The seaside town of Hoylake lies west of Liverpool in the Wirral, overlooking where the river Dee meets the sea. Although Hoylake sprung up as a fishing town during the Victorian era, these days the town itself is primarily made up of residential areas for the retired despite it's busy night-llfe at weekends. With it's coastal location it is no surprise to see a sailing club and a still-operational lifeboat station here, as well as a thriving local rugby club, but perhaps the town's most renowned landmark is the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club. The club has, over the years, hosted many major golf tournaments including the Walker Cup (the women's Ryder Cup) and even The Open Championship has been played here; in fact, The Open is due to return to the course next year after an absence of nearly 40 years.
