Bridge of Allan Golf Club
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.

Greens need help
Loved the layout - quite quirky which I like.
The condition of the tees, fairways and bunkers were great but the greens were really poor. Every one - even the practice putting green.
Bloke in the clubhouse was super friendly as were others I met on my way round.
Wont be back till the greens are sorted. Disappointing.
The greens are non existent shockingly bad every green was terrible
Greens are the worst I have ever played on this place needs some serious work done on it i would not recommend to anyone and I can’t imagine walking the course in wet conditions it must be dangerous with the steep hills sorry but I wouldn’t play here again for free
Can’t believe how poor the greens are, every single one of them were shockingly bad. The fairways were fine.
What a course!
Very challenging 9 holes. 1st tee sets the standards for the game! :-) Greens are in very good condition.
Very hilly so it's a good workout and we were glad it was only 9 holes :-)
Very friendly bar/club manager gave us a quick guidance on the layout of the course and a few tips.
Played with my wife (quite new to the game) and she scored her first par ever, so she was over the moon.
Wearing a hard hat on some tees would be advisable as they are very close to the greens, but we agreed that we would wear spacesuits if we had to just so we can play this course again.
“Braw wee course”
Beautiful wee hidden gem. Not for the faint hearted, very hilly but worth the effort
Turned up for a late evening round 30 years on from the last time I was there (11) the course layout greens and views are up there with anything, staff were so helpful and friendly, these greens are so good this course is a very good test for all levels
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.
Too hilly & not enough direction poles for visitors on the blind holes. Great views tho but wont return I'm afraid! Club never said a Ladies comp was on around our tee time so waiting around a lot.
yes course was in first class condition
1st hole is no par 3 though
apart from that the course and staff were very friendly
would recommend and play again
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.
