Laid out when Wirral was countryside and seashore, the course fits effortlessly into the natural environment, covering the highest open land on the peninsula. This largely hidden green oasis retains its heritage of small copses and heathland and has become an important habitat for wildlife.
The course was originally 9 holes and designed by local lad Harry Hilton, a winner in the Open Championship at Muirfield in 1892, winning again at his home club Royal Liverpool in 1897. Hilton, a winner of the British Amateur Championship on four occasions, was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1978. Some characteristics of the original design have been maintained but the course was increased to 18 holes by 1907 and further extended after the Second World War and the clever design offers a subtle test of golf which is about so much more than how far you can hit the ball.
