Throughout 2017 Lingdale Golf Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a number of special Anniversary celebrations.
These included a Back In Time event whereby current and past members got to play the golf course in its original nine hole layout. Next up was a special Anniversary Weekend Members competition whereby all members had the opportunity to win £500 off of their 2018 subscriptions.
The main event of the year was a 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner which was attended by 176 members and guests, this took place in the clubhouse and a special marquee which was fitted to the side of the clubhouse.
The final Anniversary event was a 50th Anniversary Shotgun Open, this proved so popular that an afternoon event was also added in meaning that for the first time in Lingdale history a double shotgun start competition took place.
As well as these events the Golf Club also hosted a number of important County and Midlands competition. These included the Midland Golf Union Seniors Autumn meeting, the Midland Queen of Clubs and also the SLRGC four counties competition which a Leicestershire and Rutland team which included a number of Lingdale members won.
As well as this a book entitled The Anniversary Book has been written by author and member Phil Fricker and is available at a cost of £14.95. The book makes a fascinating read and if you are interested in purchasing a copy, please contact the Club Manager on 01509 890703.
Thank you to everybody who has supported these events throughout the year and made it a year for us all to remember.
