With such a wealth of stunning countryside, it's hardly a surprise that the Midlands county of Lincolnshire is such a popular spot with golfers. When it comes to golfing holidays, everybody likes to do things differently. For some, it's all about touring a new area, trying out every course along the way. Other people prefer to head for a specific course, getting to know it during their stay in a local golf hotel. Lincolnshire is blessed with a diverse collection of fabulous courses and clubs, catering for the needs of every kind of golfing tourist, as well as some top quality golf hotels too.
Lincolnshire's Premier Club
Elsham Golf Club is widely considered to be among the finest places to play golf in the county. Established way back in 1900, today the Club offers a lovingly manicured course (measuring 6426 from the white tees) and a breadth of exquisite facilities.
Just as important as the course itself is the clubhouse. The clubhouse at Elsham Golf Club is impressive, capable of hosting all manner of events from weddings to private parties seating up to 120 guests. The Club's function rooms offer exquisite views across the course, making it an attractive place to host a party. The Club also houses a Pro Shop, and offers professional lessons from Stuart Brewer.
Hotels in Lincolnshire
Of course, a successful golfing trip isn't just about finding a course that's exciting to play and which suits your abilities. A large part of your trip will depend on the guesthouse or hotel in which you choose to stay. Fortunately, there's no shortage of options for golfers heading to East Midlands.
Lincolnshire is home to a wide selection of rural B&B options. The The Paddock at Scamblesby isn't too far from Elsham Golf Club, and provides all the facilities you need for a memorable stay. Langdale Lodge Bed and Breakfast offers a similar package. As the golf course is so close to the M180, it's easy to reach from just about any of the fine hotels in Lincolnshire.
