West Lancashire Golf Club overview
West Lancashire Golf Course overview
Ranked amongst the top 100 courses in the British Isles, West Lancashire is one of those hidden gems that gets overshadowed by more famous neighbors but is an absolute treat to play.
A par-72 and just under 7000 yards from the tips, there are humps and hollows, elevated tees with big undulating greens on plateaus and in dells, and everywhere a sea of rough. Pot bunkers are in all the right places and there are plenty of blind shots, which makes for a stern challenge and will have you wanting to play it again.
Holes 12 to 14 are a fine stretch. An excellent 175-yard par-3 followed by a spectacular par-4 played from an elevated tee and with views to die for, culminating in the toughest hole on the course that requires a 300-yard tee shot to give an unobstructed view of the green.
