Lytham Green Drive Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Lytham Green Drive Golf Club Est. 1913

Where2Golf says: 

Lytham Green Drive Golf Club: Originally known as the Green Drive Golf Club, this course certainly represents a departure from the typical links layouts predominantly found in Lytham St Annes. Here is a parkland course, where avenues of trees line many of the fairways, while smaller than average greens put a premium on accurate approach play.

The relatively flat terrain is home to good-width fairways and modest bunkering, suggesting the possibility of carding a good score; just be aware that water ditches and OB do intrude on about half the holes. Arguably the best hole is the 18th, one of only two par-5s on this par-70 layout, and a hole which contains some of the best bunkering. The signature hole is the long par-4 14th (Devil's Elbow), which dog-legs from left to right and requires water ditches to be crossed twice before reaching the postage-stamp green. A pleasant golf course that nicely complements the sterner challenges to be found in Lytham St Annes.
