16 reviews of Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club
Played Lanhydrock on the 1st March and although the trees were bare, the course was a good challenge for all levels. Its a course where accuracy is a premium.
Can't wait to return in the summer to see the course in full bloom.
would recomend it to anyone.
very challenging parkland course. most of the holes here are very narrow. if i played here again i'd leave the driver in the car. accrucy is key to good scoring. food was great with fantastic service. The pro not so friendly!
day 3 of the tour 14th sept, 2 rounds, if you want value for money this is the palce to be all day on a 241 voucher 22 pound , buggy all day 30 pound,the weather wasznt great but the course stood up really well, good mixture of holes some really good some not so good,the par3 4th around 170 over a big pond that goes right up the green, you could put that hole any course and it would be a great hole,would play again all the lads enjoyed it,greens were ok bit slow but was raining, food excellent again couldnt knock 8 of us and not 1 had a bad meal,what i will say is the pro could do with a lesson in customer service,very ignorant,2 or 3 of us in pro shop signing in and he just blanked, 1 of lads said morning and he just didnt say a word back, hense we bought stuff out of most pro shops through the week but not here,so if you read this take it on board
Returned after an 8 year absence to play Lanhydrock again last week-end with a group of friends. 7 of us stayed in the hotel and played 4 rounds over the course of our visit.
It was blowing a gale for our first round on the Friday afternoon, but the weather improved over the rest of the week-end and we had a great time. Not much has changed on the course apart from some of the trees have grown a bit since our last visit!
The new hotel was very good, the service was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the lady who works in the pro shop could not have been more helpful. The food was good, and plentiful, especially the buffet breakfast!
The course was in very good condition bearing in mind the amount of rain that had apparantly fallen just prior to our visit. The greens were "ok"...I have played on faster ones but by the same token have played on much slower. They ran well and were generally in good condition. The fairways were lush, and the tees/bunkers were in great order. All in all a fantastic week-end away. We were well impressed with the set up and if it wasn't for the distance we have to travel would definitely go back again. Highly recommended if you are in the area or looking for a good value for money golfing week-end away with a few friends.
Our small society played Lanhydrock in May 2008 as part of a annual trip to the West Country. We have played it several times before, although missed it in 2007. On arrival, it was evident that a lot of money had been spent on the clubhouse, which now appears to have been extended to include a hotel. The reception area is the size of a ballroom, with the smallish pro-shop off to one side. The staff in the pro shop were helpful and informative, both in person, and when making our reservation some three months earlier. We were nervous about the course, having been told that the greens had been left ridiculously long. Happily this proved not to be the case, although they were by far the slowest of the 5 courses we played during the week. Holes are nicely laid out, and there was only a first cut of rough (no really long stuff). There are four holes where water has to be crossed, and a couple more that had ditches which I suspect would contain water following rain. On the downside, there was a fourball who appeared to be hacking their way down the first as we hit the turn, dressed in what appeared to be anoraks. Lunch was also a strange affair, and the attitude of some of the bar/restaurant staff left something to be desired. On the basis of this, it is unlikely that we will return to Lanhydrock, a shame given the friendliness of the pro shop.
Played this course in early july and it was a pleasant round nothing great but nothing bad either just nice.
The club house needs to be more cozy as it feels like it's not loved
Food was good so overal not a bad place to visit.
Lovely course with some very challenging holes.
We played the course in 2003, had a time time booked for 4.30pm and eventually teed off at 6.00pm due to slow play encountered from a corporate event which, the club informed us,had started in the late morning, we couldn't finish the last two holes due to failing light and the play in front.
If you intend to play it check to make sure there are no events out in front of you.
A nice course that was recommended to our Society. On the 2 occasions we have played there it has been in good condition and all seem to enjoy playing the course. We didn't feel as 'welcome' on our last visit but the food was as good as ever.
As an exile now residing in Cheshire with some very good courses to hand, I recently had the pleasure to play Lanhydrock for the first time. I can honestly say that, where I would normally walk of a course wanting to take one or two holes home with me, I wanted to take sixteen of Lanhydrocks holes away. (we had to miss 15 & 16 because of failing light).
I look forward to another visit home so that I can be invited back again, so thanks Jim and I am looking forward to our next round.
Lanhydrock is a lovely place to spend a long weekend. A group of friends (sometimes as many as 12) have stayed at the lodge on the first tee and have found it to be ideal. Just step out of the front door and you are ready to tee off!! Great food, a warm welcome and very good value for money. We stayed for long weekends in September for about five years on the trot, the only reason we don't go there now is the travelling involved but would still highly recommend it. The course is always in excellent condition, and while I would agree that it is not the longest course around, dont you get a little fed up with hitting career best drives and still have to collar a full blooded four iron to get to a green?? Tight in places, you have to be fairly straight off the tee, and plenty of water to keep you amused. If you are looking for a weekend away with some mates, give them a call, myself and all of my friends would higly recommend it....you wont be disappointed.
What can I say about Lanhydrock except what a superb course. I was in the West Country on holiday and tried Lanhydrock with 4 other courses. I must say that once I had played here it made it hard work for the other courses to be better, and they weren't.
If ever you are in the area, you will do yourself a big favour if you play this well laid out course with great greens. Trees to make you think, water to worry you a bit. Not a course to use the driver very much, and you don't have to. Members were friendly, as were the staff. I can't wait until I return and sample its delights again.
Very nice course, fairways and greens in v.good condition, well worth a visit, watch the water on 1st and 6th!!
Having played on a still, early July Saturday, I found Lanhydroc in great condition. Good fairways, shortish rough and excellent greens. It's short and not an exciting course by any
stretch of the imagination, just an average test and I guess that's all it's trying to be. A couple of driveable par 4's (can I have that eagle putt again please?) but only two par 5's. Very few members around for a Saturday suggest that this is an excellent society venue with large roomy clubhouse and good food.
Tight course with narrow fairways, water a feature on the first, sixth, ninth, eleventh and seventeenth holes.
Enjoyable surroundings and friendly atmosphere.
Excellent golf course, friendly staff. Try not to drive into the water on the sixth.Clubhouse food is superb
Ecellent course with good use of water hazards. All holes are very well defined. Course is in superb condition with good greens. Magnificent clubhouse with good view of 18th green, freindly staff (pro shop a bit pricey).3 of the 4 par 3's are as good as you will find.\r\nperhaps a shade pricey but I think worth it.
