One Jewel in the Golf Coast's crown

If you are a serious stick (Plus to 6 handicap), I think that you will love Royal Liverpool. They will let you play from almost 7000 yards; the yellow tees are almost 6500. Hoylake is on flat ground, but still maintains a lot of golfing interest. Not a lot in the way of views here so the aesthetic lovers won't be too happy here (just a couple of holes with sea views). The course plays very firm and fast. You will need to adjust quickly or run off the back of greens. There is out of bounds on two holes which is inbounds-caused by the driving range; this only adds to the difficulty of trying to cut off dog legs on approaches. The greens don't have a lot of movement in them and are some of the flattest which I have ever encountered in the UK. The problem is that the break is small and not obvious.
This is a championship test of controlling ball flight and hitting it where you must or there is penalty in the form of well placed bunkers. The good news, for the challenge seeking golfer, is that it is all in front of you. Only one hole with a blind tee shot.
I found Hoylake to be subtle in what is was; this made it all the more challenging as nothing was too obvious on the greens. The course is a loop so you will encounter wind from all directions.
Off the course, they have all you need: Driving Range, practice area of chipping/bunker practice, and a putting green. The clubhouse is nice as is the restaurant as are the members and employees. They make you feel very welcome. The guy I was paired up with had a caddie and if you pay for one, then he was helpful with lines off tees, approaches and reading greens.
Odds are that if you are on the "Golf Coast", then you will book the three Royal Open Host courses. Of course, you are paying more for those three than anything else in the area. This one has Tiger, Rory and Bobby Jones as part of their history; so if that is something that matters to you, then you will want to come here. Regardless, this one will not disappoint.
