Designed by Old Tom Morris, Bridge of Allan is a nine-hole golf course dating back to 1895. It's a layout for vista lovers, offering picturesque views of the surrounding countryside, including Stirling Castle.

Watch out for the first hole, The Dyke. Measuring 223 yards from the back tees, this par 3 requires an uphill drive over a six-foot stone wall 175 yards from the tee to an elevated green. It's arguably one of the most difficult holes in Scotland.

Don't fret if you're a high handicapper. Though Bridge of Allan will push your ability to shoot low, it won't give you a beating, and there are some birdie opportunities.

The facility also includes a small practice area and nine-hole putting green.

Wet weather

Quirky

Heavy showers and pretty strong winds made for a very difficult not pleasant outing. Still, warm, sunny day needed!
This is just too much up and down, with difficult, sometimes blind drives, lots of slopes and trees, and tricky greens. Play with a member would be a great help.
And bring your best ball striking.

Loads of great holes but hard work if playing 18

Great wee course but first 2 holes are like a fitness workout. You climb to the summit but the descent is great with some superb scenic holes. Hard work if pushing a heavy manual trolley or carrying your bag.

Bridge of Allan

What a wonderful course, the first Tom Morris course I have played, wanted to play Eskanish whilst over in Uist but the weather was against us. Bridge of Allan is a 9 hole double tee course, quite a challenge and well laid out. Very hilly, but would not stop me playing it again especially once you have sussed the layout. A little Gem and well worth a visit.

A very pleasant but hilly 9 hole course

This lovely course is worth seeking out as it’s in excellent condition and the views are amazing . It is only 9 holes so you play it twice and the first two holes are very steep and hard going but if you don’t mind this you’ll Surely go on to enjoy the well looked after course . Nice small clubhouse and pleasant staff
