I stayed in the dormy house and played the course twice with seven other friends and we loved it. The dormy house is stunning. So comfortable. Tony was excellent. Very knowledgeable and shared a lot of stories and took and interest in us. All staff were really friendly and the food was excellent. Golf course brilliant and is one of the best I have played but there are some waste land areas in the right that are untidy. It should be back on the open circuit

Have you gone cashless? We don’t all use cards when planning visits this would be an obstacle ? Please can you advise on your cash arrangement please.

Had a 3 ball here last week and the course was in top condition the greens where fast and true the fairways lovely and it was a great day.
It was unfortunately ruined by what I can only say is all the things about golf I hate
Turn up hour twenty before our tee time to get a cup of tea and maybe a sandwich only to to be told no golf shorts in club house
I asked the steward to show me where it said this on the web site or on the emails and correspondence sent and received when trying to book but he just said not his problem.
Now I have no issues with dress codes but on a hot day at the end of August surely it would worth putting on an email or the web site that golf shorts are not permitted into the bar or the club house
We paid a lot of money to play and we all said it ruined our day not being able to soak up the history of the place after our round.
The one shining star was the lady at the halfway house who smiled and laughed and made all 3 of us laugh (sausage roll Is a must ! )

After looking forward to playing this prestigious course, we were soon feeling like they did not want us there. The man at the reception informed us we could not go into the clubhouse as we all had shorts on (not mentioned on confirmation letter). We asked if we could get a drink and a sandwich and although we could we had to wait in reception like kids who werent allowed inside. When it was brought down the abrupt waitress said none have sugar or sauce put it down and walked off. Zero customer service skills there. It got the day off to a poor start. Luckily it got better the guy in the pro shop was welcoming and helpful as was the lovely lady at the half way house. The course was stunning and a challenge. We would of liked to of stayed for a drink and soak in the historic setting but this was taken from us due to the stuck in the past Club rules. All 3 of us had smart golf gear on but it was not good enough for the dinosaurs of this establishment. Would we go back? no. Paid a lot of money and were let down by the welcome and unadvertised standards. I would advise Hillside, Birkdale and Formby over RLSA.

What a great course! Caddies were very friendly as well as the women at the turn, the rest of the staff seemed a little more lukewarm with visitors but the course is a must play. Big driving range a short walk past the 18th green. Starts with a par three which is a little unusual but a nice warm up. Has some spectacular holes but a lot of bunkers. Caddie said 206. Didn’t find any on the front but said it at the turn and was hit hard on the back. Didn’t spend much time in clubhouse because I had to leave but it was gorgeous. A must play.

Huge thanks to the team at Royal Lytham
for a wonderful experience. From the superb bookings team, to the incredible food and service to one of the best tracks in the world in superb condition we had a wonderful trip. I’ve played here with family and with friends over the past 12 months and we think it is one of the best golf experiences in the world. I haven’t been fortunate enough to stay in the Dormy House yet, however I’ve heard it’s amazing, like the rest of the experience. If you are visiting do allow some time to take in the incredible clubhouse which is steeped in Golf History - it’s amazing. We found the members very welcoming and friendly. Special mention to Lauren, Elaine and Janet for all their help.

We visited as a (Covid delayed 4ball) and had the good fortune to be able to afford to stay in the Dormy House on the DBB and Golf package. If you can do the same then I strongly recommend it but in any event the course is a 'must play'. From the moment we arrived the staff were very good indeed with the stars of the show being Jordy and especially Vicki. The Dormy House experience was great and the food throughout was exceptional. The course as you would expect was very well presented and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and even with a decent stop at the halfway house we were round in 4hours 20mins.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave all staff treat you like a full member and very special visitor to a wonderful experience of service and golf course. Would highly recommend. Stayed in Dormie House , had dinner and breakfast. Even managed a game of snooker with my son. Played a fantastic golf course true links in excellent condition with some wind adding to the experience. Round in 3 hours 45 minutes, no issues about slow play. Spoke with a number of members who were very friendly and gave great advice about how to play their course which they were very proud to discuss with us. This was a 3 day trip playing Royal Birkdale, Formby and then Royal Lytham which was the highlight of the trip. Thank you.

Couldn’t fault the course but playing behind two four balls (America’s 🙄) with caddies was a bit slow.. didn’t realise that you don’t get a starter pack on the first tee.. like at, Kingsbarns, Royal Troon, Turnberry and recently Dumbarnie.. as for Covid restrictions, where? 🤷🏼‍♂️ no one seemed bothered, very lackadaisical
