The Cally Palace Hotel features a private golf course that is carved from the scenic parkland that surrounds the hotel. The course closely follows the natural contours of the landscape and utilizes the towering trees that dot the terrain. Golfers playing the course will have the opportunity to behold panoramic views of Cardoness Castle, Rutherford’s Monument, and the Fleet Estuary. In addition to the spectacular scenery, the layout offers a challenge for all skill levels with hidden burns and water hazards throughout provided by the Cally Lake. The Cally Palace Hotel also offers a practice area and putting green for golfers to use. Conveniently since the golf course has no members or competitions, it is rarely ever crowded.

Disappointed

The course has never let me down before but the greens were poor and some of the fairways were uncut. It’s a shame really, great wee course but lacking a lot of TLC

Great Find

Found this course while on holiday in the area, it’s attached to the hotel therefore there’s no clubhouse or professional shop, but nevertheless that doesn’t detract from the experience. Well presented with magnificent trees along the fairways with heavy undergrowth (many lost balls), greens are good and relatively flat throughout the course. Definitely will go back if I’m in the area again.

Driver won’t be needed all the time

What a course! Gear up for a few crackers. 1st and 18th was a 7 iron and 56 ! Position is Critical. Nice mixture of long and short on par 3/4/5s. The cabbage is deep. Don’t bother looking if you hit one in there. Hopefully they keep watering. Some greens getting badly burned. Best value for golf ever found. Staff at reception were brilliant. Same for lads in the 19th. Look out for the par 5 13th. 4 iron then 2 9 irons . Yep at a par 5! Snake like hole with. Pretty much no fairway and water before it. Will definitely play again

Back at Cally !

Always love playing this course, feel like you can always score fairly well but the par 5s are very challenging .
Par 4s all reachable in 2 and par 3s also not overly long.
Course very playable if slightly wet in a couple of places and greens still very decent for time of yr.
Love it !

Lovely Tuesday afternoon

Really enjoyed our round and weather conditions kind. Course layout is lovely, not too long or hilly. Only complaint is greenkeepers had cut grass on fairways when wet and left clumps everywhere.
Such a shame

Beautiful parkland course.

Played course this time after a dry 6 days. Just a couple of soft areas and slight water damage on a couple of greens. Course in great condition and greens nice and fast. Really enjoy this course when in this condition.

Great course let down by lack of maintenance

Iv played this course several times in the last 2 years and unfortunately it seems to be deteriorating more and more every time I play which is a huge shame because the layout and scenery around the course is excellent

Beware of par fives and the third.

Some heavy rain day before but only 3 and 4 boggy..The second par 5 should be abolished under the Geneva convention as this time I increased my score at it to 11. I hope I did nt hit a red squirrel with my errant drive. Fairway narrows to twenty yards and there are a few other holes with rather narrow fairways when you think they would want to encourage custom with an easier course. Good chance of hitting a tree on the 18 th but guess the squirrels will have learnt not to live there.
