The 2017 tour sees the society make a re-visit to Lytham to play three superb links courses at Fleetwood,
St Annes Old Links and Fairhaven with accommodation at The Glendower Hotel in Lytham St Annes.

As usual, we will split into two teams and play a ‘Ryder Cup’ style match.


Our package with the hotel is for three nights accommodation, so once again the cost this year also includes the additional extra night’s bed and breakfast accommodation.

32 places available
£350 all inclusive in a twin room
£395 all inclusive in a single room (18 available only)

Single rooms will be allocated on 'first-come first-served' basis on receipt of a £60 deposit.

It is expected that all players are to play in all the matches. Anyone wanting to play only 18 holes per day should ideally find someone else who is also willing to do this before signing-up to this trip.

Please note that handicap certificates may be required and a club may refuse you access to the course without one. If you don’t have a club handicap, you should try to get a certificate from another source (we do have some out-of-date ‘spares’ that could be used - although we cannot guarantee these will be accepted). Most courses we play do insist on handicap certificates, although we’ve never actually been asked to produce these. However, I’m giving you all warning just in case a club decides to be really strict.

Those who have secured places can be seen further down the page.

Fleetwood Golf Club
Fleetwood Golf Club

Fleetwood Golf Club

Princes Way, Fleetwood FY7 8AF
12 miles and approx 35 minutes from the hotel

Opened in 1932 and designed by James Steer, Fleetwood Golf Course is a typical links course playing the back 9 inside the front 9 and situated next to the sea. The course is a definite must for keen golfers and for those willing to sample something other than an ordinary run-of-the-mill inland course. Fleetwood offers a challenge with prevailing winds being a major factor on how the course plays from day to day. It is a dry, long course with large greens and bunkers seemingly everywhere.

St Annes Old Links Golf Club
St Annes Old Links Golf Club

St Annes Old Links Golf Club

Highbury Road East, Lytham St Annes FY8 2LD
1 mile and approx 3 minutes from the hotel

Founded in 1901, the stunning Championship links course that lurks behind the doors of St. Anne’s Old Links Golf Club is a fantastic and famed venue where you can enjoy a fantastic, challenging and unique golfing experience. A testament to its brilliance is its ability to hold its own in a region which boasts Open Championship venues including Royal Birkdale and Royal Lytham St. Annes. James Herd laid out the designs for it well over a century ago, a stunning, exceptionally challenging course, it really is an honour to be able to say you have played it.

Fairhaven Golf Club
Fairhaven Golf Club

Fairhaven Golf Club

Oakwood Avenue, Lytham St Annes FY8 4JU 
3 miles and approx 10 minutes from the hotel

The course is an unusual blend of links and parkland which is relatively flat. This makes it not too strenuous to walk around and allows complete vision of each hole from tee to green. What you will see are fairways that are generously wide but with plenty of difficulty for wayward shots in the hills and hollows which border the fairways on most holes. Fairhaven is famous for its deep rivetted bunkers and there are plenty of them to give the golfer food for thought from both the tee and the fairway. This course, an Open Championship qualifier when the Open comes to nearby Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, is situated in the heart of Lytham St. Annes. The golf course was partly laid down by the great James Braid, a former winner of the Claret Jug and respected golf course architect.
