Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

A super links in an uninspiring location, it builds to its sensational last five holes. Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club is a real golfers’ golf course that simply can’t be overpowered despite being the shortest golf course on the Open rota. Even Tiger Woods has struggled to tame Lytham! At first glance you wonder how it can stage an Open – but it does and it does it impressively. It’s always in tip-top condition, very welcoming and boasting excellent practice facilities.

    Nothing I can say can do this course justice. You must play this before you die. Awesome. The biggest challenge and home of the greats.

    Played & stayed at Royal Lytham this is a must. Stopped in the Dormy House which was Great, played the course which was also Great. As you can see on my ratings top marks across the board. Service on and off the course was superb, if you stay and play you must stop in tha Dormy this is value for money. This is a true test of Golf as it sould be, Greens are the best i have played on true and fast. 10/10 thank you.
