If Woodhall and Walton feel like links courses somehow misplaced inland, then Formby is the opposite. Although linksy in many ways, magnificent pines line this hugely enjoyable and well-bunkered course. Regular tweaks and improvements over the years – some enforced, some through choice – have only served to strengthen the test.

Panellists’ comments: “The course rarely seems busy and is always in wonderful condition”; “Hard to beat for sheer variety”
