Located just east of Glasgow, Drumpellier Golf Club sits at the west end of Coatbridge. Since opening in 1894, it has become one of the area's most treasured courses. The layout is challenging but it's still player friendly enough to appeal to a wide range of skill levels. The golf course's has a memorable finish, ending on two of its best holes. The par-4 17th is just 270 yards, giving big hitters the opportunity for a grand finish by reaching the green from the tee. Those who don't want to take the risk can play it safe and aim for the fairway. Drumpellier Golf Club's final hole, another par 4, tumbles downhill across slopes ranging from subtle to dramatic. Be careful of running out of the fairway or you'll face an even tougher approach to the well bunkered green.

Good greens

Course layout was enjoyable and although it was busy, play moved at decent pace. Greens were in very good condition and were faster than any other course I have played this year. Was also invited to join up round with two members who were good company and helpful in explaining course layout!

Very impressed with the condition and course in general. A touch longer than I’m used to but still very manageable. Greens were immaculate.

A Tad Moist

Despite the inclement weather the course held up well. First time playing this course in an unexpected location. Fairways were well kept and all told the greens were in good condition for the time of year. Happily play Drumpelier again in the spring.

Moist underfoot

Nice course, good value for money. A moist Autumnal round but some really nice holes. The par 3s in particular are really well kept and the greens despite being wet were in great condition. All in all a very enjoyable round.

Windy weather
Walked

Wetter than expected

Given the level of rain in the area in the day before it's not a surprise as most courses would have struggled but it was a surprise how wet the course was in places.

Tee times were running slightly late because of a number of matchplays in the morning that went to the 21st but pace was good once I got going.
