For those who don’t know Stoke Rochford Golf Club, it was described to me by our fixtures secretary, Mr Allchin, as a shit hot golf course. He said “everyone I know who’s going on holiday says they wish they where playing it”.

They call this golf club Lincolnshire’s hidden gem. It is tucked away behind the trees and an estate wall about six miles south of Grantham, just off the northbound carriageway of the A1 Great North Road between London & Newcastle, stands the immensely popular Stoke Rochford Golf Club, which has grown from one man’s enthusiasm for golf during the 1st World War to the excellent course and Clubhouse of today.

It now forms one of the most attractive and interesting golf courses in Lincolnshire and the East Midlands with its interesting contours, 4 river holes over the Cringle Brook, its play-ability, except under the severest of weather conditions, and the tremendous variety of flora and fauna, it is a course to be reckoned with, and well worth a visit.

Over the river from the 18th tee stands the magnificent Stoke Rochford Hall, built in 1846 and replacing the earlier houses of 1665 and 1774, and home until 1940 of the Turnor family. It is now a delightful Country House Hotel and Conference Centre. In January 2005 the Hall was tragically engulfed by a serious fire which destroyed part of the building, however, following three years of extensive reconstruction and restoration work,  as well as a full external stone clean, the Hall has now been fully restored to its former Grade I listed glory.
