Golf outing at Lydd

We had all played Lydd before but were also agreed that it would be a pleasure to play it again. When so many courses have suffered badly with the weather Lydd was our first choice and was in excellent condition. The greens were smooth and true and the layout is a good test of golf at all levels. An enjoyable day which we hoped to repeat !

Excellent day at Lydd

We arrived 20 minutes before our scheduled tee time which was just right to get our clubs out and shoes on. The course was dry and the greens smooth and quick. Very enjoyable round at an easy pace with the 18 holes taking Just 3 hours 15 minutes ! Great day which we will certainly revisit.

Trip to Lydd

With our own course shut due to the continual rainfall we were recommended to Lydd by a club member. Our experience was a real surprise, as the course was remarkably dry underfoot and the greens in superb shape. We would definitely visit again as the winter sunshine combined with the course accessibility is an attractive package and is excellent value for money.

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

Thoroughly enjoyable

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.

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.

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.
