Captain 2016 Mrs Sue Forbes
Formby Ladies Golf Club, founded in 1896, is situated at the heart of “England’s Golf Coast”, a 30 mile stretch of fabulous Lancashire coastline. Here you will find twenty links golf courses, including three Royals, our near neighbour Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham to the north and Royal Liverpool to the south.
It is a unique ladies only members' club, offering a truly testing links course as well as a warm, welcoming atmosphere to visitors, with first class facilities and excellent catering. Everything needed for a memorable day!
The course is set amongst coastal sand dunes and towering pines, adjacent to Formby Golf Club, with tight fairways, heathery rough and well protected greens. It provides visitors with a varied challenge and rewards accurate golf with careful course management. An enjoyable test for all handicaps!
The Club is delighted to welcome both ladies and gentlemen, offering a competitive range of golfing packages for individuals and societies alike, as well as running a number of Open Competitions throughout the year, details of which are under "Opens".
Formby Ladies also host the Leveret every year. This is a 36 hole Scratch Tournament on the England and Wales Ladies' Orders of Merit. In 2017 it becomes part of England Golf's initiative to help its leading women players boost their positions on the World Amateur Golf Ranking. For more details go to the England Golf website and WAGR, run by the R & A and the USGA.
We have also hosted the British Senior Ladies' Championship, the British Girls' Championship and the Lancashire Senior Ladies' Championship.
Formby Ladies encourages ladies who are considering taking up golf to join “Taster” sessions in conjunction with our resident professional, Andrew Witherup. Details can be obtained by clicking here
Open Champion, Greg Norman, was also very complimentary.
“Over 100 years old and still your course can stand the test of time. What a beautiful course. It clearly shows that courses do not have to be 7000 yards plus to be formidable.”
