Played on MOnday the 25th July 2011, what a fantastic course, great welcome from all the staff, fast true greens, interesting testing holes, soft fairways, all in all a great day out was had by all.
Well done Lindrick.
played here on october 2010 for the first time. it is a superb course with fast and true greens. i used the practice green and putted my first two off the surface, wow they are fast. expensive to play (which is probably why is was almost empty when we played) but a great experience and not too punishing from the tee.
i actually dont like the last hole - i dont like uphill par threes though!
An Absoulute delight to play. Very Challenging espicially the 5 hole and the 13 .
Lightning fast greens awesome fairways and tought thick rough.
The 18 was the highlight a challeging par 3 uphill and always into wind whick measured just under 200 yards !
Huge classy clubhouse, Great food and a fantastic proshop !!
Recently played this course for the first time on the winter deal (£99/fourball). I think I was probably, like a lot of players, initially a little overawed by the clubs reputation. However, in respect of the attitude of staff/members etc., I would agree that they need to wake up to the modern world. The course itself was a delight to play and really showed how well a course can be designed to be a great challenge without relying on sheer distance which is what makes so many newer courses such a boring slog. The greens were superb and frighteningly fast but not very receptive so you quickly had to remember to play short and let the ball run to the hole.
Well worth a visit at the winter price but I wouldn't pay the full summer price.
I played this course a few times when I was a young man and found it very well maintained and interesting.Good value for money at thattime too. I played the course in march this year with a party of 24 at which time I got the impression that the club was now living on its past reputation and had lost touch with what modern golf is all about. I found the clubhouse staff surly and patronising., the bar facilities at lunchtime were unattainable (just the sort of clothing one needs just before going out to play golf)and any sort of casual lunch or a drink had to be taken in a dreary ante-room. The course was not at its best and in parts seemed quite neglected with scruffy undefined paths and a lack of yardage markers. Not too impressed with the greens either.Not at all what you would expect from a once great course On returning to the clubhouse we were herded into the same dreary anteroom where our pre-booked evening meal was a joke as we were served with what were supposed to be staple golf club diet of meat pie chips and peas. The pie crusts were completely inedible and wnen someone suggested polishing a pie crust ad having it for an annual trophy they weren't joking.The chips, and I use the word loosely, were of a similar quality, greasy, black,and soggy.This delightful fare was followed by another microwaved dish of treacle sponge on a pastry base with custard. This too had been totally decimated by the microwave and did its best to fight backwhen I pointed out to the serving staff that all of the food was inedible I got the reply "that's funny, the members always say that" I won,t ever be going back to this course but if you should feel the need anytime for a casual round take a jacket and tie, a drink and a packed lunch.That's if they,ll allow you somewhere to sit to eat it.
Our 20 strong Society played here on 28th September. Efficiently organised - we had pre ordered sandwiches before we went out and these were set out in the Ryder Cup room which avoids having to put on jacket and tie. All the Club staff were very pleasant and helpful and we set out to play the course in the early afternoon.
This was beautifully presented with immaculate tees; cross cut fairways and fast greens in wonderful condition with subtle borrows not always obvious to us who were playing the course for the first time. The bunkers are consistently good with heavy sand that enabled a controlled shot.
We all appreciated the total golfing experience that that this course provides in a high quality and timeless way. We will certainly play it again.
Needed to travel from Leeds to Sussex on Friday 1st June and broke the journey to play at Lindrick. Only ten minutes off the M1 - ideal. What a good decision too! Course was excellent. Greens were very fast and true, tees and fairways first class, bunkers well tended. Rough was penal, but not ridiculosly so. You did not necessarily lose your ball just by missing the fairway. Course sets a good challenge for low handicap players, but is also very playable for high handicappers given a degree of course management. Off the course the facilities were excellent, most friendly, helpful and courteous staff who were keen to discuss the considerable history of the club. Course planner very helpful too. Would definitely playing here.
Great course which i played in a fourball costing £99. One of the best courses i have played as it was in excellent condition and had a variety of different holes. The only downside was that i wanted to play in shorts which were ok but the pro in the shop said i had to wear these very long socks if i wanted to play in shorts and i already had fairly long white socks on. He then tried to sell me these horrible skin coloured long discusting socks. My reply was to go and get my trousers from out of the car and play in those instead.
Played this on the £99 four-ball offer, which represents just about the best value for money golf you are likely to find.
The course is built on rock and sand based land which means that drainage is excellent all year round.We played in both January and April and didn't bother with Winter rules on either occasion!
A friendly welcome in both clubhouse and pro-shop gets the day off to a good start and once you get onto the course it gets better. The tees are perfect,the fairways as good as some clubs greens and the greens themselves are immaculate and lightning fast especially when putting downslope. The layout is varied and challenging requiring you to use most of the clubs in the bag. You do have to cross the busy A57 to play 6 holes but the risk to life and limb is rewarded with the payoff of some of the best holes on the course. After crossing back( hopefully with all party members still intact) you play to the par 3 18th hole with the glorious backdrop of well stocked flowerbeds and the classic style clubhouse.
Playing here would be highly recommended at any time but taking advantage of the 4-ball deal which runs until the end of May is a must.
A great course.
Very warm welcome in the clubhouse and cost £99 as a deal for a Fourball tee time in winter.
Clubhouse is magnificent- very friendly stewardess/members and excellent Ryder Cup room for the casually dressed.
Course was superb. Well drained even in the depths of winter with quick, firm greens. Good mix of holes and particularly enjoyed the dog-leg 2nd and the downhill 4th.
Only downside is the close proximity of the busy A57 road that bisects the course after 11 holes but that is a minor annoyance.
Great course, great welcome and thoroughly enjoyable. 10 out of 10
Played Lindrick in early october 05, the greens were superb - flat, quick and true.
The fairways were lush and the ball defintiely "sat up". Bunkers were OK and the layout good - the only watchout being crossing the busy A57 - we nearly lost the old guy at the back of our fourball under a camper van (oops there goes another past captain!)
This is suppose to be a top course/club but it wasn't. The course was in poor condition and the club house had too many rules to put the visitors off. It should be a top place to visit but isn't which is a shame!
