Set in 200 acres of parkland, the beautiful Formby Hall was built in 1523 for the Formby family, who were an integral part of the development of the town, even influencing the iconic landscape that is known today.
After investment from developers, Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa was established and has since become one of the top destinations in the North West. With a beautiful golf course, hotel and spa, the features of the resort attract tourists to enjoy a touch of luxury hospitality in the peace and tranquillity of secluded woodland.
Its plush setting and delightful amenities also appeal to the locals who may want to experience a taste of luxury on their front doorstep. Many locals who frequent the golf course also enjoy visiting the hall’s Fairway Bar & Restaurant, enjoying the award-winning food and soaking up the scenery of the course.
With over seventy-six luxurious bedrooms on offer, a stay in the Formby Hall hotel is a must for those who are in need of a night away from their everyday stresses. Each bedroom is fitted with a spacious bathroom and comfy bed where guests can relax and unwind. 2Food & Drink

Formby Hall is best known for its championship golf course, having hosted several respected games including the Challenge Tour and the Euro-Pro Tours. With two courses available for guests to choose from, including one 18-hole course and one 9-hole course, Formby Hall is the perfect destination for keen golfers.

With a mixed terrain that includes pot bunkers and wooded areas, it is an exciting and challenging task to conquer for both those who are new to the sport and those who are confident players. The smaller course, Woodhey Dunes, is a great option for those who may be time poor, with the course being able to be completed within an hour. It is known as one of the best courses of its kind in the UK.
Formby Hall is also home to the PGA Golf Academy, a great way to improve skills for both beginner, intermediate and elite players. Members will have access to cutting-edge technology to help improve their performance and guidance from professional coaches who are PGA qualified and AA professionals. It is with this personalised service that golfers can understand their personal areas of improvement, helping them to develop their skills at a faster pace.
