Genuine and honest

I booked within an hour of playing because of work constraints worried wouldn’t get in 18 holes. Fantastic reception pro shop the members I met (including ground staff acknowledged me) a huge plus in my 1 player persona..greens were sanded that very day for the price no quibble. I found plenty of room for error fairways (on the few occasions) within my round some lovely views I respectfully suggest some easier pars achievable some accuracy demanded with small greens.. I will revisit and demand more of myself on I hope easier putting surface..no complaints whatsoever enjoyed every moment. Loved 17 was slightly left thinking bunkers protecting green not so further than u think shot over trees to 7ft pin huge smile on my ego..genuinely looking forward to revisit.must say members allowed me through & after apologised for not letting me join them as they were playing for money obviously saw me as a threat (trust said members are laffing) afterward bar food excellent was round in 3hrs with time to eat cannot thank u all enough. Enjoy a lovely course. Easy access Glasgow or Edinburgh..paul from Manchester

Previous reviews are correct

Had booked an early tee time but unfortunately the course was like a scene from Brigadoon with a heavy fog all over.
The guys in the pro shop where very welcoming and gave us the choice to play or not, the shared view was that the haar should lift by the time we got to the 3rd tee, so we teed off hitting into the abyss.
Started with a par/bogey so playing blind isnt that bad, by the time we drove up the 3rd the sun was burning through.
The course started to show as being in great condition, the fairways in great condition and although the greens had been dressed they still ran true.
Memorable holes
4th , nice dog leg with an elevated green into the corner, watch out that the gps shows a burn running across the fairway but its mainly underground. Out of bounds to the right the full length makes it a bit more challenging
5th A nice short par 3, tons of green beyond the bunkers
10th is a very good long drive hole par 4/5 dog leg left
15th is a nice short par 4
16th a longer par 3, 200 yards of the yellow
Overall the course layout was great , plenty of trees but the fairways are generous
A very nice clubhouse for a drink after and very helpful staff
A definite course we will return too

Shotts GC

When we arrived it was very foggy - so visibility was limited - this however improved as the day went on. The course was in good condition with a pleasant setting. It was quite undulating but not a difficult walk. Some very good and challenging holes and maintenance was generally good. The green were basic and not to USGA standards but they were still playable and ran reasonably well albeit slow. The clubhouse looked closed for catering and drinks but it was a Monday and the traffic on the course was light. Overall a very enjoyable round with friendly staff and local golfers.

Avoid

Was due to play & Shotts today. I booked a tee off time via golf now. When I reported into the pro shop 25 mins prior to the booked time, I was told that the club wouldn’t let us play. This was due to non members not being permitted to play at the weekends.

Extremely frustrating given GN is advertising tee times for Shotts most weekends - surely the club would put a block of some sort on the site.

The club were not bothered about this and simply just turned both us away as if it was nothing.

Seriously poor from both GN, and Shotts.

Very good

Very nice course. Couple very hard holes but nothing too major that should put anyone off. First time playing it and would definitely change the way I played some holes but the actual course is very good

Really nice course.

Very friendly young lad at the Pro Shop, his pleasant helpful manner and a good warm welcome sets up the whole experience. Yeah it was wet, Shotts isnt the best for drainage, but it's a course I know well and it's just the right balance of challenge and reward. Hilly in places but nice views of the Lanarkshire countryside and some lovely driving holes.....the 6th and the 11th stand out for me. Greens were let down by some standing water but in the main were receptive to confident putting. Definitely 9ne 9f my favourite courses.
