We look forward to welcoming you to Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club.

To make your experience as enjoyable as possible, we politely ask that you read the following information in advance of your visit:

On the day of your booking

On arrival, please enter either the Pro Shop or our historic Clubhouse where one of our team will be happy to assist you.

We understand that every golfer does not play to the same standard or at the same speed however we generally expect a fourball to complete 18 holes in 4-4.5hrs. Most importantly, please do not hold up players behind and allow faster groups to play through if they are waiting and you have space ahead of you.  Please replace divots, repair pitch marks and rake bunkers.
