Fantastic

Warmly welcomed at the Pro shop. Nice breakfast roll and coffee. The course was in excellent condition and very dry despite recent heavy rain. Every hole is different on the course but the generous fairways make it very user friendly. The greens were superb. 2nd time I’ve played the course and will definitely be back.

Damp conditions but well maintained, if slightly disjointed, course.

The layout of Brechin golf course is somewhat unusual but was caused, I understand, by the arrival of the dual carriageway which dissected the course in 2. You play the first 3 holes then walk a bit to find the 4th tee. Here there is a loop of the 4th , 5th and 6th before walking across a bridge over the main road to find 7 - 17 before recrossing to play the 18th.
It was very damp the day we were there so conditions meant no run at all, but still lightning fast greens, which I have to say were in great condition. The slope on some of these was incredible, we found them very difficult to read! A real challenge to 2 putt to be honest.
I would like to go back and play the course on a dry day as I really liked the layout and feel I could do better the second time.

Brechin is worth a visit

Enjoyed paying brechin golf club, there is good variety to the layout, some testing greens that were in nice condition, found front nine easier than back, you have to walk a little between groups of holes divided and by crossing bridge over motorway but was an different experience, shame it was a little bit wet on the day with some drizzle but will be back and hopefully the sun will come out to play. Worth a visit and decent value.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course, it is in very good condition. The only minor gripe was the walks between some of the holes

Good Experience

The course is in 3 parts, holes 1,2 & 3 are in one field, 4,5,6 in another then you cross over a bridge, additional signage would benefit visitors here.
Generally well worth a visit.

Some tricky greens

Some short par 4s but sloping greens. A few tricky par 3 s. A few long walks between some holes. I liked the course bus as it straddles a dual carriageway the traffic noise was annoying on quite a few holes.

Great course

We went out in March, as expected course was wet, Brechin is a wet course by nature. It's a nice course though, well set out and challenging. Would deffo recommend. Its typically boggy this time of year so we expected that
