    Formby Hall - Membership

    Morning all!

    I trust everyone had a nice Christmas and New Year.

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone is (or has been) a Member of Formby Hall Golf Club?

    I am potentially moving on from our place and I've been offered a pretty decent deal at Formby Hall. Now, my main area of concern is that I see Formby Hall as being more of a "Resort Type' of place. Generally plenty of society days and corporate's going out (IMO). The staff there seem excellent, and the course is always in decent condition, but I am a little worried about the above.

    Any comments would be appreciated. Wouldn't want to sign up and discover that I can't get a game due to it being full of visitors / societies!


    Cheers

    Mate of mine left for this reason , booked his tee time in advance only to be told a society had booked in and he had to wait over an hour.
    This happened to often so he went elsewhere.

    Just thinking about a change. Nothing major wrong with our place but not enjoying it as much of late.

    Hows it looking there? Bit wet?

    I like to play there now and again but I couldn't play there week in week out.

    I'd stick with a members club over a resort curse.

    You know what, it’s actually playing better than it ever has. Course is in great nick and the drainage is vastly improved.

    I played there a few times this year, and found Southport Municipal to be less wet in some cases. I cannot see how their drainage has improved. It's quite a good course, and with it always being wet, is a test off the whites.

    I'm not a member, but I'm amazed how easy it is to get a tee time there, and there doesn't seem to be much time set apart for members. The rounds I've played there this year were twilight rounds, around 3PM mostly. I have never got around there in less than 4 1/2 hours playing as a single, or a pair. The round times are stupidly long.

    if formby hall had been closer to liverpool i would have joined there no problem. much better than all the city courses.

    the tee times thing would resolve itself in time.

    Played there on a weekend outing in May 2016. Whilst the course was busy, there was reserved tee times on the saturday for the members and they had tee reserved for a medal during the early afternoon.
