Wallasey was most recently used for final qualifying for the 2006 Open Championship at Hoylake, and is reputed to be one the finest courses in the area. It is also the place where Dr. Frank Stableford devised the popular scoring system that still bears his name.
First conceived by St. Andrews legend Old Tom Morris, the golf course at Wallasey has since been reworked by Hilton, Hawtree, James Braid, and most recently the links golf guru Donald Steel.
The club was founded by members from Hoylake, whose own course was becoming overcrowded, and the links to Royal Liverpool do not end there; in 1930, when the legendary Bobby Jones won the Open Championship at Hoylake, he qualified at Wallasey, and whilst there, he posed for a portrait by local member J.A.A. Berrie which still hangs proudly in the clubhouse.
With easy access from Wirral to the other local courses and to Southport, Wallasey is well worth the visit.
Bobby Jones was awarded life membership in 1931 in recognition for his contribution to golf, and his ties with the club itself.
Wallasey Golf Club is ranked as one of the best courses in North West England
