Royal Liverpool or Hoylake, as it is usually known, is the second oldest seaside links golf course in England, and was the first course in North West England to host The Open.

The course has undergone a number of changes to since 2006 to present more of a challenge for the world's leading golfers. It is 54 yrds longer and bunkers have been replaced with new swales around the greens to punish errant shots and provide more variation.
