Hugely enjoyable

I had seen some comments on the current condition of the course but I did not see any of this when i played - Linden is a fantastic layout and was in very good condition, all in all a thoroughly enjoyable round despite the challenging conditions.

Great course layout

Linden Hall remains one of the best 18 hole course layouts in the north east. Today the greens were also great but overall the course was not in the best condition. Tee boxes were patchy and although cut fairways were full of weeds. The bunkers were largely unplayable, full of weeds and clearly not turned over for some time. MacDonald Hotels need to invest some money to bring the course back to its best as sadly the conditions are some way behind its main competitors at Matfen Hall, Slaley Hall and Close House.
On the plus side the scenery is magnificent, pace of play satisfactory and off course facilities pretty good.
It’s definitely worth a visit but not sure you would be happy to pay a membership at this point.

Great layout, shocking condition!

Having played this course a few times over the years I remembered it being a good test, a nice varied layout and always in good condition.

The first two remain but the course is truly in awful condition these days and really not worth playing.

Tee boxes are more like cricket pitches, greens are full of black patches and bare spots, bunkers have weeds growing in them and fringes etc are so bare that it's difficult to play off at times.

These conditions are nothing to do with covid either, it is simply neglect over a period of time.

There is no way it should be in this condition, and I definitely won't be back, nor would I recommend others do!

Enough of a challenge and a great layout

Played linden on a Wednesday with an 11 tee time. The pro in the shop was very friendly and pointed us to the first tee and explained there was a bit of a walk between a few of the tee boxes, but it’s easy to tell where you’re going. The rough was long and punishing but the fairways were in good condition and plenty wide enough so even realitivly strait is good enough. 3 of the 4 par 3s on the course are absolutely stunning, all playing fairly short but with a carry over water making them interesting and great fun. Probably would benefit from knowing the course a little better if you’re looking for a good score, a few holes are a bit blind and it would be easier if you knew where you could miss. All in all fantastic though.

Shocking condition

Quite simply they should not be taking visitor fees to play the course in this condition . The greens were appalling , the tee boxes even worse.
I know these are difficult times , but it’s shocking to take fees to play this course in its present state .
I have played this a few times and it’s a great layout with some great holes. I keep coming back to play it ........but this will be my last visit

Lovely parkland course

The course is set in a beautiful natura setting.
Some holes are rather tricky, but we managed OK...
When we played we were almost alone on he course and that was OK since it was a long time since last we played here. So we had no stress finding our way around the course...
Good experience.

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
