All You Need to Know About Royal Liverpool
Royal Liverpool to host the Open Championship
Also known as Hoylake, the Royal Liverpool Golf Club will host the Open Championship in 2023.
The Royal Liverpool Golf Club links at Hoylake can be beautiful, uplifting, challenging, and even daunting when the wind really blows and the summer rough is deep. The course was created to be a demanding test of golf and remains so, and lies at the very heart of the history and development of the game in Great Britain.
Royal Liverpool is the oldest of all the English seaside Clubs with the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, which was established just a few years earlier. Despite its at first glance flat and benign appearance, Hoylake makes the trickiest demands of a player’s shot selection, distance control and accuracy.
The Club celebrated its 150th birthday in 2019, a year which also saw the Walker Cup return to Hoylake, having made its last appearance in 1983. The Match was a wonderful addition to the celebrations of Royal Liverpool’s proud history and important role in the development of the amateur game.
But where did it all begin? Back in 1869, the first golf at Royal Liverpool was played, meaning it is England's second oldest golf club. However, it would only have the royal title after Queen Victoria bestowed it in 1871.
Among the biggest tournaments in golf, the Masters Tournament is the most prestigious. Sports bettors would want to do research and compare odds when Masters betting. Find masters 2023 odds at The Sports Geek now! You can also check out some of the best Masters betting sites at The Sports Geek.
