Linfield National Golf Club is a public course that is one of the area's best values. Formerly known as Sycamore Ridge, the course changed ownership in addition to its name. Since those two major changes, the course boasts better conditions and a renovated clubhouse. The layout has a classic links design that incorporates traditional elements including water, trees, and a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. The up-and-down of the golf course is one of the most challenging elements of the layout. The course is tight with a few adjacent fairways but this configuration also allows for a bit of extra room for recovery shots. Some of the holes at Linfield National Golf Club are quite narrow but it is still possible to hit the green in regulation. Though the course is only 6,164 yards, the rolling terrain will make it seem much longer.

Bad summer

A great fun play was not so great because of almost totally burned out and diseased fairways. Extensive seeding and aeration should improve things in a couple of weeks. Staff was very nice and did not try to hide things. Sandtraps need attention sometime. We still had a good time and even a couple of birdies. The greens were fine.

Aerated Course but A Good Round

We played right after the annual maintenance. The course did not come back as fast as they expected so they gave everyone discounted coupons. Even with the vagaries of the course it was a pleasant experience. The club house bar/restaurant is always fun.

HORRIBLE CONDITIONS/HORRIBLE SERVICE

THIS IS THE FIRST REVIEW I HAVE EVER POSTED ONLINE

This was one of the worst experiences I've had golfing. My friend booked him and I a 3:30 afternoon round on Golfnow yesterday and when we show up to the course there is a sign on the pro shop door reading " Due to overseeding, golfers will play at a discounted rate". This was our first warning to forget about the booking fee and go somewhere else, but we gave it a shot. We proceed into the pro shop and ask the gentleman at the register how the conditions are and he immediately says "you will not get a discounted rate". My friend and I begin to discuss whether or not to leave and go somewhere else and the gentleman chimes in again and says "you will also not get your booking fee back". We ask him again how the conditions are and he says "I played on Thursday and they aren't bad, and the greens are in good shape". It's hard to get the tone of this gentleman in this review but let me say that we were both starting our round extremely frustrated with how poorly two paying customers were just treated. So we get on the course and let me tell you, not only were the fairways non existent, the tee boxes were made of all dirt and no grass and the "greens in good shape" were full of sand, divots, and cleat marks. We did not hit one putt all day that didn't bounce at least twice on the way to the hole.

Terrible round and terrible experience, the owners should really reconsider this gentleman running your pro shop. You have turned two avid golfers away who live within 5 miles of the course to go play Raven's Claw, Bella Vista, Turtle Creek etc..

GET THE COURSE TOGETHER AND GET YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE TOGETHER. GOOD LUCK, A LOT OF WORK TO DO.

Conditions of Fairway and Tee Boxes

I am writing this review after reading some negative reviews about Linfield National. The course is having course maintenance performed on the fairways and tee boxes due to the wet weather and extreme heat this summer (the course is playable and besides it is August). One of the few courses that lets people know about on going maintenance both at the course and on the web site. In addition to offering discounted green fees, Linfield National is also giving complimentary green fees so players can come back and play a round when the course is back to normal play. When reading other reviews, I did not see one player acknowledge the discounted green fees and complimentary green fees. Thank you Linfield National and owner, Robert for my discount and my complimentary green fees (which I am going to use this Friday). My 4some also enjoyed ice cold beer and a hot dog after our round (two cheerful ladies were working at the time we stopped).

Course Conditions

I am writing this review because of the negative reviews that I have been reading for the past few weeks. The course is going thru maintenance issues on the fairways and tee boxes but it is playable (after all it is August). Linfield National is not hiding the issues from its players. They have had signs posted thru out the clubhouse and on their web sites for the past three weeks detailing the on going maintenance. Not only are they discounting green fees (at the course and on websites) they are giving complimentary green fees for players to use the next time they play. Thank you Linfield National (Robert) for being upfront and offering the complimentary green fees. My 4some also enjoyed a cold beer and hot dog after our round of golf from some very cheerful ladies.

Course is in very bad shape

Well this was the first and last time playing this course. Tee boxes have minimal grass if any and the fairways are pretty much in the same condition. I can’t believe they are charging full price without advertising that the course is in horrible shape. If they let you know ahead of time and you still play it then yes that would be fair but not to announce it ahead of time is very poor judgement in my eyes. The staff was friendly but that is the only positive thing they have going for them. If you are reading this I highly advise you not to play this course until it gets a complete makeover which would take at least a year if not longer.

Shame the rain wrecked the course

Always enjoyed this courses tight and fun layout, but it’s been ravaged by the rain this year and is in bad shape. They shouldn’t be charging full fees for how bad it is. Most fairways are bare dirt and you are better off in the rough. Greens were beat up as well. Such a shame, it will take a year before it gets back in shape, hope it does!

Need Course Ranger

I have played this course many times in the last few years and the condition wasn’t good like it used to be in this time of the year. Our group started two holds behind the foursome in front of us and we caught up with them by the 6th hold after that we literally had to wait more than 15 minutes every shot! And these people had no golf adequate whatsoever, they just took their sweet time like they were pro or something. It would be nice if there’s a ranger coming by once a while. I would think twice to go play there again with the current rate, Not worth the money!

Linfield National

This is a nice course. More challenging than some others but not as difficult as say, Inniscrone. The tee boxes were being reseeded and the course was a little dry. Normally this is a beautiful course in great condition. Still very fun and a great value! Fiona the bartender is great too. One of my favorite courses locally, A+

Maintenance

The fairways are poorly maintained and overall course maintenance needs improvement. That said, the holes are not extremely long, which I find appealing, yet they are challenging. Turf maintenance would make this course really nice.

I noticed when someone makes a positive comment, the course responds with a thank you and a come back and play

Negative comments should also be answered.
The course was in terrible conditions. I’m not sure how someone could say it was “excellent”
We purchased Groupons for Linfield and we’re trying to trade in so we don’t have to return.

Disappointing

Course was not in very good shape. No grass on tee boxes, fairway grass was long, and bunkers filled with water. Pace of play was good which was the best thing about the course. Very disappointing, will probably not go back.

Challenges

I have played this course a couple of times. The layout can be challenging and shot placement is paramount on a few holes. Although I like this course, I will probably not play again this season, the course has taken some damage all over from extreme rain and extreme heat. Most tees had no grass. Lots of burn out in the fairways, the greens were in decent shape but a few had more than lazy golfer damage. Hopefully the fall and spring will give this course time to heal.

Horrible conditions

Tried linfield because I’ve been seeing specials for $20 for the past month. Pictures looked nice and I saw 4/5 stars. Maybe this course was nicer in the past, but when I went on July 21, 2019, the greens were dried out/ slow/ had multiple ball marks, the tee boxes were filled with sand and the fairways were super patchy. The bunkers were muddy or hard and dried out. I could see that this course has great potential. The layout is fairly nice albeit super tight. I guess for $20, what would you expect, but definitely not worth going back. I’d rather pay a little more for a nicer course that I can play on.
