Step back in time

Don’t bother going here. The starter was extremely rude and unwilling to have a mature conversation. Felt like we were going back in time, not into a modern world of golf that we have experienced in recent years. We ended up not playing because I don’t want to support a club represented by this individual.

Not enjoyable

It felt like the staff and the members treated us poorly because we were not members and had booked through golf now. The round took us 4 hours because a 4 ball of members would not let us play through. Totally ruined the round. The rough was unplayable. Also it’s advertised as 18 holes when it is actually 9 holes that you play twice. The 9th/18th was also a winter green for some bizarre reason. Certainly won’t be going back.

Lovely 9 hole course

Played on 12th September and the course was in great condition. Some of the lushest fairways I’ve ever played off. Despite the wet weather during the week the greens still had some pace. They defend themselves with tiers, false fronts and run off areas so your approach shots have to be well considered.

The tees and bunkers were also well maintained. It’s a good and fair test, wide fairways but juicy rough, you can find you ball ok but it is a real hazard if you find it and sometimes just have to take your medicine.

The course has a really good length to it in comparison to a lot of 9 hole courses and the views and surrounds are really nice. Watch out for the Lamas grazing on the Castle grounds, I had a bit of a double take with that !!!

Some good holes played between lovely mature trees, the last two holes do seem like they’ve been squeezed in by the skin of their teeth but it doesn’t detract from the actual playability of the holes themselves.

Lovely course, well worth checking out.

A Wee Hidden Gem

We arrived at course having booked through Golf Now. Went to clubhouse which was open and had an honesty box. Asked a member what to do as no starter could be found. I was directed to a board of Tee-Off times and surprise surprise our name and Tee-Time was highlighted. There was a small practice putting green which I wish I'd takn advantage off as I was caught out on the greens a few times during our round. Course was in excellent condition with a variety of trees lining the fairways, The fairways were lush and good fer hitting off, The rough was proper rough which wrapped around the club in places spoiling or marring potential great shots(I have not seen or played in semi-rough this difficult for years and this just added to the enjoyment). The greens were faster than Usain Bolt in places with great undulations making putting adventurous at times with putts going astray and rolling past the hole unexpectedly. Several of the fairways criss crossed each other which was quite interesting and care is needed so that you do not play over others in places. Several members asked us if we were enjoying the course and the camaraderie of the members was excellent. My Mrs whom walked the first nine with us and took advantage of the clubhouse facillities while we played the back nine was equally impressed even getting into the spirit of things by directing errant golfers how to use facilities such as drinks machines and honesty-box. NB: It was great to see women out on course having a good round with no pressure from others at their back. Definitely be baCck.

Great 9 hole Course

Had a great round last night, some challenging holes and for a 9 hole course it has some length. Only thing to watch out for is that Google maps and website direct you to the main castle rather than the golf course, the turn in for the golf course is the turning after the main entrance, look out for the golf club sign on the corner.

Thansk for the review. Not sure why google has moved us. I have submitted an update which should solve the location / directions issue.

Good 9 hole track

Course was is good condition despite recent restrictions, greens were a tiny bit slow, but to be expected. VERY true though! Nice track with a good bit of space about it. Some fairways are narrow, but well defined, and deep rough is well back.

Good wide open 9

Good course, well maintained, fun greens, deceiving distances. You won’t lose balls here, wide open but thin fairways, mostly level play, not a challenge for walking at all and easy on the legs.

Dundas Parks

From the moment I stepped into the starters office you realise your going to have a great day. The starter was a credit to the golf club. Very helpful, friendly and made you feel very welcome. The course was in excellent condition. Even the fact it is only a nine hole course, it is a great test for any golfer. It was an enjoyable pleasure to play here an shall be returning in the near future. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Great find.

A friend and I played this course on a recommendation from his father, neither of us had heard of the course before.

The weather was good for Scottish golf weather - dry and not too windy. The starter was extremely friendly and gave us a bit of advice on the course.

The course is extremely well maintained and is slightly surprising for a parkland course in that there is a fair degree of variance in the holes with a good mix of lengths of par 4s and some undulation. Two of the par 4s are just about driveable and one must be a borderline par 5. Sparsity of trees and low rough means you can err off the tee and recover reasonably simply.

All in all a great 9-holer with some nice views of Dundas Castle and the Forth Bridges. Added bonus of golfing with dozens of pheasants!
