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.

Our only problem was that Linfield had not received notice of our Golf Now Tee Time. We were not in their system.
Fortunately, I had my phone and could prove my reservation and payment.

Yardage markers

My only request would be that they put up yardage markers. Unless you have a range finder, it's just a guess as to how far out you are.

Slow pace of play & wayward shots.

1st and last time here. Gor most of the day, tee boxes stacked 2 deep. Needs a ranger to come out and speed up play. Also, narrow course, so beware of errant balls. Heard "for" more than I have on any course, except for Melrose.

Course in great condition for this time of year

Played a lot of public courses this year and Linfield is among the top few. The greens were not the fastest but they play true. The club clearly cares about the course with an active and seemingly large staff of grounds keepers. The head pro and manager is very accommodating and friendly; lost a head cover which was found and overnighted back to me. Review would still be high despite this accommodation.

Nice course

First time playing Linfield National and it was a good day. Navigating the course is tricky as there is not good mapping for how the course plays. We lucked out and got paired with 2 players who have played the course multiple times. They were able to steer us away from many hazards that we would have been playing completely blind to. Many courses put up the maps at each tee for reference but just the tiny map on the score card was insufficient to relay any issues we would have dealt with.
Something needs to be done about the cicada hornets that are all over a few of the greens. I know they don't pose a real danger to humans but it is not widely known.

Tight

Good conditions and friendly staff. Course had several greens with dramatic tiers that out a premium on distance control. The fairways greens and tee boxes were well maintained and each of the bunkers I visited had enough sand and a severe enough lip to present a challenge.

It’s not any easy course to play without a guide. Yardage markers are sporadic. Several holes have severe dog legs that are intended to create a risk-reward structure, A good yardage book or on-cart GPS would help new players to make educated decisions.

Only other concern is that all the par 3’s are pretty short and similar. Course feels like it was squeezed into a bit of property that needed another ten acres.

Won’t be going back

Had a threesome booked for 710, arrived at pro shop around 630, Nobody was in the pro shop except for a guy manned Bud behind the counter. Told me he wouldn’t check me in until 7 because he had four groups to check in although nobody was in the pro shop waiting to get checked in. I went back in at 640 to ask if I could at least get a cart key so we could load up and go to the practice area , he in a very nasty tone said no, I’ll get a cart key when he checks me in at 7, I went back on at 650 and someone else was behind the desk and checked me in.. Because of Bud I will never go back. Too many good courses in the area where they treat the customers with respect.

Pretty Nice

The staff was friendly and the pace of play was good for a Saturday afternoon. We had a foursome and unfortunately they sent a twosome out after us. Needless to say, they were waiting most of the afternoon. First time playing here. Par 5’s are tricky. My only complaint about the layout is that the tees and greens are on top of each other.

Great value

Always enjoy playing here. It’s in great condition. But bring some extra balls if you can’t drive the fairway.
Favorite public course within a 10 mile radius of home.
