Ballumbie Castle Golf Club
Ballumbie Castle Golf Club has an interesting and diverse layout where no two holes are even remotely similar. Located on the outskirts of Dundee, the course was a welcome addition since the area was mostly lacking in parkland courses. Golfers can expect to use most of the clubs in their bag, but not necessarily a driver on the first six holes where accuracy is more important than distance. Water hazards come into play on four holes. One of the most notable holes is the par-4 10th, which features a burn alongside the fairway, a sloping bank to the right, and a pond to the left. Ballumbie Castle Golf Club also offers a driving range and it is conveniently located less than two miles from Carnoustie.

Played this course for the 3rd time today and was shocked to find the condition of the tees from previous visits shame really as it’s well laid out and greens very nice.One more point is the new house build is getting a bit excessive nearly engulfing the whole course now.But everything else about this course just makes you keep coming back.
Been a, while
Was a member of the course around 12 years ago and it was a bit different today with the growth of trees and shrubbery and lots more houses round the course. Still an enjoyable day out with decent greens and good value for money. Friendly bar staff but no catering today was disappointing but new catering by end of month.All in all a good days golf
Balumbie Castle Course
An interesting and varied course
Quite a distance between some holes
Bunker sand could be better
Good clubhouse with excellent outdoor seating
Ample car parking
Would benefit from more signage to guide golfers there because it does not come up on satnav
Extremely good value and I have no hesitation in recommending
Ballumbie is a nice course but can't help feel a few of the holes have been ruined by the houses being built. There's constantly too much of a backlog of golfers because they don't space their tee times out very well which puts unnecessary pressure on the average to high handicap players when the group behind are say sub 10 handicaps.
It's a nice course and is usually always in great condition but they need to address the constant queue of golfers at certain points
Very nice course, we paid 14 pounds for our round each. Absolute bargain. Stunning for that price. Unbeatable, we were not held up at all even although there was 4 balls ahead. Really impressed.
Playing this course, the biggest disappointment were the greens. Everywhere else on the course is well maintained but the greens were terrible. It may be April but I would expect better and other local courses aren't as bad as this. Pitchmarked, whole patches where new grass has been transplanted, bare in others. All very bumpy. Disappointing
Winter Golf in Dundee
We paid £18 per person to play on Thursday 10th December, 2020. When booking in at pro shop prior to commencing, no mention was made that winter tees and greens were in use! In addition, the course was extensively modified to accommodate for the winter greens. Lack of signage around the turn on the modified holes was very frustrating! The course was waterlogged, and very muddy, and many of the temporary greens were unimaginably bad! We have played the course before and enjoyed it's challenge, but we're very annoyed to have paid £18 to play a muddy field.
Changes to course
We were disappointed to find that house building is encroaching on the course in various places and this has altered some holes and destroyed the peace and quiet of the more isolated areas. Despite the claim that no winter greens are used this was not the case although only some were affected. Poor quality driving range mats were being used for tees and these don't allow easy insertion of real tees. The greens were in pretty poor condition despite the favourable weather we have had.
This course was always enjoyable and this had certainly been the poorest experience we have had here.
Iv played this course a few times and it’s always been good. It says on there website no winter mats and full greens all year round but that wasn’t the case for this round full winter greens and the 13th hole a par five was split into two holes as the par three 12th wasn’t in play.
