Rating 69.8

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.

Great outing

Played Linfield on a whim, very happy with the decision I made. Course is really fun, lot of different looks and challenges. You'll use every club in your bag and have to think about your approaches throughout. Good view of the powerplant as well. Plays a bit tight but not in a cheap way. Elevation changes everywhere. Had a blast out there.

Pace was phenomenal but it was also a Monday at noon so it's hard to really judge that. Price was perfect.

The track was in great condition considering the rainy summer & fall seasons we had. Compared to other courses I've played recently this one was in the best shape, I was really impressed.

Also wanted to say the staff was especially friendly and made an great impression on me. Can't wait to get back to this course, I had a great time and will refer anyone to it that will listen to me.

Course needs work.

Most fairways dead grass, tees need attention,, greens were nice. Should be charging lower price since course is not being maintained. No sand in sand traps.

Needs work

The lay out is nice but the conditions were not good. There was recently a lot of rain so I didn't expect things to be in great shape but the fairways were black and burnt out in many areas. I think they must have had some sort of fungus growing on them in the black spots. Several tee boxes were scraped and a few greens air-rated as well.

soggy conditions

My partner and I have played here before. It has a nice mix of holes that present a good challenge on mildly hilly terrain. It's not a big course from the back tees at 6365 yards but the yardage for the average player from white, gold and red tees is about right. The course is kind of pushed tight together with not a lot of space between holes. Straight works more than distance but there are a few long holes out there. Course was wet and damaged from heavy local rains but the greens were very good. It's not heavily tree lined but there are some trees that need to be trimmed or removed to open up a couple tight spaces.

We had two golfers that played a 3 hour round with very few holdups. The condition of the greens were excellent and we had a really enjoyable time. I’ve probably played this course 25 times in the past.

Pleasantly surprised

I thought I had played here before several years ago but that was not the case. Upon arriving, the pro shop was well stocked and the pro at the counter was courteous. We had one guy running late but he was allowed to catch us on hole 3. My takeaway was that they were very flexible on this day, as it was hot and not too busy. The carts were lined up and cleaned very well, which is an underrated detail that many public courses miss. We were paired with a single who bought into their membership program and knew the course, ultimately making it a very pleasant experience.

I liked the layout in general as each hole required some thought. I'm pretty sure I used every club in the bag, and you can't just pull the big stick on every tee. Some holes have more narrow fairways, others have doglegs that you can try to carry. The tee boxes were in good-great shape (scaling from poor-excellent), with a few that were slightly too dry when at the top of the course. There's some blind tee shots but if you hit it straight, have no fear. The fairways were tight on some holes, with some bailout areas. Again, some were very dry and hard as a rock. There wasn't much brown grass anywhere. The rough and fescue was a fair penalty IMO. Water on a few holes but mostly covered in algae. The greens were fast but not unreasonable and rolling quite true. In general, people appear to fix their ball marks +1, which is my standard when I play anywhere. My only dislike was pin positions, as they have stickers on the stick. I couldn't tell where the pin was and also felt some of the on course yardage figures were inaccurate.

The bar was full at the turn, so our turn-dogs meant a 5 minute wait. I booked this tee time as a hot deal on golf now so I saved a few bucks. Overall, I plan to return to Linfield National in the future.

Good folks and good golf

Over the past three years, I have found Bob, John, Pete and Robert in the Pro Shop to be very pleasant and accommodating. Each has a vast knowledge of golf to share. Besides being very friendly , they are service oriented. Additionally, the wonderful ladies in the restaurant/bar are outstanding. My weekly visits are a treat, knowing that I will e greeted pleasantly

The weather was awful, we got stuck in a major rain storm and the course was basically under water. called the pro shop to get a rain check and they laughed at us. so we just had to wait it out so we didn't lose our money. nice course but if there is ever a chance of rain don't bother.

Poor Customer Service - Do Not Book Online

I had a very bad experience the last time I went to Linfield National. The course itself isn't bad, but the customer service was awful. The employees there were very rude over the phone and in person. They were incompetent in their online system. I made reservations online via their website and was charged a down payment. When I arrived to the course and paid in cash the employee could not figure out how to reduce my amount owed by the down payment I already paid. His reasoning was "anything online I have no control of". All in all, I paid more than I should of and received attitude for doing so.

We are sorry to see you did not enjoy your overall experience. The "down payment" is a booking fee our course management made clear we have not recourse against. It is a fee for the service of booking so it cannot be discounted further at the course level. This issue was addressed promptly and we hope you may understand.

Interesting

This was my first time playing this course. I booked a 1 golfer only tee time off of golf now thinking I’d be paired with a threesome or at least a twosome, there was no starter so I waited at the first tee. A foursome showed up that had a tee time after mine. I called the pro shop and the gentleman told me to either play as a single or wait for a twosome after the foursome. Not what I had in mind but oh well. Course has some nice holes overall not a bad course, most of the bunkers had water and not even raked properly, i’m sure the rain had some to do with it. Not sure if I’d come though.

Great value. ..on a nice course

Linfield National is a tighter course, where errant shots can find your ball going to a neighboring tee box, so please remember to yell FORE if needed. :)

Water comes to play on several holes. Bunkers could be more consistent with their sand levels. I found about half a dozen bunkers.

Played from the blue tees and found this course to be challenging from either tee. Lots of variety with dog legs left and right. Greens are very undulating and I can see them being even more challenging as summer approaches. The greens we're recently aerated so they were bumpy and on the slower side when I played.

The staff was very friendly. Brenda the bartender was great and there's a nice 19th hole bar here! Also a six bay golf simulator located at the clubhouse for indoor golf fun.

Definitely worth playing here but bring your short game. I'll be back to play.
