Holiday Inn Express Liverpool Hoylake is located within easy walking distance of this famous and iconic course. Only a long par 5 separates us from a course that is the second oldest golf course in England.
Built in 1869, on what was then the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, Hoylake is the oldest of all the English seaside courses with the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, which was established just a few years earlier. Robert Chambers and George Morris were commissioned to lay out the original Hoylake course, which was extended to 18 holes in 1871. This was also the year in which the Club was granted its Royal designation thanks to the patronage of His Royal Highness The Duke of Connaught.
Royal Liverpool has played host to The Open Championship on a number of occasions over its 150 year history and such influential names as Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones, Peter Thompson and a certain Eldrik 'Tiger' Woods have all claimed Open Championships at the daunting links course.
It is a must for any golfer who is visiting Wirral to play to make the effort to play one of the worlds' truly iconic courses.
Holiday Inn Express Hoylake has the ability to build a package for you around playing at one of the Open courses and the opportunity to play Royal Liverpool is one that is a must for any golfer.
