The Open Golf Championship 2014
Between the 17th - 20th July 2014 the biggest show in golf will come to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake, on the beautiful Wirral Peninsula.
The tournament, golf's oldest Major is being staged at the prestigious Club for the 12th time in it’s illustrious history.
The venue has witnessed a string of unique Open Champions: in 1907, Arnaud Massy became the only Frenchman to have won the title; Fred Daly became the first Irishman to do so, in 1947; and Argentine golfer Roberto De Vicenzo became the first South American to win a Major when he lifted the Claret Jug in 1967.
The Open returned to Hoylake in a blaze of sunshine in 2006 after a 39-year absence, when Tiger Woods became the first back-to-back Open Champion since Tom Watson in 1983 in front of 230,000 people, a record attendance for the Championship in England.
Wirral is home to some of the most amazing and challenging courses in the country including, of course, Royal Liverpool Golf Club, home of the British Open Championship in 2006. Wirral forms part of the English Golf Coast, with striking countryside and easy access to many exceptional golf courses which suit all different levels of skill and ability.
