morris, nephew of the famous Old Tom Morris. The original nine holes were supplanted into James Braid's 18-hole design, opened in 1931.
Since those early days, the design has changed little fundamentally, but much investment has been made to transform Caldy into a genuine championship venue. The scenery and setting were undeniable, and with the addition of USGA standard tee boxes and a number of other developments, the course is now held in high regard by the tournament bodies.
The Seniors' Open Championship is the most prestigious event to grace Caldy, which has also hosted Home Internationals and a number of high profile ladies events. The course is as enchanting as its surroundings are beautiful, which is why it is firmly established as part of the Wirral golf tour.
