West Lancs Golf Club, Lancashire
West Lancashire has been a Final Qualifying course for The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale and Hoylake. It is interesting to note that in the Final Open Qualifier of 1976, four young professionals in particular, competed at West Lancashire; Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo, Bernard Langer and Ian Woosnam. All four went on to win The US Masters Championship and the coveted green jacket. Of the golf links, Bernard Darwin wrote in 1922 ‘The West Lancashire Golf Club of Blundell is decidedly one of the more venerable of English clubs. The course lies on a noble stretch of golfing ground which is second to none, not even to the East Lothian or to the country around Troon or Prestwick'. Within the framework of the coastal dunes and the railway, a glorious balance unfurls. There are humps and hollows, greens on plateaux and greens in dells, contrast and comparative shelter in the inland holes and everywhere a sea of rough sandy wilderness to punish the wrongdoer.
