Royal Liverpool

Site of the 2014 British Open, Royal Liverpool -- also known as Hoylake -- is the second-oldest seaside links golf course in England. The course, which will play host to The Open Championship for the 12th time, was founded in 1869 and spans 7,258 yards. Eighty-four years after Bobby Jones’ unprecedented Grand Slam run of 1930, Hoylake remains well known for being the second leg he completed when he became the only golfer in history to have won all 4 majors in the same calendar year.
