Four of the Wirral’s magnificent coastal golf courses are to host a new 72-hole amateur tournament, the inaugural Wirral Golf Classic, which will be held on the peninsular from September 13-17.

The Wirral Golf Classic aims to become a permanent fixture on England’s Golf Coast calendar. All entrants will play a round of golf at each of the four participating courses; Caldy, Heswall, Royal Liverpool and Wallasey, with a rest day during the week.

Caldy, a former venue of the Seniors’ Championship, boasts stunning views from its cliffs across the River Dee to Wales; slightly further down the river, Heswall was the venue for The R&A’s Junior Championships in 2006 and stages the North of England Under-16 Championships each year; Wallasey, home of the Stableford, is an Open Qualifying venue enjoying beautiful views across the Mersey to Liverpool, and the famous Royal Liverpool has hosted 11 Open Championships.

Flyers are being sent in January to all golf clubs in the UK and further information can be found at wirralgolfclassic.co.uk including promotional offers from accommodation providers in Wirral.
