Greens and bunkers poles apart
Greens in good order. Fairways ok at best. Bunkers dreadful. Compacted sand but more worrying large amounts of grass growing in some of the bunkers which show lack of attention.
Excellent value for money but needs sand in bunkers
Lydd Golf Course tests the average golfer from the yellow tees and the better players from the white.
Booked online for just £12 each, this par 71 course at 6623 yards from the white tees is great value for money.
The greens were in superb condition and nice and fast.
Only downside was most of the bunkers have grass growing through and very little sand.
Overall: very good & I would play again
Other than some (30%-40%) of bunkers being overhauled/GUR the course was in excellent shape... superb greens as always and tidy tee boxes. The rough was thin and wispy in places, thick in others (no complaints - I should have put it on the fairway eh?!). Drains and ponds constantly thought provoking and general layout makes you think the whole way round. Was in a rush so no time to sample hospitality in the bar post-round... quick shower and change in the acceptable changing rooms and we were off.
Excellent course, Wind was up made it a real challenge
Superb day out
This was a great day out. My wife and kids spent the day walking Alpacas so I had a spare day whilst on holiday in Kent. Lydd was great value at just £10 for 18 holes. I was not disappointed. The course was in great condition. On a windy day is quite a challenge with water hazards on at least 11 holes. I flew round in around 3 hours despite following 2 four balls who let me through without having to ask.
Overall a really enjoyable experience.
Where to start, first time playing this course and it’s in a bad state,
Greens: so many holes unrepaired, divots and holes just left making putting impossible, possible 2-3 good greens out the 18 holes
Tee boxes: More like teeing off from the rough, holes, divots and bald, very poor conditions and no sand to help repair boxes
Bunkers: either solid compacted sand, waterlogged or full of plants growing in them or no sand at all very poor!
Fairways: heavy underfoot and again a lot of divots,
All in all disappointed in the fact the price does not represent the course
Great price for xmas outing
Very busy but not much waiting on tees. Bunkers in poor condition with grass growing through the sand. Greens were generally good for the time of year. Bargain for the price paid.
Greens, fairways and bunkers in great contrition. Testing course which makes you choose your club carefully, I didn’t, and very enjoyable. Defiantly going back
A good challenging course
Given the very dry conditions the course was in pretty good shape. More attention needs to be paid to the bunkers but for the price very good value. For the average golfer I was pleased to see that the rough had been cut back a little.
Always a pleasure
The Lydd course and the infrastructure always makes for a good day. Go off many of the fairways and lost balls are frequent, especially into the water channels . The fairway are accommodating and the greens were in very decent condition. Will be back again
A very welcoming course not too long and a great test for all Handicaps.
Nice clubhouse with friendly staff and members.
Great course, friendly and very helpful staff. Love playing here
Not bad value for money.
Managed to get a 'hot deal' tee this morning for £13, which wasn't bad value for money. The course layout is good with some tough little par 3's and some challenging 4s. However i was disappointed with the condition of the course. The fairway grass was quite long, none of the bunkers seemed to have been raked for weeks, and the greens were particularly poor, with the ball bobbling all over the place. A shame really as it let the course down. Good value for money if you want a cheap round, but nothing more.
I would recommend
Shame on the day we played that there was an issue with Clover on the fairways, normally this is a cracking links course. I will definitely being playing there many times.
Course was in average condition with very little sand in the bunkers.Easy to get around.Greens had been hollowtined.
Cost at course £30.00
Cost online £15.00
£15.00 is the top price I would pay for this course.
Would play again.
A Hidden Gem!
This Links course is well worth a visit! Just £18 on a Sunday. Weather was very favourable.... not a breath of wind and clear blue skies. Greens were in amazing condition after a week of rain and no temporary's!! (actually quite fast) It was brilliantly laid out and very easy to get from green to tee box on every hole. Lovely scenery, wildlife and Lydd airport close by. I would highly recommend this course. There is a lot of lakes on the course so club selection is critical! The only let down was the chef had finished serving food at 3pm on a Sunday.
I found the course to be in good condition & with the strong wet winds this made it quite challenging. There were some really good holes that were really enjoyable to play. The £10 weekend offer was excellent value!
The driving range was good. The staff in the clubhouse & pro shop were not the friendliest & was disappointed that the bar closed early on a bank holiday weekend, so we couldn't grab a pint after our round.
Good Course to play
Good course to play with water left and right almost everywhere. Greens are fairly fast but a bit mossy, they may well suffer damage in the coming months. Pro very friendly and helpful, bar staff good too.
