What the club says: The Royal Lytham & St Annes' layout has remained faithful to the original created by the clubs first professional, George Lowe, over a century ago. It is not a conventionally beautiful golf course, surrounded as it is by suburban housing and flanked by a railway line, but it has a charm all of its own. However it is a Links course that is a long way from the sea yet close enough for the sea breeze to have an effect on one's game

Fantastic course with Greta history

For me Royal Lytham & St Anne?s was a bucket list course to play and it did not disappoint.. An excellent experience from arrival to leaving.

Superb but not Exceptional

It is a fantastic course and everything about the place oozes quality, but there was just a little spark missing, ITS FLAT !! All of my truly favourite courses have elevation changes, and this is like Hoylake, flat, and it just makes, for me a little disappointing, well worth playing but many better courses out there that don't/won't get the praise they deserve, because maybe they are owned by a controversial figure ( or so the media say ) or they are not on the Open rota, or maybe they are tucked away somewhere, I try and play the top 100 courses, and still to this day I do wonder how they rank them, surely it should just purely about the golf course, and if so this wouldn't be number 13, but still good !!

Great course, warm welcome

August - windy day. Wind with most of the front 9. Into the breeze most of the inward 9. Course was immaculate. Greens a little slower than expected. Well worth a visit.

Amazing history and course

Driving into the car park you get a feeling of stepping back in time , and its a good feeling, The place is full of history. Like Hoylake (Royal Liverpool) the course looks smaller then it does on TV but doesn`t really play like it. Stay out of the 200+ bunkers , they are killers. The first lot of rough can be played out of but like most links golf you go into the long grass you either lose the ball or have to knock it out with a 9 iron.. Greens were true and flat. Fairways very dry and little wind when we played. Loved the experience. All the staff were fantastic and thank them for a wonderful day

Great Course with hospitality to match.

Had a weekend stay in Dormy house with golf. This was excellent value for overnight stay, meal and golf. The hospitality was great, nothing was a problem for the staff.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great course. For the money? no. If you can't hit it straight it will destroy you, as most of my society found out. The course is littered with bunkers and higher handicap golfers struggle getting out of them. The wind was in our faces on the way out and it was as tough as it gets. Personally, it's not a patch on Carnoustie.

The course was in great condition. the course proved a bit too much for me and at one stage I seemed to go from bunker to bunker and, the wind was a bit on the strong side depending which way we faced. I would not have had it any other way it was a privilege to play this magnificent course. If I'm ever lucky enough to get the chance to play here again I would not hesitate.

A top class course and a very tough test. Hard to,find any faults at all although the bunkers are extremely severe and probably unfair on many locations. Overnight in the Dormy House is a special treat.
