I played Lindrick on a calm April afternoon, after a morning round at nearby Notts. Lindrick is a classic British design, featuring several blind shots, redan greens and other features sadly missing from more modern layouts. Course conditioning was excellent, with wonderful greens (firm, with true reads). The holes were routed through varied landscape, and included a number of memorable challenges (the blind approach par five #4 and the lengthy par three #18 are examples). While I'm happy to play these uncrowded courses before the touring golfing public "wakes up" to their quality, visiting Americans are crazy to miss playing classic English layouts like Lindricks, which has hosted both the '57 Ryder Cup and the Ladies Open.
