We hope you enjoy your time with us at Lindfield Golf Club. Here are a few handy tips and course notes which should help you make the most of your round if you have never visited us before.
Hole 1, 384 yards, par 4
A straight drive will avoid the fairway bunkers left and right. There is no sand around the green, but be careful not to go long because that spells trouble, and favour the right side of the green with your approach.
Hole 2, 177 yards, par 3
Uphill, so take an extra club, particularly with the false front to the green. The very deep bunker to the left of the green should be avoided at all costs.
Hole 3, 472 yards, par 5
Downhill par 5, giving you the chance to open your shoulders off the tee. There is a chance to reach the green in two when the ground is firm, but factor in the ditch that runs across just in front and to the right of the green.
Hole 4, 326 yards, par 4
Back up the hill, with bunkers protecting the green both left and right. Take stock of where the flag is before choosing a club for your approach. The green is large and inviting but two-tiered and there is a chance of three putting should you land on the wrong level.
Hole 5, 130 yards, par 3
Uphill, but generally with the prevailing wind. The shortest short hole of the round and arguably the one which offers the best chance of birdie. The front of the green is protected by a huge horseshoe-shaped bunker and the putting surface itself is quite undulating.
Hole 6, 501 yards, par 5
Another chance to go for distance off the tee, with a par five that is reachable in two in firmer conditions and with two perfect strikes. The green is fairly flat, but there is a bunker to the right.
Hole 7, 407 yards, par 4
Stroke Index 1 for good reason, this hole is appreciably uphill and it is difficult to hit the green in regulation, especially if coming in from the right side, which is protected by a bunker.
Hole 8, 400 yards, par 4
Pay particular attention to the ditch that runs across the fairway around 30 yards from the putting surface, particularly if you are not the longest hitter from the tee. A very large bunker behind the green catches anything over-hit.
Hole 9, 215 yards, par 3
A long par three where accuracy is paramount, with a line of trees to the right of the fairway and the driving range, which is out of bounds, to the left. If the bunker front right is avoided, the green is large and inviting.
Hole 10, 315 yards, par 4
An inviting tee shot to a wide, undulating fairway. Right centre of the fairway is ideal, so you can draw the ball in well away from the greenside bunker on the left.
Hole 11, 269 yards, par 4
The easiest hole on the course offers a realistic birdie opportunity providing you do not flirt with the out of bounds on the right. It is a blind tee shot, so drive over the white marker post and choose the right club to hit the green below you.
Hole 12, 228 yards, par 3
An inviting green awaits at the bottom of the hill, until you realise this is a long par-3 and not a short par-4! Out of bounds down the right, the approach narrows appreciably close to the green as well. Three is a good score on this hole .
Hole 13, 323 yards, par 4
A sweeping dog-leg from left to right, all the trouble is down the right-hand side, so aim for the left centre of the fairway with a fade. A tree guards the right front of the green and there is a pond at the back, so be careful not to overclub.
Hole 14, 416 yards, par 4
A very long uphill par 4 that is difficult to reach in regulation and impossible if you find the traps on either side of the fairway. The bunker to the right of the green is challenging too and best avoided.
Hole 15, 484 yards, par 5
Another fine long hole offering the chance to take out the driver. The green slopes from back to front. Avoid the greenside bunker front right and you should leave yourself with a birdie putt.
Hole 16, 179 yards, par 3
Another short hole where par is a good score. The green is protected by a bunker to the left and other front right. Even if you hit the green in regulation, the putting surface is extremely undulating and can yield some awkward putts.
Hole 17, 318 yards, par 4
Nearly home. Make sure of your strike to carry the ditch that runs in front of the fairway on this uphill par 4. Take enough club to hit the green above you, which is protected by tricky bunkers left and right.
Hole 18, 413 yards, par 4
A long par 4 back towards the clubhouse. The fairway is wide and inviting, but stay clear of the driving range down the right which is out of bounds. Right centre of the fairway is the ideal spot to draw in an approach which does not have to flirt with the water hazard to the front left of the green.
