Course type

Our championship golf course at Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club is one of the most picturesque in the area. 18 holes are spread across our large private estate, ensuring a secluded, beautiful and satisfying round. Designed by highly regarded course architect Jonathan Gaunt, the par 72 parkland course has wide, undulating USGA specification greens and 4 memorable yet challenging par 3’s. Several unique water hazards and strategically placed bunkers lie in wait for unlucky golfers at a number of holes.


18 hole championship golf course with fully stocked pro-shop, putting green & short game area, practice nets. Buggy & club hire available. For refreshments, the golfer’s lounge in the Linden Tree Pub is the perfect place to quench your thirst and dissect your round.

Nearest the Pin

Linden boasts a great set of par 3 holes, all four of which are under 150 yards from both Red & Yellow markers; all very picturesque but don’t lose concentration as water comes in to play on each one; middle of the green on any one and you’ll have a great opportunity for birdie.

Toughest Hole

The 400 yard par four tenth hole, ‘Avenue Wood’ is stroke index one. A challenging dog-leg right makes for a tough tee-shot; too far left and you run out of fairway in to some penal rough, yet bite too much off to the right and the trees await. If you do manage to find the fairway, a mid to long iron second shot to a green well protected on all sides by bunkers. Definitely a hole to be happy with a par and walk to the next tee.

Signature Hole

Hole 13 ‘Cedar’ is a 547 yard double dog-leg par 5 and a true risk reward hole. Only the longest hitters have a chance to go for the green in two but even those choosing to lay-up are faced with a daunting 3rd to a small green, well protected by water waiting to swallow up any shot coming up short.

A word from the Club Manager

Linden Hall has been regarded as one of the best layouts that the rich golf offering in Northumberland boasts. A stern test for even the most discerning of golfer, yet a course that can still be enjoyed by all age groups & ability levels. We’d love to see you here over the summer months, call or go online to book a round and come and experience Linden for yourself.
