Review for Formby

Reviewer Score:


Formby has a lot of of outstanding holes. We really didn't know much about it before adding it to our itinerary and were so pleased we did. A bit of slow start as the 1st feels very ordinary. The 2nd I liked even though visually it doesn't pop but the course keeps building and really gets the blood flowing at the 6th.

Some terrific driving holes but nothing particularly easy or too difficult. One thing I really appreciated was that a few bunkers had clearly been filled it. Yes!! Almost every golf course in the world would benefit from filling in some bunkers. Not all of them, just the excess of which there are many.

Anyway, Formby has made that bold move and filled in a few which is great. Mind you the course still has plenty. Towards the end of the round things flatten out and become less memorable but still a top notch course and one we really enjoyed. Much more so than a number of its better known close geographical cousins. For a good practice round you can also play Formby Ladies which is contained within Formby. It has some fine holes of its own and the Ladies Clubhouse serves a mean cup of tea and cake.
