Piperdam Golf & Leisure Resort (formerly known as The Osprey Course at Piperdam) is so named because during the summer months, Ospreys nest at the loch that the course surrounds. The event has become such an attraction that the Piperdam Osprey Centre, an observation facility for visitors, was built. The course has a parkland style layout with water hazards and out-of-bounds stakes. Golfers are quickly introduced to the challenges of the course with the par-3 first hole, which requires a careful tee shot over water in order to reach the green. In addition to the scenic course, Piperdam Golf & Leisure Resort offers a 12-bay driving range as well as boat and bank fishing on the loch.

Winter Greens

I was not aware that the first hole was unplayable and that we were playing on winter greens. Until l had paid and this information was passed over to me at the reception, just before I was due to tea off.

Poor draining

Water logged everywhere. 4 ball in front that wouldn’t let us through (2 ball) Greens so slow.

Only good thing about this course is the scenery.

Great Day

Loved the course and the facilities and the friendliness of the staff - especially impressive given that we’re emerging from Covid-19.

Course is well maintained and laid out and we really enjoyed plotting our way round it.

Lunch was excellent too. All round great day..

Perfect weather

Scenic and expansive.

( Price shown a single special price)
Lovely day, with glorious Scottish flora. The course was in excellent condition, with fast and true greens, and good width for driving. It's very much a case of two halves. The first is on the side of a hill, so every shot is rolling down one way or the other. The second is relatively flat, though holes are a bit samey. There's challenging length throughout, with water also to fly directly over, as well as ditches, burns, and small ponds at intervals. The back nine can be unexpectedly wet underfoot. That said, design is good--not excessively 'modern', so bunkers are strategically placed, giving several choices. Worth a trip.
