Originally built on the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club in 1869, Royal Liverpool has hosted The Open on 12 occasions over 160 years and will welcome the new era of The Open in 2023. The last Open here was in 2014, where Rory McIlroy famously stormed to victory, fending off a late charge from Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler to claim his first Claret Jug. Prior to that, peak Tiger Woods was crowned Champion Golfer in the 2006 event, finishing two shots clear of fellow compatriot Chris DiMarco to win his first major since the passing of his father, Earl Woods, two months earlier.Read moreRead less

The Royal Liverpool Golf Club links at Hoylake can be beautiful, uplifting, challenging, and even daunting when the wind really blows and the summer rough is deep. The course was created to be a demanding test of golf and remains so, and lies at the very heart of the history and development of the game in Great Britain.
Royal Liverpool is the oldest of all the English seaside Clubs with the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, which was established just a few years earlier. Despite its at first glance flat and benign appearance, Hoylake makes the trickiest demands of a player’s shot selection, distance control, and accuracy.
The Club celebrated its 150th birthday in 2019, a year which also saw the Walker Cup return to Hoylake, having made its last appearance in 1983. The Match was a wonderful addition to the celebrations of Royal Liverpool’s proud history and important role in the development of the amateur game.
The Open Championship in 2023 will be the thirteenth Open to be held at Royal Liverpool since its beginnings in 1869.

Where: The Beatles Story, Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool
Liverpool, in England’s northwest, was once a maritime capital with a rough-around-the-edges image. Fast-forward a few centuries and Liverpool is home to world-famous musicians, premier football teams, exciting live music venues and has transformed into a pleasant and sophisticated riverside city.
Liverpool, in England’s northwest, is famous for being the home of The Beatles and the Liverpool Football Club. The old port town was once Britain’s’ second-most important city, with a very rough-around-the-edges image. In recent times, an urban regeneration has transformed the city into one of the most pleasant in northern England. Locals have welcomed the new hip attitude, which has turned the city into a hub of live music, craft pubs, gourmet eats, art museums, and modernised cultural attractions.
Located on the River Mersey, the city still revolves around its maritime past. The Royal Albert Dock is worth being the focal point of your stay and we’ve selected convenient hotels to ensure you’ll be a part of the action. Liverpool has a lot to offer and is a stepping stone to explore the history and beauty of northern England; with plenty of quality golf on offer too. Top attractions include The Beatles Story, Cavern Club, Anfield, live music venues, Museum of Liverpool, International Slavery Museum and St George’s Hall.
