Wallasey Golf Course was laid out by esteemed course designer, Old Tom Morris, in 1891.
Morris worked as a greenkeeper, clubmaker, ballmaker, golf instructor, and course designer as well as playing match and tournament golf. He came second in the first Open Championship in 1860, and won the following year. He followed this up with further victories in 1862, 1864 and 1867. He still holds the record as the oldest winner of The Open Championship at 46. Also, he was part of the only father/son couple being winner and runner-up.
Morris played a role in designing courses across the British Isles. Wallasey is in very esteemed company. Morris course design includes Carnoustie, Kirkcaldy, Prestwick, Muirfield, the Jubilee Course St Andrews, Balcomie, Moray, Bridge of All, Royal North Devon, King Edwards Bay Golf Club, Castletown and Killermont.
