15 reviews of The Lincolnshire
Saturday 16/11/2013, played in a group of 14 Gents.
The course was in good condition, dry, firm fairways and the Greens were in great condition.
The Greens run true and accepted a ball well from pitch shots.
The course is a good challenge, plenty of water hazards and tree lined fairways, but I would consider the course as "Golf Friendly" ... If you get in to trouble there is usually a shot you can play.
Clubhouse is small but the staff will cater for your needs if you book in advance.
There isn't a Pro shop.
All-in-all, a great day was had by us all, good value and we will be going back in the Spring
Played this course yesterday 17/03/12 for our society medal. What an excellent course this is for the money. Fairways and greens in fine form; greens have good reception but when putting are realy quick.
With a great variety of holes this course is always asking questions of you!
Club house has a comfortable atmosphere and the staff were realy friendly. Everyone enjoyed it so much we are returning in August. We can't praise the course more than that!
Well maintained, flat course with several water hazards and a good variety of holes to keep things interesting. At £22.00 on a weekend the Lincolnshire / Hirst Priory course is not going to break the bank so give it a try.
I play this course week in and week out and you will struggle to find a course in the area thats any better. The only on course problem we ever encounter is the lack / quality of sand in the bunkers and the drainage on some of the lower holes (but to be fair the drainage problem is being addressed).
The off course facilities fail to live up to the course unfortunately, the clubhouse(?) needs a radical upgrade, whats there is passable for a small golf clubs needs but is the one thing that is stopping this club from going forward. If the clubhouse was of a better standard i would have no doubt in saying this would be a top club.
It all depends on what you want from a club / course? Is it the course or the facilities? If its the course then you can't go wrong here.
Played The Lincolnshire for the first time on sunday 29th march 2009
and i am glad i played it. The tees were in good condition the fairways were spot on but the greens were a bit dissapointing as there was a lot of sand on them. We paid 32pounds for bacon buttie and coffee on arrival 18 holes of golf followed by soup and sandwhiches which i thought was reasonable. If you havent played this course before i recomend that you do . A most enjoyable day was had by all.
Played the course with our society in November ( 28 members ). As my previous note the staff welcome you from the moment you arrive, to the extent that you feel they have mistaken you for a member!!. We tend to pick the course for playing this time of year due to its excellent drainage. The weather had been poor but once again all greens were in play and the whole course was a real creditto the ground staff. Lots of evidence of their winter programme commencing which on first view will only add to the course challenge and variety.
The only point I would make, without wanting to sound snobbish is that the bar area etc is starting to look a bit tired, but this is not the main priority ( is it ? )
Would recommenend the course and still waiting for the oportunity to play in summer conditions.
Played this course again today and was made welcome from the moment we arrived. The course is in excellent condition after recent bad weather, and the green keepers have done a great job in spite of the irresponsible players who dont repair their pitchmarks. Having played here several times and not seeing this problem as severe at the other courses I play, I can only assume the members are not without blame (shame on you). Notwithstanding pichmarks greens are excellent for early March. Well done all the staff at the club.
Played the course 18/11/06 with 24 society members. The course was in excellent condition considering the horrendous weather. In fact I rang on the Saturday to see if there would be any chance of the course being closed, I think the gent at the other end of the phone was quite offended that I even asked !!!!
The staff in the clubhouse were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The course although not over long from yelow tees was a good challange with sufficient variety of holes and difficulty rating. The greens were all in play and again a good challange. Really enjoyed the course ( no I didn,t win )and have already penciled in for next year, well worth a visit.
Played this course last week and I must say I absolutely loved it. The course is really quite flat (which suits me....hate hills) but with numerous dog legged hole, still presents a challenge to any standard of golfer, especially from the back tees.
I have played many courses all around the country including many Championship Courses and I was lucky enough to play at The Grove outside Watford at the end of last year where they are holding the World Golf Championhips this year. For me this course condition was on a par (excuse the pun) if not better than many of those courses. Thats how much impressed I was !!
The greens were not too fast that they were like glass, but just right, defintely not so wooly they were really slow either. They were also consistent speeds all the way round.
One bad point though. I was playing with some local guys who knew their way round. I think if I was on my own or with another player who also had not playe dthe course before I would have definatley got lost and played some of the holes out of order !!
Can't wait to get the opportunity to go back and play it again now I know my way round !!
having found this course on the web and having played most of doncasters courses a friend and i decided to drive the 25 miles to the course and have to say it wasn't a wasted trip. Very good course & was taken aback to find we didn't have to tee up on fairways or use temporary greens in the middle of winter. Still a course which needs a few more years to develop its hole dividing as most of the trees are still young . its quite a long course im mean where else can u use a driver to tee of with on all but two holes and there over water .but once youve finished i must tell you to try the steak pie its lovley & resonably priced, so i will de be returning to this course often as its cheap for such a good course there arent nany that can match price for an enjoyable challanging round of golf.
A very forgiving 18 holes really enjoyed it.This course is in exceptional condition 2nd hole par 3 over water loved it.The greens are some of the best av played for a while.well done hirst priory c you again soon also known as (The Linconshire)
Played last wekend on a quite delightful day. For some reason took some 9 holes to really get into the round, probably due to my inerring inaccuracy. However once settled I enjoyed it. The course clearly still needs a few more years to fully mature but was well worth the adult fee...although I question in this day and age the rationale for not having concessions for juniors especially midweek. This made it a touch expensive with both sons in tow (....or rather the other way round).
I've played this course on a number of occasions and for the money it's both enjoyable and challenging. A good stomping ground for the beginner (as it is still relatively open) and a reasonable test for the intermediate. Greens are kept very well, however a number of large mounds have appeared on the majority of the fairways in an attempt to take way some of the flatness. Very friendly staff and nice clubhouse. All in all, not bad!
Played this course yesterday and I really did enjoy it. Probably because I played quite well, but it is also quite pleasant to walk round. It is pretty flat but some of the holes are interesting as you plan a way round it. It is very open as it is still a new(ish) course and there is little chance of you losing a ball too readily. Some water as well to just put some off their shots especially on a couple of the par threes and the 7th (Par 5) as you approach the green if going for it 2. I got a twilight ticket (only £6) and joined in with a member to go round. I could see that some might say it is not very challanging, but that is a matter of opinion.
I found the whole experience very pleasant the atmosphere good & welcoming.
I will be playing this course more often, hopefully to get an even better score!
I think you will find this course is now called The Lincolnshire though.
Played the course twice in recent month's and was very impressed with the layout, condition and challenge, particularly considering it has only been open 7 years. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, both individually and to our society as a whole. Indee, my Father and I are now enquiring about membership.
