SLOW

Played here many times has been slow on a few occasions but this time was painful!!! 4-ball in front of us were everywhere but the fairways and spent an age looking for balls on every hole! By the 9th hole we had had enough and walked off and headed back to the 1st hole hoping it would be quiet but then came across a 3 ball who proceeded to hit 3 balls each of the tee and one individual in the group kept losing his temper and continually kept smashing his clubs off the ground in temper!! We walked off at the 4th and went home!!!!

Avoid the bunkers

Course is great except for the bunkers. Less sand and more rubble in some of them. Very firm. Other than that it's on goos shape.

Great layout

Tees excellent, fairways good, greens good (a bit green and slow), bunkers terrible (bone dry, no sand, weeds).
Layout is good and scenery quite spectacular.
Pace of play was dire, almost 5 hours on a Sunday afternoon, multiple groups gave up and walked off meaning the offending groups played close to 6 hour pace. If the club don’t think this is a problem they should or they won’t attract repeat visitors.

SUPERB 5☆ GOLF COURSE

I played here last September as part if a 2 round overnight hotel stay package, the course was very wet due to prolonged rain but Thursdays round couldn't of been more different, the course, the fairways & the greens were all in tip top condition so lush & green they were wow ! The course was so well maintained with barely a blade of grass out of place. The weather was terrific with the sun shining bright all the way round, we teed off at half 7 for 1 of the best rounds of golf I've ever had or should I say the most enjoyable. The fairways are perfect & lush to play off like a great green carpet & the greens are wow immaculate & they look so green, great maintenance team obviously but tricky at the same time to putt on, they run true but they have quite a few tricky borrows that you have to read at your peril. Can't praise this course enough & can't wait to play there again real soon. Club shop pro was a lovely, friendly & informative guy. We hired a buggy which is a good choice as between some holes there can be a bit of a hike from green to next tee box. Buggy here is up £5 from last September but then again look at the rise in price for electric so £25 now isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things. Well done Linden definitely be back as it's the best £21 for a round I've ever spent !

Could have been much better.

A decent enough layout in a nice setting but in need of course maintenance, VERY slow greens, obviously not cut before the weekend, terrible bunkers, they are big but not much sand in them and rocky. The worst part was the shouting and screaming going on by drunken groups playing the course. Never again!

The pro was friendly though, hopefully he finds a better location to work from...

The Course needs money spending on it. Greens were uneven and would benefit from Top Dressing and rolling.
Course wasn't busy which is down to the fact there are better courses in the area. Having said all of the above we both enjoyed what Linden Hall offered and would come back later in the year. It just needs investment in the course in the form of machinery and materials.
