This championship seaside links course is to be found just south of Royal Birkdale in North-West England. Founded in 1884, Formby was originally laid out by Willie Park as a 9-hole course. The 18-hole course was modified by James Braid and Harry S. Colt in the 1920s and, more recently, it has been extended by Donald Steel. Playing in parts through pine trees, which provide some protection from the wind, the course requires accuracy rather than distance. Formby has been declared an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and there is a profusion of wildlife and plants, as well as magnificent sand dunes.
