Great layout

Hi. Been really happy both times I have at Dougalston. I booked to play at Carluke on the 6th December but the course was closed with no notification from the course or golf now. Last I checked I hadn’t been refunded. Can someone please look into this for me.

Perfect for the Price

Played the course in mid December when the conditions leading up to it had been extremely wet. The full course was in play and was in excellent condition considering the weather. Would definitely recommend

Dougie

Such a challenging golf course is Dougalston, easy on the eye, as it such a lovely looking course, but difficult none the less. Course was very wet in places, greens were on, but not in great condition, but it is December where most courses will be much the same.

Round with my son

We booked this course as its quite close to where we live thought it was a decent price .there was t anybody on the course so very pracefull but having read previous reviews wasnt expecting much.thought the course wasnt too bad considering the time of year and no winter greens which was good and they were in good condition. Fairways a bit wet but has to be expected this time of year. Would like to play the course in the summer and would return.

AVOID IN WINTER

Firstly the course is a tough little course but I wouldn’t go anywhere near it if it’s rained and the winter tee’s are awful

First time playing and was walking around not knowing where to go.

In a whole it’ll be a good course in the summer but don’t go if it’s rained in anytime the week before your tee off

Course in poor condition

A high number of the tee boxes were out of use. About half the greens were covered in sand and all of them were bobbly with holes in them. Fairways were fine but tee boxes and greens were terrible. Hard to take the scorecard seriously because of the greens, some of them were literally covered in sand

Avoid - disgrace

1. I understand it’s winter greens however some yellow tees were among grass ankle height. Impossible to tee off.
2. Heavy sand on greens
3. Some greens totally unplayable
4. The 17/18th hole had 6/7 kids and a father running on the green hitting golf balls in every direction.

Absolute Joke of a golf course. £15 is cheap for golf but too dear for this course.

Played this course today in a 4 ball for the first time and even though I shot a credible 79 it wasn't enjoyable.

Poor course lay out with no markers for blind shots or distance markers on fairways. Also, winter greens were a mixed bag and impossible to putt on

Add the above to the fact the course was sodden underfoot to an extent that I drove a ball down the middle of the fairways at 1 hole and it plugged resulting in lost ball!!

Even the locals were slating the place for the state of it.

Cored and Sanded Greens

Course was very damp in parts due to recent weather however more so that expected. Majority of greens were also cored and sanded without any advertisement. Sanding of greens was also very poor with large areas basically unplayable. Won't be playing again
