    That's the wrong way round. We use "have had".

    I have a good time.
    I had a good time.
    I have had a good time.
    I had had a good time.

    Present tense - I have
    Past simple - I had
    Present perfect - I have had
    Past perfect - I had had

    I have had a great holiday (the holiday has just finished and you are talking about it right at the end).

    I have had this job for 10 years (you have been working in the same job for 10 years and you still work there).
