In 1966 Course Architect David Tucker purchased 60 acres of land in the Charnwood Forest and by 1967 the original 9-hole course was in play.
Later that year, ownership passed to Brush Engineering of Loughborough who continued to develop the course over the next 14 years.
In 1982 Lingdale Golf Club members purchased the club and in the late 1980's expanded it successfully to 18 holes with the acquisition of additional land.
October 1999 saw the start of a major greens renewal programme and within a remarkably short space of time, all 18 greens were reconstructed to the USGA specification. They have now matured into excellent condition and provide year-round play.
In the summer of 2006, the new clubhouse and professional shop were opened and both now provide modern facilities for a maturing golf club.
A book entitled The History of Lingdale Golf Club has been written by author and member Phil Fricker and is available at a cost of £10. The book makes a fascinating read and if you are interested in purchasing a copy, please contact the Club Manager on 01509 890703.
