The owners of Linden Hall Hotel provided Jonathan with the opportunity to create something really unique. Set in historic parkland surrounding the 18th century mansion house, now a 50-bed hotel and spa owned and operated by Macdonald Hotels Group.

The golf course plays through a dramatic undulating landscape, home to a wealth of wildlife including roe deer and red squirrel, and punctuated with monkey puzzle trees, ancient oaks, and elegant water features.

This beautiful and exciting course measures 6850 yards off the back markers and is exhilarating to play with views toward Coquet Island in the North Sea and the Cheviot Hills to the North West.

The golf course opened for play in May 1997 to rapturous applause and a personal visit by HRH Prince Andrew, The Duke of York.
