Built in 1869, Royal Liverpool Golf Club is one of the oldest courses on the English seaside. The course, known among locals as Hoylake, was built on what was formerly the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club and for the first years it was open, it doubled as both a golf course and a horseracing track. Over the years the golf course has hosted several major tournaments, with the most memorable being the 1930 Open won by Bobby Jones, it was the second leg of his Grand Slam that year. Avid golfers know the Hoylake layout as being a formidable test but also unique in that there is nothing artificial about its design. Although it's seemingly flat, the subtle undulations become more pronounced once you're playing. There are only a few holes that play in the dunes while the rest are subject to the ever-changing winds.
