The original Lincoln Golf Club was founded in Lincoln City in 1891 using the land available on the common, west of the city and moved to its present site at Torksey in 1903, where the course was designed by Open Championship winner J H Taylor.
The first season's play included a professional match between J H Taylor and another Open Championship winner James Braid, which was won by J H Taylor with a score of 75 + 74 beating James Braid's 75 + 78.
The club's championship standard course has been the venue for The English Seniors County Championship, Lincolnshire Open Championship, the Lincolnshire Amateur Championship, and the Lincolnshire Junior Championship, as well as numerous other County and Regional matches. We are pround to have been selected to hold the prestigious Reid Trophy for the year 2020.
The course has been played by many famous golfers and Mark James, of Ryder Cup (and Trekkie fame), achieved a then, course record of 65 whilst playing in the Lincolnshire Open.
It has always been this clubs intentions to provide and maintain as best a course and facilities as is possible and to be able share these with as many visitors parties/societies as possible. We hope you enjoy your time at our club.
