Here at Eye on Golf we like to put forth some of the best golf photos we see every week. Photos that are too good for a tweet. Photos that capture the sport. Here's one of those.

The British Open isn't for another four months, but photos like this of Royal Liverpool Golf Club make me wish it was next week.

This course is located in northwest England, just east of the Irish Sea, and the view is just spectacular.

It's probably a bit chilly to be getting rounds in there right now (3 degrees celsius) but the temperature should match the scenery come British Open time: perfect.
