As we all know, golf clubs from all over the globe have been facing the same challenges during the last 6 months, however, we are pleased to say in line with government and governing body advice we are now fully open as both a course and a clubhouse.
Following our decision to welcome visitors back to the club at the beginning of June, we are delighted to announce our iconic clubhouse opened on Saturday July 4th with our Dormy accommodation opening on Saturday August 1st.
We are taking every precaution as we move into the 'new norm' under guidelines offered by both the government and golfing's regulatory bodies.
The course has been helped by its enforced rest, the greens team have done some wonderful work during lockdown and the course is in absolutely splendid condition. We have seating arranged in our outdoor area including the patio situated to the side of the 18th green and the Memorial Lawn. This is in conjunction with the main bar and upstairs bar, both with reduced capacity in accordance with guidelines.
Tee times are still being spaced at 10 minute intervals as we look to continue keeping in line with social distancing recommendations and our professional shop will be open from 7.30am to 4.30pm.
We ask that you respect our on-course regulations which are situated around the club and on the first tee, these include no touching of the flags, no bunker rakes available and social distancing at all times. Please take time to study these prior to your game.
We do appreciate your patience over the past months and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to our club, enjoy your game!
Formby Golf Club Clubhouse
With our clubhouse and course now fully operational it is vital we still recognise the important measures in place around Formby Golf Club.
Whilst we are delighted we are able to experience all that Formby has to offer, there are some strict guidelines we need to adhere to. The guidelines have been put in place in accordance with advice from the government and golf governing bodies to keep both members, visitors and staff safe whilst we navigate our way through the current climate.
Social distancing is firmly in place alongside other measures including regular thorough deep cleans of all inside areas and outside seating areas, regular cleaning of all washing, toilet and locker room facilities and strict guidelines as to number of golfers within our social areas.
Full guidelines can be found around the clubhouse but please do contact our team on 01704 872164 if you would like these forwarded to you prior to your visit.

"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 👍👍"
