From 13th to 20th July 2014 Royal Liverpool will welcome the best golfers in the world to compete at the 143rd 2014 Open Championship. The Open returned to Hoylake in 2006, after a gap of 39 years, the Championship returns to this historic venue, the 12th time the course has hosted golf's oldest Major.

In 2006, huge crowds enjoyed wonderful summer conditions as they watched Tiger Woods win the Claret Jug for the third time. In a week of wonderful weather on a superb, fast golf course, Tiger Woods produced an imperious display of intelligent golf that would ensure a second Open Championship victory in as many years.

Royal Liverpool — or Hoylake, as it is usually known — is the second-oldest seaside links golf course in England, and was the first course in North-West England to host The Open. Built on the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, it retained a dual role as horse racing venue and golf course for the first few years of its life.

The club played a key part in the development of Amateur golf: in 1885, it hosted the inaugural Amateur Championship; and 1921, it hosted the first informal match which would become the Walker Cup. Furthermore, two of the three amateurs who have won The Open were Hoylake members: John Ball and Harold Hilton. Fittingly enough the other amateur winner, Bobby Jones, won his third Open at Hoylake, an event which was the second of four steps in his unprecedented, and unmatched, grand slam.
