This circular walk takes you round the boundaries of the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club, which hosted the international Open Championship in 2006. In addition to this, other main features are the long walk along the beach where the dunes include some flat boulders that make useful seats (photo on the right). There are great expansive views of the Dee estuary and Hilbre Island, especially from the top of the dunes. There are no immediately exciting features except the possibly of a few scantily clad sunbathers on hot summer days. However half of the walk is along part of the Wirral Circular Trail and keen biologists may find fascinating insects and plants on the dunes. With the latter part of the walk passing very close to the clubhouse of the great golf club, this may arouse an interest in keen golfers to participate in the walk despite the long sections of urban road.

This walk is probably most suitable for older teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between, it is also excellent for dogs and okay for buggies, but wheelchairs may have difficulties with some parts. Most of the walk is either on pavements or well-trodden turf so any stout flat soled footwear will be okay. There are no refreshments or toilets on the route, but bench seats can be found throughout.
