About

Holes 18
Type
Style Parkland
Par 70
Length 5851 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

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.

Matched with another 2 ball

Reasonable Round, but club had a competition on. The person in the Pro shop was not happy to find we had booked. He paired us with another two ball but we let them go ahead of us. Club should not allow bookings at the course when a competition is on. Our tee time was 6 pm but a number of players arrived after that time.

Poor

Made to feel like a second rate citizen for booking through GolfNow. The staff were immediately unfriendly and had double booked our tee time so forced our two ball to play with another two ball (who were equally unhappy).

Play was very slow on a lovely evening.

Course was very hilly and not in great condition, some greens in terrible condition, especially given the recent good weather.

Would not recommend.

Good Course

In the main the course was in excellent condition however a few greens weren't great with what looked like fertiliser burns on them in large areas.

Overbooked and slow round

After being paired with another 2 ball because the course was busy, we let the other pair play first. The club had not removed the tee times from Golfnow as there was a competition on and 4 balls we’re teeing off up till 7pm. Once underway, the pace was a bit slow due to the congestion on the course. The course played ok, but the greens were badly maintained. The rough was very thick and unforgiving (peak growing season) so anything off the fairway was usually lost. All in all a reasonable round, but some basic admin management would reduce the over booking and subsequent congestion.

Mats agogo

Nice course and really cheap but can't understand why we had to use little hairy mats on the fairways and the rough. The course wasn't that wet. If the club are so concerned about their fairways getting churned up, they should make it clear on their website. Waste of time and money

£8 for the round, unbelievable value.

We had a 4 ball booked and the rain was treacherous. Unfortunately the started was unable to contact me to inform me the course was closed(we had all travelled from Edinburgh so we were gutted as we were still keen to play). But, despite a delay the greenkeepers done all they could to squeegee the greens and get the course back open. An hour later and we teed off. First time playing and for £8 all I can say is wow. Unbelievable value. The course has a bit of everything and we will certainly be back. Thanks again!

Excellent condition

The course was in excellent condition considering time of year and the recent monsoons. Guy in Pro shop was excellent asked if we had been before and then gave us several tips which we used and were very useful thumbs up emoji we got this for £8 per player which is outstanding value for money. Definitely would recommend this course and will be back next season

Greeted by a person in the pro shop who was less than helpful. I mentioned Golf Now booking and the reply was “your playing with two other people” that was it end of conversation No Covid arrangements for a four ball, therefore I mentioned this to the other pair of golfers who agreed to tee off early and keep the game separate.

Course is relatively straight forward not too difficult, easy walking. It satisfied my curiosity but that’s it. Doubt if I would return.

A challenging hilly course

It is a good course with some very challenging holes. The 17th hole is very interesting, don't play it long!

Expected more

I was really looking forward to playing Linlithgow, but as we turned up and there was nobody in the pro-shop, I helped myself to the scorecard and went to the first tee.

The club house looks on to both the 1st and 18th greens and looked fantastic. A nice 1st hope to start, and then after that it just felt like a course which had no character.

There are so many courses in the surround areas of Linlithgow, and this one isn’t as good as many of them. Especially for the fee we paid - it just lacked so much.

However, greens were in good condition and there are a couple of nice holes - but don’t think I’ll rush back.
