    I have been a member for 3 yrs and every time you play it you face a different challenge, The 7TH par 3 on a nice calm day you can hit a pitching wedge and if there is a stiff breeze a 21 degree rescue club.It is a good wee challenge and presents players with numerous difficulties.The fairways are all superb but the rough and gause take its toll if you are off line.The greens are usually immaculate and run true.This year we have suffered along with most courses due to the bad weather but the course is still a little gem.

    I played the course in 1996 and found it very demanding. The greens were in fabulous condition and the fairways manicured to perfection. I'd recommend this course to anyone, especially advanced players who may find it challenging from the white tees.
    Unfortunately I live in Algeria now, but hope to return to play a few courses in the UK next summer.

    Played this course in '92 on the way back from the Open at Muirfield. Loved the quaint hole called 'Doon th' Lum' (Down the Chimney), where you drive off an elevated tee, using a distant smokestack as your target line.
    I was fortunate enough to play that day with a young lad, named 'Jock', who was the club champion of that year ( I believe he shot 2-3 over par the day we played).
    Anyway, he was a very gracious host and demonstrated the local talent for playing this course. On a short par 4 of 320 yds., he drove his tee ball through the green - with a 3-wood!!!! Och, Aye!
    p.s. if you see this note, Jock, (or anyone at Linlithgow who could pass this on to him) please drop me an e-mail and let me know how you are doing. I have a son of a similar age, Jordan, that is a nationally ranked junior player
    here in Canada (he was only 8 when you and I played). I have planned to return to Scotland in 2002 when Jordan graduates from high school and we would love to look you up for a game!

    Ideal if you are long and straight. Beware of the gorse and the canal which gets you every time.
