Lindrick Golf Club, Worksop
THERE’S NO HOLES IN THIS ONE!
Golfers travel the world over to play the best courses - Spain, Scotland... Worksop.
Lindrick Golf Club near Worksop may not have the reputation of Gleneagles, but it does boast an impressive history and counts former world number one, Lee Westwood, who lives locally, among its membership.
Established in 1891, Lindrick first gained international recognition in 1957 when the Ryder Cup was held there and won by Great Britain and Ireland for the first time since 1929. Keeping the club house in top condition is essential to the course’s continued appeal and when its roof started to look a little under par, Martin-Brooks was asked to carry out repairs.
Our surveyor deemed the roof had reached the end of its useful life and recommended it was completely replaced. The original tiles are now obsolete, so it was necessary to find a good match. We settled on Eternity Acme Smooth Brindled plain clay tiles, which were laid on top of a high performance Vapour permeable underlay.
Some vertical tiling was also necessary to complete the job, as was the installation of new Code 5 sheet lead in the valley gutters. The club house’s flat roofs required refurbishment at the same time, so we recovered these areas in high performance felt and added seamless aluminium gutters to ensure a trouble free life for years to come.
Materials: Eternity Acme clay plain tiles, Vapour permeable underlay and Code 5 sheet lead
