At the Simshill entrance to Linn Park there is a really rewarding, picturesque walk adjacent to the public golf course The main walking path which is really a track( correct shoes required) is lined with magnificent 200 year old Sycamore trees. If feeling energetic this path will lead you to the main park, waterfall white bridge etc. You can also view the scant ruins of cathcart castle. Easy parking is available at Simshill car park which is right next to the golf course walk entrance. A Lovely walk.

Good challenge and the greens were hard but fair. I will return again. Thanks. Pre book or pay on the day with cash. The 10th hole is confusing with a sneaky burn over the hill. But head left up the hill to the green and if you make a 4 u should be playing in the open

We played here last week to see what condition the course was in & to see which is the best of the local Municipal Golf Courses.
The course in general & the Fairways in particular are in good condition just now although the Greens could be slightly better.
It's great value at only £11 per Round as the course always offers a challenge with its long Par 3's and Card Busting 10th hole (Molly's Rest), a tight dog-leg that forces an accurate lay up tee shot & then long approach shot between a tight window in the trees.
We've played 3 of the local Municipal Courses in the past week this is definitely the course we'd Recommend to play if you fancy some cheap golf this summer ... it's in much better condition than 'Barshaw' & far less expensive than 'Rouken Glen'.

I have played here a lot over the past 45 years. The course is council-run but I would say that it has improved over the years -especially the last 4 or 5 years. It's not a long course but there are some tricky holes, especially the 10th (a dog leg requiring lots of accuracy or luck). It's good value for money and not too busy.

If you know council run golf courses, you'll know what to expect. This one is a bit better kept than most but still gets muddy in the rain. Facilities are very basic - you get a toilet and a place to change although most people change in the car park. The course has a mix of easy and impossible holes. The first and fourth share a double green with fairways separated by a path lined with trees. The best line to the green is from the 4th fairway to 1st and from the 1st fairway to the 4th which means crossing the path with your tee shot. Unfortunately, crossing the path is out of bounds! There is one par 5; the 12th which is a good challenge as two good hits can get your ball in the stream just in front of the green so you have to think this one. The best part, for me, is the 15th and 16th pair. the 15th is great driving hole. If you can get a good drive, your ball can bounce on the down-slope and get close to if not on the green. and the 16th is a delightful par 3 to a two tiered green. If you can survive the 1st and 4th and not get too angry at the 10th (a vicious dog-leg to left through the eye of a needle), you'll enjoy the last 4 holes. Good luck!

Linn Park is a very good value for money Municipal Golf Course offering Discounted Green Fees until end of August allowing you to play for £7:50 ... a real bargain for what you get.
A mature parkland course it offers challenging holes and at the moment is in immaculate condition, the fairways beautifully defined and the greens are in very good condition too. The course offers a challenge for golfers of all levels with its long Par 3's and the Card Busting 10th hole (Molly's Rest) with a tight dog-leg that forces an accurate lay up tee shot and then fairway wood between a tight window in the trees to approach the green with your 2nd.
It's been a regular on our playlist for many years. Having played many courses in the area this is one we often return to, I've played this course in various weather conditions, ranging from calm sunshine to very strong wind and can truly say this course is always a challenge with conditions making many of the longer Par 3 greens out of reach with your Driver. Bunkers are well placed and offer you the chance to decide between playing Percentage or aggressive Pin-Seeking golf.
Trolley Hire NOT available.
Go Play! You'll enjoy it :)

If you have a few hours to spend on a nice warm summer evening, you could do worse than spend a few quid and get in 18 holes before trhe day is over. Its not the best course in Scotland neither is it the worse. If you feel brave playing the second hole, the green is on a dog leg left at the foot of the hill from the tee. Ive only ever hit the green in one by playing a six iron through the trees. Hint: play it safe and lay up on the fairway otherwise there is a high probability that you will lose a ball. Less testosterone and more common sense !!

First played there 50 years ago, it has not changed much! Its a short course 5000+. They dont have Golf carts for hire! And its so hilly its best to carry a half set anyway. Its a reasonable test of golf where accuracy counts more than distance. well kept and not busy on weekdays! enjoy!
