This was our 3rd of 3 rounds while visiting England for The Open Championship, and it was quite an enjoyable experience. Quite enjoyed the fact that the green fee included a meal, and everyone we dealt with was very friendly and helpful. After having a...More

A British Open venue, this place was one of the reasons why I flew half way across the globe to visit this area. To play golf! A quirky course, and quite difficult in the wind, the bunkers killed my game. Nevertheless, a lunch was included...More

Visited Royal Lytham with a large group of golfers last weekend. The club failed to let us know that 99% of the 200+ bunkers were filled with water and unplayable. The visitor experience was not anywhere near as welcoming as that of Kingsbarns, Trump Aberdeen,...More
