4 reviews of Lytham Green Drive Golf Club
Played at the end of August as part of a large visiting party.
We received a decent enough welcome from the steward and staff, and the catering on the day was decent enough without leaving you getting overly excited. The pro shop was pretty well stocked, and the lad in there again friendly enough.
Practice facilities around the clubhouse area include a chipping and putting area and a couple of nets. If you're prepared to walk a bit of a distance, you'll find some decent enough long game practice facilities.
The greens weren't the quickest, though they ran reasonably true. Rough was cut to a manageable height, and tee beds were well tended. Bunkers were varied - some seemed to have loads of sand in, some none, which was a bit frustrating to be honest. There was an awful lot of loose grass cuttings on the fairways which left the course looking a little bit scruffy in honesty - not sure if they'd had a problem with fairway cutter or not, but it was very noticable.
The course itself was a bit odd - there were some decent holes thrown in amongst, but I left thinking it was, overall, a bit unmemorable. The back 9 is more diverse than the front 9, yet there weren't any stand out holes on either. 3, 4 and 9 were pretty decent holes, as too were 13, 14 and 18 on the back 9 - the last probably being the best golfing hole in my opinion. I'd guess at the signature hole being 13 or 14, but I wouldn't like to put money on it!
It's a decent enough track without giving you the wow factor - but I think there are better courses in the vacinity for similar money.
On first impressions the Green Drive course looks superb. The club house displays all the overtones of a British Open course, the course is very well maintained and the holes are challenging. The people are also very friendly and using the 2-fore-1 golf vouchers means value for money is excellent. Holes such as number 9 and 10 are adequate for any professionals and the short par 3 15th is a cracking little hole. In summary, a great days golfing for players of all standards and well worth a visit.
A course that is certainly lucious and green. The fairways are flat and spongey - lots of grass gives plenty of confidence with the long irons. The greens are small but its a pleasure taking a wedge of the fairways. There is a tailored fringe around the greens, with all the lancashire rain, it is like a shagpile carpet - so carefull with your enevitable chip shots. It was a pleasant contrast to my usual Downlands course that is built on a chalk bed. However, it is flat and the views boring - but who cares!
Green Drive is a very pleasant, flat parkland course. I found the course to be very well maintained and although the greens were small and demanding, they were in excellent condition.
