Lytham Green Drive Golf Club

Lytham St Annes, Lancashire

Ballam Road, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 4LE, England

This club was founded in 1913 and is an easy walking, pleasant parkland course with no strenuous hills, although buggies and pull trolleys are available for hire if needed. The course is ideal for all handicaps as it is particularly testing with rewards for the more adventurous player but has allowances for shots by those more cautious. Lytham Green Drive Golf Club had the honour of being an Open qualifying course in 1974, 1979 & 1988. It is situated on the beautiful Fylde Coast in the lovely resort of Lytham in the North West of England. It is part of England's famous Golf Coast which has 20 of the most acclaimed golf courses in the country.


The golf course is a pleasant tree lined course which, although within a mile of the Irish Sea, still retains its parkland characteristics. The fairways are well defined and require an accurate drive to set up the hole. If you stray from the fairway the first cut and second cut give you a chance. If you catch the rough you will struggle to make par. The greens have an excellent reputation for running fast and true. However, they are small and well protected so an accurate approach shot is needed. Claim to fame : Lytham Green Drive Golf Course has previously been a final qualifying course for the Open Championship when held at Royal Lytham. Harry Varden, Walter Hagen and Edward Ray, who between them have eleven Open Championship wins to their name, visited the club whilst in Lytham for the 1926 Open at Royal Lytham St Annes. They quoted, "it is a pleasant parkland course and a good test of golf for most players".
