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.

Poor Conditions

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.

Great tester

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

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.

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.

Windy weather
Walked

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.

Good test

First time playing this course and was attracted by the good offer on price and tee time. This is a good test and the layout in windy conditions certainly caused both my playing partner and I some difficulties at times. Looking forward to returning with some experience and giving it another go.
