This was my first visit to Lindrick and although I was aware of its history (Hosting the 1957 Ryder Cup and the 1932 Curtis Cup) I knew little about the course itself. The course is a joy to play with a mixture of left to right and right to left doglegs Lindrick tests your course management from the tee. It also has some great elevation changes such a the downhill second shot to hole 4 and the approach shot uphill to hole 13. The par threes are no pushover either with small raised greens which are well protected by bunkers and run off areas. Lindrick’s greens have some nice movement through them and although when I played they were not at their best they still rolled at a decent pace. As with many courses this year Lindrick’s fairways have suffered but I am sure with a little luck with the weather they will soon recover. If you want to play a classic heathland course Lindrick would be a great place to spend a day.
