Nothing special.

First time playing this. 3 of the greens were bumpy and diseased. We had a group of 6 in front of us who did let us play through but why 6 of them? Saw numeous youths in hoodies playing.. bit rough.

Good day at the beach spoiled by a round of golf.

My initial review of this course mentioned the mammoth bunkers on some of the holes and today they were (in places) waterlogged, evidently down to the level of the water table rather than rain.

Great day out for golf, the course was busy yet kept to a steady pace and a round was just over 4 hours.

Greens were in great condition if somewhat slow. Fairways were good but I expect that to change quickly once they get abused and people don't replace divots. (or sort pitch marks out)

Can't comment on facilities due to being closed still.

Lydd golf

Played in January. Only playable course in the area given the rain we have had the course is in very good condition with only the bunkers watered logged. Greens also very good. Often windy next to the coast and today no exception. A lot of water hazards together with the wind mean you have to be quite accurate otherwise your have a bad day. Overall good challenging course that is playable all year in a very nice part of the country.

Pleasant and challenging course

Course was well laid out and had a good balance to it. Lots of water, mainly down the left hand side of holes made it challenging. Unfortunately the weather was pretty awful when we played (high winds and some heavy rain). Course greens and fairways were in good condition. Bunkers flooded and some parts of the rough saturated.
Would definitely return, and hopefully play in better weather!

A lovely marsh course

Despite the weather being unhelpful - very windy and a number of heavy down pours, I enjoyed the course. Low lying and flat with a number of water obstacles, the course is a good test of accuracy of shot and control. The greens were in excellent condition.
Will definitely play again.

Great Links

Really enjoy Lydd over playing a lot of local courses.
A real test with wind as well makes it more interesting and enjoyable.
Excellent value for money especially in such hard times financially for most.
If I had just one complaint it would be the greens and bunkers.
Greens are a bit bumpy and bunkers are poor In Terms of quality of sand.
Other than that I absolutely love this course and usually play well.
Still no birdies but I’ll keep trying.
On the plus side lots of pars but two double bogeys.

Great value

Play here with a group of 8, who play twice a month at various courses. This place is a little gem £22 each when booking online. Course is difficult if windy but today was great. Given the time of year and the rain over the past month the course was in good nick, although work was being done on some tees. Nice bar for beer afterwards as well. Our party know we will be back soon.

A gem of a course

Lydd is a fantastic course. Challenging with many water hazards and well-designed holes. Not easy to score well as most wayward shots are punished with several par 4 holes playing long. Described as an inland links course, and although it is not true links, it's a fair description. Lydd has a good range and catering facilities too. Amazing value and under £25.

Not for high handicappers

This is a very flat course which I thought would make it relatively easy after heavy rain but no! Nothing to do with the rain but more to do with the random water hazards that scatter the course. The par-4's were almost identical: dogleg, water and random bunkers. The design should be more imaginitative, the same gores for the par-3's.

The greens were inconsistent, some in perfect condition but others very poor. It made putting accurately impossible.. Not surprisingly being limks the roughs were unforgiving, no complaint about that.

The staff were fantastic, they met all of the Covid rules and the snacks excellent.

Take loads of balls, you'll need them.
