LINDRICK GOLF 2ND BRITISH ‘HONOURABLE MEMBER’ OF WLG
Pristine former Ryder Cup venue proud to join the association
The 126-year-old former Ryder Cup venue Lindrick Golf Club, located in south Yorkshire, joins Celtic Manor as the inaugural ‘honourable members’ of World of Leading Golf in the UK.
Lindrick is a historic members’ club and is one of Britain’s finest inland golf courses, consistently ranked in the country’s top 100 listings. A mixture of heathland and moorland, with a reputation for very fast, true greens and outstanding playing conditions all year round, Lindrick hosted the sport’s premier biennial team tournament in 1957, when GB&I beat the USA 7½-4½ – the first time the host nation had won in 24 years.
Julian Maturi, chairman of Lindrick’s marketing committee, said: “We are extremely proud to have become a member of WLG. We are sure that the underlying philosophy of the organisation and the member clubs – which requires the highest levels of service, quality and excellence within the world of golf – will fit perfectly with the long-standing culture and traditions of Lindrick Golf Club and our members.”
