If you don't at first recognise the name Hinckley Golf
Club, it may be because up until 1983 it had been called Burbage
Green Golf Club. Since then, however, it has been known under
its new title and has become even more popular and successful.
Originally, the course was opened in 1894, making it one of the
oldest in the entire region. It is laid out on part-lakeland
parkland, so you will no doubt be able to guess that water
hazards are a particular feature of the course design. Whilst
they are very easy on the eye and add to the overall splendour
of the course, the lakes are quite tricky to negotiate so be
sure to take care with each swing.
I look forward to seeing you all on the 23rd.
GOLF DAY CANCELLATIONS
Please be aware that there is always
the chance that, due to adverse weather in the days preceding a
golf day, a course may be closed or have a trolley ban. If
there is a problem then, wherever possible, those with email
will be informed and information will be posted on the website.
However, it is ultimately up to you to check if a course is open
or has any restrictions by phoning the club (not Steve).
For those of you who are members of a golf
club, please remember to keep a copy of your handicap
certificate in your bag at all times. This is just in case a
course requests that we provide them before play.
