CLUB HISTORY
In July of 1891 the first ever meeting of a committee of what is now Lindrick Golf Club met to consider the formation of a Golf Club and to consider a number of potential sites. Later that month it was agreed that the course should be sited on Lindrick Common and within 3 months the course was open. The first competition was played on 9 April 1892 over 9 holes; it was won by William Jessop with a gross 74 less full handicap allowance of 45 giving a net score of 29. The original results sheet can be seen in the Billiards Room. In December of that year the Club Professional holed in one at the 130 yard 7th "using Sir W Dalrymples hammer headed club and a Slazenger ball". The Club was originally named The Sheffield and District Golf Club but this was changed in 1934 and the full name of the Club is now "Lindrick Golf Club (Sheffield and District)".

In 1894 the course was extended to 18 holes although between then and 1899 there appear to have been many modifications. The 1899 course measured 5,411 yards and had a bogey of 81. The course was extended in 1909 to 5,900 yards. The last major alteration to the course took place in 1932 and since then only the 11th 12th and 13th holes have been changed. It is of interest that the course layout prior to 1932 involved two holes which were played across the A.57.

The present Clubhouse was built in 1912 although the present Dining Room was not added on until 1938 due to the generousity of one of the members. During the Second World War the Clubhouse was requisitioned as a Maternity Home and 1021 babies were born at Lindrick.

An Artisans Club was formed in 1899 and in 1919 they were granted the use of two bays of the motor shed as a Clubhouse - a site they occupy to this day.

From its earliest days Lindrick was recognised as a Championship Course by the Yorkshire Union but it was not until 1957 that the Club achieved international recognition. In that year that the Club played host to the Ryder Cup when the Great Britain and Ireland Team turned a deficit of 3 points to 1 into a win of 71/2 to 41/2 on the final day. This was the first time that the British Team had won since 1929 and it was a victory not to be repeated until 1985 when the rest of Europe were included in the side.

After the Ryder Cup had been brought to Lindrick it was inevitable that other major events should come to Lindrick and the Curtis Cup followed in 1960 and during the 1960s and 1970s the Club hosted many professional events including the Dunlop Masters (twice), the Martini International and more recently the Weetabix Ladies British Open Championship in 1988. The Club has hosted prestigious amateur events as well including the British Youths Open Amateur Championship and in the centenary year the amateur match between England and Spain.

The course is, and always has been, a good test of golf for golfers of all standards with the fairways being pear shaped so that the poorer golfers have a wide landing area but the good golfers have to be more accurate. The greens are noted for their quality being firm and fast and very true.

The course is sited on Magnesian Limestone which provides exceeding good drainage and only snow or frost will cause the course to be closed. It occupies an area of approximately 205 acres of which 2/3 is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest which is managed in accordance with English Natures Wildlife Enhancement Scheme. In the Spring when the gorse is in bloom a plethora of wild flowers (some of which are quite rare) can be seen around the course and the colour continues throughout the Summer and into Autumn.

The course is open throughout the year playing to main greens not temporaries and off grass winter tees which shortens the course very slightly. Visitors are welcome on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and should be in possession of a current handicap certificate.

The Club is situated between the M1 Motorway and Worksop and can be easily accessed by leaving the motorway at Junction 31 when it will be found approximately 51/2 miles towards of Worksop. Bookings should be made through the Secretary who can be contacted by telephone on 01909-475282 or by fax on 01909-488685. The address for correspondence is Lindrick Golf Club, Lindrick Common, WORKSOP, Notts S81 8BH.


“The course is a golfing paradise. The turf is perfect and the green flawless.”
Jackie Burke, Captain of the defeated American Ryder Cup Team of 1957
