Lingfield Park racecourse

Course Description
Lingfield racecourse is located in the heart of the Surrey countryside and very easily accessible from central London by train or car.

There is not just racing at this venue: Lingfield also boasts an 18 hole championship golf course and a leisure club. The course can cater for every need from race day hospitality, conferences, weddings, sponsorship and much more!

Lingfield racecourse is one of the oldest established racecourses in the UK, having celebrated its centenary in 1990.

The all weather track is triangular and 1 mile 2 furlongs in length. It has some undulations. The straight run in is only 2 furlongs long.

The track is sharp with not very well defined turns and also has a distinct camber. It is common for horses tracking the leader on the inside to be severely hampered on the final turn.

In 2001 the old Equitrack surface was replaced with a brand new type of material – Polytrack. The new Polytrack surface has very little kickback compared to the old Equitrack surface and is thus now more popular with trainers.

Low drawn horses used to have an advantage for all distances upto and including 10f. But the Polytrack surface has put an end to this as the strip nearest the far rail is often slower than the rest of the track.

The Members Enclosure: As well as access to all public areas, Day Member Badge Holders have exclusive access to the Trackside Carvery Restaurant which serves four course lunches in comfortable surroundings overlooking the ractrack. The Brasserie offers a selection of hot and cold dishes with bar facilities. And the Champagne & Seafood Courtyard Restaurant serves fresh seafood and Grande Marque champagnes for the discerning racegoer during the Summer months only. Advanced booking for the restaurants is advised.

The Grandstand Enclosure: Within this enclosure you have access to the main Grandstand, Parade Ring and Winners Enclosure. Facilities include: The new Trattoria Italian Restaurant which serves pizzas, pastas and salads and has full bar facilities, Lingfield Park Fish & Chips, Oaks Sports Bar, Delimarche Food Court and Bar is situated under the Grandstand the Deli offers a fantastic selection of filled baguettes, Italian coffees and snack foods.

The racecourse is set in over 300 acres of parkland. In 1987 they opened a 18 hole golf club. Lingfield Park and Golf Complex can therefore offer unique corporate packages, with for example a round of golf in the morning and some excellent racing in the afternoon.
