In the midst of a third country wide lockdown it is important we look to the months ahead, the months that with a fair breeze will bring us into Spring and Summer and the opportunity to walk amongst the dunes, the crisp fairways, the tall, towering pines with views across the course and the Irish Sea before us.
Formby faired well during 2020 as a course, the time to breath and self repair was key to us enjoying the post lockdown periods where golf was an ideal release from troubled times. The course was full and we were able to welcome a number of visitors.
We hope that 2021 gives us more hope for extended periods of play, government guidelines have been adhered to strictly by all of us and warmer climes and safer days are not too far away.
Golf is available to book either online through https://www.formbygolfclub.co.uk/experience/golfing/green-fees/ or via our office on 01704 872164.
We will keep you informed as and when we receive news on the opening of the course and wish you all the very best for the coming weeks and months.

Formby During Lockdown
Lockdown number 3 has certainly been different fromthe previous 2, no beautiful sunshine and warm evenings and no walks along the beach next to the course.
As a club we understand these times are very difficult for our members and as such produced a series of online activities, all of which so far have been extremely well attended. Events included online 'Professional Educational Evenings', Club history nights, evening with professional sportsmen and weekly quiz evenings.
We are continuing to follow the strict guidelines given to us by the government but hope that the course and club will be open at the earliest opportunity.
Booking for your golf is still available, please click here or by calling our team on 01704 872164.
Lockdown, looking very positively, has given the course a period of time to refresh and regenerate and we expect to see true greens, tightly cut green fairways and views to die for our on return, we hope to see you there.

"Super track. Tough today as the wind was up. Hospitality from staff was 1st class. A must visit course."
"We played 11 yrs ago - we’d forgotten how great a course Formby really is. One of the best in the area. Nice to have pine trees for shelter and also the fairways snaking through mounds of rough - pinpoint accuracy required to keep the ball out of the thick rough. very challenging and good on the eye. Greens in fantastic condition too. Clubhouse has also been refurbished and staff very friendly."
"From walking in to Reception the welcome was exceptional. ALL the staff and members did their best to make us feel welcome over our two day stay. A true golfing experience, what a course 👍👍"
