Superb condition

Just luck I suppose but it took 4hrs 30minutes to get around due to slow group in front! Friendly staff and course conditions were excellent as always.

Lovely course

Really good course, a few blind holes and a shared fairway the only negatives. Greens excellent and tough bunkers. Need to be straight for a good score with no par 5s.

This is a must play

Very impressed and definitely going back. It's an hour drive through Glasgow from Ayrshire but we all agreed it's the best course we've played this year. Tricky, tight but good shots are rewarded.

Windy weather
Used cart

Foursome for £60 total

Excellent course with challenging greens.
Played somewhat longer than its yardage, no run due to soft conditions
Greens slightly iffy, almost recovered from hollow coring.
Biggest surprise was no food after 3:00pm, but kindly directed us to local Inn (which was pretty good)

Perfect weather
Walked

first visit

absolutely top course and thoroughly enjoyed it, only gripe would be the greens which had been spiked and not in tip top condition, otherwise fantastic course.

Beautiful!

An outstanding little gem of a course, first time playing and very impressed with Balmore. Some of the holes are beautiful such as the 11th and the 16th . Greens due to time of year where genuinely not too bad. Would happily play two rounds of this course a day.

Lovely location and neat layout course

Anyone looking to play a fabulous course that is not about length look no further. Great variety of holes well put together in a compact but lovely area. Refreshing to play a course that is playable yet challenging length for most club players. Clubhouse very welcoming with friendly staff and members. When we played it the course was still on winter conditions, greens were spiked and sanded but that’s necessary at this time of year, course will benefit over the season. Will definitely revisit and play again in summer conditions. Enjoyable day out for our group. Thank you guys was a pleasure.
