Pitreavie Golf Club has an 18-hole, parkland layout with some elements of traditional links golf mixed in. Dr. Allistair MacKenzie designed Pitreavie. In his design, he incorporated features from his favorite course, the famous Old Course at St Andrews. Rather than flattening any undulation in the landscape, MacKenzie artificially enhanced the gentle slopes but still blended them seamlessly with the natural terrain. The golf course offers panoramic views of Forth Valley for golfers to enjoy during their round. Pitreavie Golf Club provides a formidable test but it is not beyond the means of a high handicapper.

Pitreavie Golf Club

First time playing this course, and it won’t be my last. I played a 2 ball with my friend and was given a warm welcome from the starter in a well stocked Pro shop, who also gave us a map of the course to aid us and to navigate the course. The first and second hopes are Par 5’s. This is indeed a great way start your round , with large and wide fairways , you can afford. To really open your shoulders and go for it. The tees and fairways are in excellent condition for the time off year , and I even the semi rough,, although wet was quite easy to get out of with a hybrid. We have 2 four balls in front , but was never an issue as the pace of play was extremely good and being our first time playing the course, helped us too know the layout. The greens were again in excellent condition. They were testing , but were consistent pace and you can read them quite well. Highlight was a birdie on the 16th , a 25 feet putt from off the green! The course layout is tricky , however, you always have a chance with your second shot and GIR is a frequent occurrence if you play the percentages. There is plenty signature holes on the course , and the Par 3’s are very challenging, but I found them to be proper Par3’s with the right amount of risk, fortune favours the brave. There are also plenty hidden greens , but the black and white marker poles are a great indicator , and we both drive well all day. I hit a gross 79 on the day , and thoroughly enjoyed the course, and I would go as far too say, it’s now up there as one of the best I have played .

Great Course

Relatively new to golf playing with a slightly more experienced golfer but it was a good course for both of us offering up challenging but not impossible tee offs. As you can imagine with rain & sun recently though if you do stray left or right you can end up in the thick stuff so bring a few spare balls & a good pair of eyes! All in all though a very enjoyable course to play at :)

Ok but won’t play again

Some really good holes but that was spoiled by
the scorecard not matching the 18 holes we played.
The 4th hole was closed and we had to play from the 7th onwards then eventually go back to play the others.

Visitor round

First time playing this course. Was going to.play as a single. I was however invited by a member and his guest on the 1st tee to play with them. This was greatly appreciated as their knowledge of the course was a great help to me. The course was in great condition and the company was excellent. I was made very welcome by the pro Paul. I would recommend playing a roind a Pitreavie.

Enjoyable Afternoon

Both my son in law and myself thought we would give Pitreavie Golf course a try even though recent weather had been very poor. The course was in great condition, with no slow play,vwhich definitely added to our enjoyment.

Shame about the weather!

Played Pitreavie for the first time and although we got soaked, the course was set out beautifully. Many of the holes were memorable and interesting. The staff and members were very friendly and are proud that their course was designed by the same man who designed Augusta National, Georgia.
I would definitely go back and try to play the course in drier conditions!

Excellent condition

We played on a wet morning but course was not soggy which says a lot for this time of year (Early May). The fairways and greens were in superb condition. A lot of challenging, blind holes which is tricky the first time you play it. A few proper tiered greens comparable to links courses. Bunkers were well maintained with good non compacted sand. I’m actually considering joining this club now as a result of a really enjoyable round of golf

Affordable Gem

The course was arranged by our hotel, while on our holiday in Scotland. The pro shop is a bit deceiving, not reflecting the quality of the course The pro shop staff was excellent. Following our round, the 1st assistant and we viewed AZ courses he should play on his holiday . The course is well above average. The layout is fun, a bit hilly. Walking was easy. The course is very well maintained. The greens rolled trued and were not tricky. The $40.00 fee included green fees, trollies, and clubs. The members welcomed us, making us feel as if we were at our home club. The only downside was the rental clubs. My set was very worn and dated, the set they gave my wife was men's with graphite shafts. We put away the scorecard and enjoyed the day.
