It has been widely anticipated and today is has been made official – Hoylake is to host the 2014 Golf Open Championships. It will be the 12th time the Royal Liverpool Club has played to the Championships and follows the very successful 2006 event (won by Tiger Woods) that drew record crowds of some 230,000.
Paul Cassidy, captain of Royal Liverpool Golf Club, comments:
We are very proud of our club’s rich heritage and the many memorable golfing moments staged at Hoylake since our founding in 1869.
We are extremely thrilled to be invited to host The Open Championship in 2014.
