Lindrick Golf Club
Lindrick Golf Club is one of Britain’s finest inland golf courses, providing an excellent challenge to golfers of all abilities at any time of the year. The course, which is always in first class condition, is a mixture of heathland and moorland meaning you will find silver birch and gorse lining the fairways of our picturesque golf course. It is also a location of Special Scientific Interest (SSI) which recognises the course as containing some unusual and rare examples of the UK’s flora and fauna.
Lindrick has a place in history too, as one of an elite number of golf courses to have staged the Ryder Cup. It was here that Great Britain defeated the USA to win the Ryder Cup in 1957, the first time they had achieved it in 24 years. Our structure and ethos as a Member’s Club is an important part of the balance we maintain between the traditions of the past and the expectations of golfing in the twenty-first century.
Lindrick is foremost a members’ club with a rich history, attracting its membership not just from the immediate locality of Worksop but also from North Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. The club also has long established links with Sheffield reflecting the fact that it began life over 120 years ago as the Sheffield & District Golf Club.
The Early Days
In July 1891, the first ever meeting of what is now the Lindrick Golf Club committee took place in Sheffield 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 three months the 9 hole course was open.
The first competition was played on 9 April, 1892, over 9 holes. It was won by William Jessop with a gross score of 74, less full handicap allowance of 45, giving a net score of 29.
There were a number of course developments during the first 40 years and by the mid-1930s the course was essentially set up as the one which we use today.
The course established a high reputation in the early years of the 20th century. The renowned course architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie stated that at that time Lindrick was the best inland course in Britain and the equal of the best seaside links
