A walk in the woods

This is one of my favourite golf courses , it has some great par 3s over water to give you a good test . It's set in beautiful wood land most times I get the chance to play the coarse you get to see great wild life is dear foxes etc also has some great par 5s. If you have not played it put it on your list. It's worth the drive.

Played Linden quite a few times over the last year. However, played with 6 people last week and the greens were terrible. Patchy, slow and in urgent need of nuture. Good course and conditions normally. Facilities are good too and staff are friendly

Totally Disappointing Experience

Played Golf for 50 years and it’s the first time I’ve ever walked off a course! Tee boxes were terrible didn’t relate to the card distances in any way, all were falling of the front of the front so we’re hitting off down slopes, some didn’t ever have any markers at all. Bunkers were a disgrace I’ve seen better on council run courses. And as for the greens well don’t get me started there lest just say it was hit and hope. The “PLAYMARCH” voucher wouldn’t work either on this booking. It took three hours to play nine holes with a buggy course was full of Hackers had enough so walked off what a joke!

Average in all departments.

A Cold day in early November, Average bacon sandwich and coffee = £5. Pace of play was slow on the front 9, stuck behind 2, 4 balls. Waved through on 10th by both sets of 4 balls only to catch up with the slowest 2 ball known to man on 15th!
The course was a bit messy, long walks from some greens to the next tee box. Most tee boxes were brought forward, greens recently timed so not true.
Everything average at best but probably vfm at only £12 for the 18 holes.

Nice course in great Northumberland countryside

Course in great condition.
Checked in at the pro shop very quickly from friendly staff.
Very quiet on Saturday we played so could take our time enjoying the scenery, fresh air and sun.!
Plenty of wildlife around.....pheasants a plenty!
We hired a buggy which at £30 was a lot more than the round ! And more than other courses
Other than that I highly recommend this course

Fantastic course in fantastic condition!

What a fantastic gem of a course in great location. The staff were all very friendly and gave good advice to us before we headed out onto the course.
The course itself was in great condition with a number of cracking picturesque holes and some very challenging par threes.

Hidden gem

Great location. Lovely well maintained coarse. Quite difficult for a beginner but I loved every second. Definitely worth coming back for a another round or two.

Good Course BUT....

The course was in good conditions apart from the Tees.... every tee (mens and ladies) were in a disgraceful state. There was hardly a blade of grass on them. Would recommend to a friend with the advisory about the tee conditions

Good course but ....

Yes , good course BUT are the green staff short staffed ? Tees appear dead and bunkers get a grunt of a rake every so often so needs bit work carried out and greens need nipped down a tad for better pace .
But lovely course , recommend a buggy tho as lengthy and lot of walking between tees

Lovely day

Linden Hall is a beautiful, somewhat challenging course, set in fabulous Northumbrian countryside. I was disappointed with the brown tee boxes, and the bunkers could have done with a good raking, but the fairways and greens were in good order.
A lovely course.

In need of TLC

This course is an a great venue for a round of golf. Low handicappers have chances to test their skills but at the same time medium/high handicappers get a good but fair test of their golf. I walked the course with the owners when it was first built and it was immaculate and every hole (maybe with 2 exceptions) has some feature to make it memorable. My only concern is that the course has been a little neglected and needs some TLC. Tee boxes need tidying, greens are OK but could be better, paths need attention and very few bunkers have sand in them (or at least it is so compacted it's like playing off concrete). I am told that the course is being worked on and I certainly will be playing it again this summer.
