Read what our members and visitors have to say about Lincoln Golf Club
Good afternoon, Craig
Many thanks for forwarding the Seniors Open Results and for laying on a most enjoyable day. We always look forward to our visit to Torksey and this year was, in every respect, well up to the ususal standard. I'd be greatful if you would pass on our thanks to all concerned for their efforts; as usual, the course was in excellent condition, the meal was great and everybody we met made us feel very welcome. We particularly appreciated that you took the trouble to chat with each of the groups after they had played.

On behalf of myself and my fellow 15 golfers many thanks to you and all your staff for a wonderful breakfast and thoroughly enjoyable round of golf.
We will definitely return to sample all the delights again.
Yours; The Curry Cup GS 24th March 2017
Carol and Craig,
Huge thank you to you both for a cracking day at your club.
The course was in a brilliant condition and the breakfast cobs were excellent. Very friendly staff and members, that made us feel extremely welcome. The gift golf balls were also a very nice touch and went down a treat with the winning team.
I would definitely recommend your course and plan to return with the society, maybe in the late summer if I can squeeze it in the calendar.
Excellent day all around, thanks again
JM 17th March 2017

A wonderful friendly Club - congratulations.
Thank you again

Please thank all those involved for their hard work in looking after us and in particular the steward and his kitchen and serving team for the catering which maintains the very highest of standards.

"On behalf of Tile Giant and Anthony Nolan, I would like to thank you and the members of Lincoln Golf Club for hosting the Tile Giant Charity Golf Day in aid of Anthony Nolan on Friday 23 September 2016.
The event was very well supported and there were some excellent results.
Please pass on our gratitude to the green staff for all the hard work they put in preparing the course before the event and supporting me on the day. Our thanks also go to the catering staff for the food and great service and to you Craig, your office and the pro shop for all the help in making the fundraiser an enjoyable event.
A very big thank you to David and Penny who helped with registering all 40+ players. The facilities you made available to us were greatly appreciated by the players and meant that the event ran smoothly and was a great success. This was in no small way due to the warm welcome and cooperation we received from you, your staff and the members at Lincoln Golf Club.
I hope that the event was successful from your point of view and that you will permit us to use your course again at a future date."
PK, Tile Giant, 26th September 2016

Torksey come up trumps again! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to your Club yesterday.
From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff were superb. Please will you convey our thanks to everyone involved.
The Course played extremely well. Shame the same could not be said of a lot of the people who played it! The meal and waitressing were second to none.
I hope our Captain for next year decides to return to Torksey. There will be a lot of our members who hope the same.
SF, Secretary RGGS 3rd September 2016
Everyone thought it was brilliant and we were extremley well looked after.

Yours in sport,
GP Doncater Town Moor GC, 1st August 2016
Organising a Charity Golf Day is a great way to both raise money for a worthy cause as well as to engage with your business acquaintances, customer and clients. its success though depends on making sure you’ve covered all bases.
Certainly for us Lincoln Golf Club , its Manager and team are great in ensuring you’ve not missed anything from registering for 1st team, through to the prize presentation and players meal.
The Club’s excellent setting and friendly atmosphere make it special for all those that participate be they players or organisers.
JP, Marketing Partner, Streets Accountants 28th July 2016
On behalf of the Little Imps and myself I wish to thank you, captain and the committee for allowing us to play our competition at Lincoln Golf Club.
Everyone at the club was most accommodating, the clubhouse staff, Julie in the pro shop and yourself. The course was in excellent condition and proved to be a stern but fair test for the boys and girls. It was plain to see how much they enjoyed the experience.
The club members who were present on the day made us feel very welcome and very much at home.
Thank you again.
TI, 26th July 2016
Good morning Craig,
Many thanks for the most wonderful day you all gave us yesterday. To a man everyone said how very impressed they were with the course and how you all made us so very welcome. It comes, of course,as no surprise to me that this was their thoughts. As you know if I lived closer to Torksey I would be a member without hesitation as it is without a doubt one of my favourite courses to play. I feel I now know every blade of grass and every borrow on the greens, and I'm sure I could nearly play it blind folded.
Once again our sincere thanks for letting us use all of your facilities, and I can't wait for next year when I will be able to play again.
DT, Captain Spalding GC 23rd July 2016
It was certainly hot today but we very much enjoyed our visit!
The course is extremely good and hospitality second to none!
We will be returning for your Ladies Am-Am shortly so may get chance to see you then but I will make sure Sarah, my Vice-Captain , has your mail details to liaise with you directly.
Thank you again
MP 19th July 2016
Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for making our recent visit a memorable one. We have to compliment your green staff on the excellence of the course and in particular the greens, which were speedy yet true, it was a pleasure to play on them.
We would like to thank the catering staff for the service they provided whilst we were there.
On behalf of myself and the Club we wish you all the best for the rest of the year and the future. I know that a number of our party were looking to returning to possibly play in your Open events.
Regards, MA, Captain Horsforth Golf Club 14th July 2016
Thank you for your recent E - mail and it was a pleasure to meet you on Monday.
We had an excellent day and the course was in superb condition
As always the hospitality was second to none and I'm sure our group will return
KY, 13th July 2016
Thank you for your email.
Firstly, congratulations on organising an excellent event again. I visited last year and the guys I brought with me this year all agreed it was well worth the journey.
Could you convey our thanks to your starter, course helpers and excellent halfway house - lovely cakes! The pace of play was fantastic, quite often in Open competitions one experiences longer rounds, I recently endured 3 days of 5 hour plus rounds in the Heathland Classic, it becomes tortuous!
The course was in stunning condition, particularly considering the heavy rainfall, you are so fortunate to have free draining soil, we are built on clay at Cosby and the difference is quite marked, but it still takes a huge amount of work, so well done to your Greens Team.
I am sure we will return next year, and possibly even for some Senior events.
AS, 17th June 2016
Just a quick note on behalf of Andrew and myself, to say many thanks for a lovely afternoon last Monday.
I knew the course was good, but didn’t realise it would be that good and in such magnificent condition.
Congratulations to you and your staff, on a job well done.
Andrew commented, that he would love to be playing on greens like that every week!
Look forward to catching up with you soon.
Best Regards, KB 16th June 2016
Just a thank you for hosting our annual day out on Friday. All were very complementary about the presentation of the golf course, something that we have become accustomed to. Thanks to Ashley in the Pro shop for making us welcome and helping to organise the day.
The catering was again first class, complements to Lee and Sam and all the staff for making us welcome and providing us with excellent service.
Look forward to hopefully doing it all again next year, will be in touch.
Kind Regards, SF 11th June 2016
Just a brief note to say we played your course yesterday, and once again thoroughly enjoyed our day. The course was in excellent condition and the weather was perfect.
Please pass on our thanks to the staff who looked after us both in the Pro shop and particularly in the Clubhouse.
Once again, thank you for supporting St Neots GC Charity Am Am, and trust you have a great week next week celebrating your 125th. You are 1 year behind St Neots!

DH, NFU G.S. 13th May 2016
I would just like to thank you and your team for yesterday when our Juniors played against your team. The course was in great condition and Joan, Ashley and David made us feel most welcome. Three of us were kindly allowed to play and follow the Juniors on the course which was very generous and much appreciated. We will of course be pleased to reciprocate when you come to Elsham.
TH, Elsham Golf Club
Another very enjoyable day- we will certainly want to continue with our annual visit.
Is it too early to pencil in the corresponding date next year?
CD, Notts Scots G.S. 9th May 2016
Good afternoon, Craig
Many thanks for sending the results of Friday’s Seniors Open. The whole event was a credit to you all at Lincoln Golf Club. We thoroughly enjoyed our day; the course was in great condition and the volunteers and staff were friendly and helpful. The chef and kitchen staff obviously enjoy their work and provided a first class meal.
We always look forward to our visit to Torksey and, needless to say, we were delighted to be in the prizes.
We hope to see you again next year.
TB 25th April 2016
On behalf of our team we would sincerely like to thank you and your staff for a truly excellent day, from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome by the professional attitude of your team.
The course was in superb condition, (the greens did catch us out with the speed and condition - lol something we are not accustom to), our starter was excellent - his explanation of the course and competition rules was commendable), the food and service from the staff was exemplary and a credit to your club.
Would you please pass on our gratitude to the club Captain and everyone concerned with making the day so enjoyable.
Once again thank you.
DL, Styrrup Hall GC, 25th April 2016
Please say a big thank you to all of your staff and thank you to you for your hospitality and generosity

The course was in great condition, pass our compliments onto the green staff.

Look forward to meeting you soon.
DW 17th December 2015
On behalf of PSand myself can I thank you for an excellent day yet again at Torksey golf club. The day was seamless, the weather tip top and organisation and catering second to none!
Unfortunately our golf was substandard but it will only spur us on to greater things next time.
Thank you and the club for your hospitality and God willing we shall return again next year to pick up the challenge.
Best wishes and a very Merry Christmas,
Phil and Steve 25th November 2015
I just wanted to send thanks to you for our visit on 23rd October.
Prior to playing both you and Carol in the office have always given excellent service on the telephone and were a pleasure to talk to at all times. Thank you for all your help.
The same goes for Ashley in the pro shop.
What a great day we had. Again all staff were brilliant, both in the kitchen and the bar. We had coffee and bacon before golf and a lovely meal afterwards.
The course is excellent and is a credit to the green keeping staff. Some of our members have played across the world this year on many different courses and everyone said that your greens were some of the best they had played on this year, particularly for October, they were superb.
Thank you all for a great day all staff are a credit to Lincoln Golf Club.
(We would love to come back in the future if you will have us).
DC, EGS 26th October 2015

Many, many thanks for looking after us yesterday. We had a fantastic day out.
The course was in mint condition and the greens the best we've probably ever played on.
The hospitality of all your staff was superb, and your recommendation to go for the steak pie was well justified!
I do hope next year's captain decides to return to Torksey.
SF, Captain RGGS 3rd October 2015
On behalf of Saxilby Golf Society i would like to take this opportunity in thanking everyone connected with Lincoln Golf Club our appreciation for hosting a number of events during 2015.
From our Society days which included the John Armstrong Memorial Trophy. John was a member of the Golf Club to yesterdays Surprise 80th birthday. The welcome our Members receive is second to none.
The team you have at Lincoln is well appreciated. If you can pass on out thanks to Adrian,Russ,Andy,Carl and Arron who keep the course in magnificent condition. Lee,Sam,Chloe and Jane for serving our needs, The food is first class and i have visited many places this year that have mentioned this to me. To Ashley,Julie and David who greet everyone with a smile and can't do enough for you. Finally Carol and your good self whose co-operation and help in getting the days sorted and the administration behind the scenes does not go unnoticed.
I know many of our Members are Lincoln Golf Club Members but for the others it is a venue they most look forward to playing. At yesterdays 80th birthday many of the visitors were from other clubs in the County and were all in praise of the welcome the condition of the course and the breakfast served prior to golf.
This reflects well for the club and no doubt they will go back to there clubs and spread the word that you must go to Lincoln Golf Club.
Once again many thanks to one and all and wish everyone at Lincoln Golf Club all the best for the remainder of 2015.
KH, Saxilby GS 2nd October 2015

This was the first time my wife and myself have completed in an open together and the prize was a bonus in itself.

The golf course was a joy to play on and your catering was, as is widely known, "top notch "
Many thanks indeed and we both look forward to revisiting Torksey.

Thanks Craig to you and all your staff at the Lincoln golf club.
Once again the course was in fabulous condition and was a pleasure to play.
Many thanks to the catering staff for our wonderful food - everybody commented on the whale and chips we had for lunch.
I'm already looking forward to coming back to take advantage of your fantastic winter golf deal.
LB 7th July 2015
The course was in excellent condition and the hospitality and courtesy of the people working there from the caterers, green keepers, and pro’s shop was much appreciated by our members.
I know it’s been thirteen years since our last visit, but I am sure it will be much less next time.
Once again many thanks to you for arranging details at your end making my job that much easier at mine.
JC 30th June 2015
We had a great day, thanks ! The course was, as ever in great condition ( greens were excellent ) ! The food was great, and the man upstairs looked after us with the weather as well !

Moreover, please pass on my thanks to all those involved including the membership who are inconvenienced by our presence – their support of the RAF is much appreciated.
We really hope you will continue to host our events as Lincoln GC has been a great venue and host for us over many years.
JP, RAF Waddington 18th June 2015
We all enjoyed our day very much. The course was in its' usual great condition and the catering and hospitality were first class.
We always enjoy our visits to Lincoln Golf Club.
KB, 16th June 2015
I must thank your club for accommodating the England Golf Captains’ event so well yesterday.
It was clear all your staff laboured hard to make the day a success.
Specific examples were the young waitress who served many self-opinionated officials from visiting golf clubs with charm and enthusiasm to the end.
Not charging for a pot of tea ordered at the bar was also simple evidence of superb customer service.
Well done Torksey – you were a super host!
NC 16th May 2015
This is not an enquiry but a big thank you for one of the best golfing days out we have had!! (4/5/15) we were 4 couples from harrogate golf club playing with 4 couples from your club,
The friendliness from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was fantastic!
Everything was brilliant, the golf course was fantastic (greens staff deserve the credit for this) food amazing (please pass on our thanks to the catering and bar staff, it was absolutely perfect and plentiful!!), the company we had to play golf with were lovely, we look forward to our chance to host a return game but you have set the bar very high and hope we can do you justice, please pass on our comment to the relevant staff, they are a credit to your club!!
E&DE Harrogate GC 5th May 2015
Firstly, many thanks from the four of us to Lincoln GC for once again putting on a superb day (on Friday 24th April) . From when we arrive to when we leave everything runs like clock work, Bacon Roll and coffee wonderful, course brilliant, food magnificent. We look forward to seeing you again at the end of the year.
Very Best Wishes
D.T. 26th April 2015
Could I take the opportunity on behalf of both my team and the other two teams from Peterborough Milton to thank you for an excellent day. The course was very well presented and we all agreed the buffet was outstanding - we also all felt extremely welcome and all of the organising team and club staff were so friendly - an excellent advertisement for your Club. We sincerely hope to be back next year.
CG, 25th April 2015

GT 27th March 2015
Just a note to thank your staff and yourself for arranging our awayday today. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day - course in wonderful condition and excellent hospitality and......the sun shone this time!
MC March 2015
I would just like to thank your golf club for the way you treated us today.
We are visiting you again in May with our golf society...Admiral Rodney (Calverton).
Even though it was cold and windy today the four of us thought that the course was superb.
From the moment we arrived and greeted by the lady in the pro shop - to the wonderful food in the club house.
It was a great day and we cannot wait for May and hopefully warmer weather.
CM March 2015
Having spent a great day at your lovely Club I felt that I needed to drop you a line.
I have visited countless Clubs over the years and most recently with my Golf mad 12 year old son Sam and have to say that Lincoln Golf Club is quite probably the most friendly Club I have ever visited.
Every person we spoke to from the Chef this morning serving us our sandwich, to the delightful Ladies on the registration desk, John on the first tee, the team in the Half way house and the staff in the Clubhouse, all had a smile on their face and clearly had a passion for what they were doing.
Unfortunately we come across some prejudice in Junior Golf and have had some uncomfortable visits to other clubs in the past, Lincoln could not have been more different.
Most people only seen to make an effort to write when they have a complaint, I feel it's only right to write also if you have had a good experience.
Please can you pass on our thanks to all involved today and also to the greens staff for the condition of the course.
We look forward to returning for the next Junior Open at the end of March.
Thanks again for a cracking day,
GM 1st March 2015
