    What a beautiful view for such a bad golf course. 2 years ago I would have played this course as often as I could, now they would have to pay me $35 to come back. This course in the last year has gone from a 7 to a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10. They are the only golf course i have ever played who had 50% of there fairways marked as ground under repair. If you hit your ball in the rough you dont find it. The pro shop charges $6 for a coke and candy bar but I guess if I had less than 20 people on my course at 10 am on a Saturday morning I would get every dine I could as well. Save money, go 20 minutes either way to Grassy Creek or Marion Lake club.

    Played Linville Ridge for the first time 9/11/12.

    Had been told it was a little rough, but it was anything but rough. This is one of the best public mountain layouts in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    The owners have put in the money to keep the course in excellent shape. The greens are in good condition, and the fairways and rough have been well maintained.

    Course has every challenge you can want, but is not a course where you need to fear every shot. Fairways have good room to hit into, the greens accept a good approach shot and have just enough movement that will test your green reading skills.

    This may be one of the best golf course piece of property I have seen in a while. The sights of the national forest and the babbling streams that run through the layout that has very few homes...made this a round to really enjoy.

    Oh, did I mention the price...just $31.

    Don't let past comments prevent a trip to Linville Fall will be a great day on the links.

    Bottom line - Aug 13th, 2010. still 2-1/2 stars; everything is as the previous review. I would add, if you can't hit a 20 yard wide fairway amd postage stamp hard greens, bring PLENTY of golf balls, as the rough around the traps and the fairways is equivalent to Bethpage Black. This would be one tough course in tip-top shape, but now, even the best golfers are not going to break 75.
    Friends of mine, Mark and Reenie of Double Eagle Construction own the place, and eventually they will do right by it. They are tradionalists.

    The course is now called Linville Mountain Club. The best way to describe the course is a work in progress. New owners purchased the course in May, 2010. This review is based on playing July 29th, 2010. After 9 months of neglect, due to the prior owners going bankrupt, the new owners are dilegently working to restore the course. After only 10 weeks of work, the fairways and tee boxes are in excellent shape. About half the sand traps have beautiful white sand while the other half of them are washed out. The greens might be in decent shape by September or October but for now, many of them are infested with crab grass and one green is completely dead. I saw three workers trying to remove the crabgrass by hand on one green.

    At the time of this writing there were no range balls for practice but if you want to shag your own balls, you can do that. Also there is no water on the course (the owners feel there is too much liability)so bring your own water bottles. Free ice is provided at the clubhouse. There are also no ball washers and no trash cans on the course. I did not see any bathrooms either except the ones at the clubhouse. The golf carts do not have any cover for your clubs if it rains. This is definatley bare-bones golf.

    Aside from having to play two holes along highway 221 and a couple holes along an active train track, the course is a great layout and very challenging. Many of the holes are picturesque with a trout stream running through (similar to Mt. Mitchell). For $30.00 (18 holes and a cart), it's a fair price. My guess is that they will raise the price once the conditions are improved.
