The original course at Royal Liverpool dates to around 1900, but the present Hoylake layout is for the most part the work of legendary designer Harry S. Colt, who was called in in 1923, apart from some minor renovations, the most recent carried out by Donald Steel in anticipation of the return of the Open to the club in 2006 for the first time in some four decades. Each and every hole on the Hoylake has its special and distinctive charms and challenges, but the heart of the course is the stretch from the eighth through thirteenth holes, which are threaded amid dunes right by the ocean. A round opens, though, with the doglegged, par 4 1st, which, with its confusing boundaries, is perhaps the toughest on the course, though it, like the concluding holes, plays out over fairly level ground. The Hoylake represents the living history of tournament golf in England.

Played twice at Hoylake, once off the back and once off the men's tees. If you are a single figure golfer I would strongly recommend playing off the back as it allows the features of the course to stand out. Off the forward tees you often can fly the hazards and have approach shots that don't suite the contours of the green.
