“Great Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

With Royal Lytham G.C. just up the coast and host to the British Open, you may think this is a second choice, but don't be mislead by that, this is a first class "Links Course" with superb greens that come very close to it's neighbor. Both challenging and yet not too difficult to the average golfer provided the wind keeps calm, although this keeps the course dry where other courses have closed due to the wet the Old Links holds up well. As you would expect the clubhouse offers good facilities, showers, locker room, and a good bar with food available, I have played the course twice and thoroughly enjoyed it and not as expensive as it's "Royal" cousin.

“A good links course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Not a pretty course and the noise from the airport is annoying but still a good test of golf in nice condition.

“Links at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Fantastic course to play. Very challenging with beautiful scenery. It is a very open course but very narrow fairways and once you get the rough it is difficult to get out.
