Wallasey Golf Club


Back to list of Courses

Wallasey Golf Club was founded in 1891 and, with its undulating fairways and sand dunes it is a traditional links of 6,607 yards. It is situated on the Wirral peninsula overlooking Liverpool Bay and the Irish Sea, leaving it open to the elements and in particular, the wind. It is one of the great links courses of the north, originally designed by Tom Morris Senior and later altered by other notable golfing figures Alec Herd, Harold Hilton and James Braid.

Wallasey Golf Club is the home of the Stableford scoring System. The Stableford scoring system was devised by Dr Frank Stableford, a member of and Club Captain (1936) Wallasey. The first Stableford competition was played at Wallasey on 16th May 1932. Visitors to the club will be able to see the famous painting of Bobby Jones, by artist and Wallasey member J.A.A.Berrie, RA. Jones sat for the painting during his ’Grand Slam’ year of 1930, when the Open was held at nearby Hoylake with qualifying at Wallasey.


Course Details

Wallasey is a classic links, originally designed by Tom Morris Snr., but with many later alterations influenced by such illustrious names as Hilton, Hawtree and James Braid. Recent improvements were designed by Donald Steel. Most of the course is played through sand dunes, with few flat lies on tight, running fairways. The greens are firm and fast, and constant sea breezes make clubbing difficult. Wallasey provides a stern but fair challenge, and is a superb test of golf for players of any standard. Wallasey was a Final Qualifying course for the Open Championship when it returned to Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) in 2006.

The clubhouse was opened on Christmas Eve 1892, the clubroom (present lounge) commanding magnificent views over mighty sand dunes and the Mersey Estuary. The opening was recorded in a January 1893 issue of Golf which described the clubhouse as “a handsome structure built at a cost of nearly £3,000, delightfully situated and designed to fulfil every possible requirement from both a social and golfing point of view”. A point of view that still holds true to this day. The original clubhouse was somewhat different from what we see today, although as with most older Golf Clubs there has been a slow evolution of the layout and facilities. The spike bar was an extension built in the sixties and the snooker room, with two full size tables, used to occupy what is now the dining room. The front of the clubhouse was upgraded as part of a Millennium project, however the layout of the main lounge area has changed little over the years.
