Linden Hall Golf & Country Club: This predominantly open parkland golf course roams its way over a large area of rural countryside and woodland, wrapping itself around the onsite stately-home-hotel in the process. Linden Hall is certainly one of the best of the modern-day layouts to be established in the north of England.
Open space, big bunkers, ditches and ponds, excellent greens and well-structured holes all play their part. A good collection of par-3s demand well-judged carries over water if you are to find the safety of their respective greens.
You'll enjoy many views of Linden Hall itself, with the layout bringing you back to the Hall on the 9th, 13th and 18th holes. Views over surrounding hills add another pleasing dimension to this layout, while much tree-planting should see the course mature into something quite special in future years.
