Type
Style Parkland
Par 70

Slope 0
Rating 0.0

Above Scotland's Royal Burgh town of Linlithgow sits the Linlithgow Golf Club, featuring 18 holes amid farmland and hills, and views of the Ochil Hills, Union Canal and Forth Valley. It's about midway between Edinburgh and Glasgow. The golf course measures 5,851 yards - short enough to not do too much damage to the legs, long enough to require well-planned golf shots.

A round of golf at the Linlithgow Golf Club kicks off on Drambuie, a par-4 333-yard hole that plays short and straight, with a fairway that slopes down with minimal hazards. Things get increasingly tougher: By Deli's Dio, the ninth hole, you're looking at a long par 4, measuring 420 yards. The 18th, Union Canal, is another long par 4, measuring 413 yards, where you'll need to shoot a short carry over a ravine to reach an undulating tree-lined fairway - there's that canal, too, to keep things interesting.

The Linlithgow Golf Club clubhouse offers a lounge and restaurant for dinner, drinks, lunch and snacks.

We enjoyed playing this course but was disappointed with the conditions of the greens.We found that the cutting of the greens was irregular and some holes had tufts of grass as if the blades were not sharp enough or the operator was inexperienced or careless.However the course was very tidy and good value for money.

Good challenge

Friendly and welcoming club. Good course in good condition - seemingly short par 4 holes will catch you unaware - especially the one with the big tree! Excellent clubhouse with great views and welcoming staff.

Leisure round at Linlithgow

Hard course to find (even though we could see it from the nearby swimming pool) and the satnav led us badly astray. The pro shop could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had also got a terrific deal to play so great value there.
The first few holes are quite an aerobic challenge, climbing uphill to the top of a hill when it all levelled out. The course is generally quite short but accuracy off the tee is essential and a driver is not always the right tool for the job. I found the back nine more challenging but tiredness may have been creeping in. With seemingly lots of par 3 holes (two even back to back), this course is a lot of fun. The 17th is a little gem - aim right of the green and let the ball roll down. The course was well drained and firm even in mid January. A holed pitch for a birdy 3 on the last hole put the cherry on the top for me and I can’t wait to come back. The barman was also extremely friendly and we loved the hospitality.
So well done Linlithgow GC. Great memories of a most enjoyable round.

Friendly local course

For the weather that has been around the course is in great condition. very friendly pro shop and relatively quiet course at this time of year. Because of the expected snow storm and freezing conditions it was winter greens and mats on the fairway.

Nice course

Played on a Tuesday afternoon so course was fairly quiet, although not long, found it tricky especially the shorter front nine where shot placement is a better option than using the Driver. Some lovely par 3s and only 1 par 5 but still a stern test on this undulating course. Greens were good and staff very helpful.

Cold weather

Frosty Linlithgow

It was -2'C and I was looking just to get a swing and a walk. There was only another 2 ball on the course. The course was on winter greens which meant I didn't take my putter out my bag. Also it was playing really short. I didn't need my driver until the 9th hole, with a lot of the par 4s playing around 250 yds and with frost 3 wood was the choice on those. The back 9 played a lot better with the 2 par 5s in play and the longer par 4s. I get a buzz out of long drives so getting 50 yd run on a drive was quite satisfying

Linlithgow Golf Course - Fabulous

My son and I played the course for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope to do so again before I return to South Africa. Can honestly not fault our experience ... a hilly course for sure and for those who are maybe not as fit as we are (although I am not a youngster) they may want to hire a battery operated buggy.
