"We play plenty of courses that don't end up in Tourist Sauce, Strapped, etc., so we had to invent a new series to feature them.
Here's our first "Crash Course" from the 5,300-yard Formby Ladies Club"     

Adrian Senior tweeted "Just a note to say how well we were all looked after by your staff and members alike, we had a great day and look forward to returning again next year. The course was fantastic and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, thanks for having us ....."

Amazing day at Formby Ladies, unreal course in cracking condition.  Great hospitality and very welcoming.  Gary Owen

You have several beautifully designed short par 4's - all there to be attacked if you have the skill, but very well protected.  Dan Murphy

The perfect way to spend a summer's evening.  Some of the purest holes you could care to see.

Played Formby Ladies, my manifesto demands more courses like this.  Two and a half hours, bags of fun and undoubtedly proper.  Tom Irwin

What a super experience playing the beautiful Formby Ladies - what a course!  James Hutchinson

Loved Formby Ladies whose signature is strategic short 4's, all genuinely risk reward and beautifully simple.  England top 100 contender

"The West Lancashire coast is blessed with any number of top tier golf courses and amongst them Formby Ladies is a real gem.  Interesting holes, superb greens and all immaculately maintained,  I would recommend FLGC to anyone seeking an enjoyable round of golf on a fine links course.”

"Formby Ladies is one of the most enjoyable tests of Links golf I have ever played. Tight and demanding accuracy, whilst rewarding good shots, and as far as I have seen, never in anything but good condition. I would recommend this course as much as its illustrious neighbour."

"Just wanted to pass on our thanks to the team for a great day yesterday.  

We were made to feel very welcome and were well looked after. The course was fantastic, even if it did leave a few of us a bit battered and bruised! Very tricky in that wind...

The whole course was great but the middle 12 or so were absolutely wonderful. Proper golf!

We won't hesitate to recommend you and would love to come back soon"

All the best,

"Please pass on our thanks to your staff and members for their warm welcome we received on Saturday.

Our group of 20 golfers from Lambourne GC ( based in Burnham , Bucks) had a testing but fun time on the course !"

Our group visited Formby Ladies on Monday June 3rd, and what a treat it was thank you.

All of the the group thoroughly enjoyed the golf and the hospitality you showed us, it was very much appreciated.

What a wonderful golf course. We were all extremely impressed by everything.

Many thanks to you and all the ladies who made our visit so pleasurable.

Hopefully we’ll come and see you again some time in the future.

Kind regards

"I'm just dropping a line to thank you all for a lovely day's golf last Wednesday.  Our whole group really enjoyed your beautiful course and the welcome we received from staff, members and the pro shop.  The lady members we met were so friendly and the afternoon tea was the icing on the cake! We shall definitely be back, if we are in the area again.  Please pass on our thanks to all concerned"

Kind regards Jill Smith

"I would just like to comment on our recent visit to your club on Wednesday 2nd May.  We had a lovely visit and I can say that you made us feel so welcome.  The food and service we had in your club house was perfect.  It probably doesn't need saying but you have a club to be proud of (maybe due to the fact no men are  involved)"

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the use of the course yesterday. Your warm welcome and amazing hospitality was so lovely.  The condition of the course was exceptional for this time of year. You must be very proud of your golf course. It’s truly amazing. Think we enjoyed it more this time which I didn’t think was possible.  Keep your eyes on my YouTube channel for the release of the course Vlogs starting next week. They are very dramatic. Ha"
