Earl of Mar Golf Course
Located west of Glasgow, Earl of Mar Golf Club overlooks the River Clyde with views that stretch beyond the Kilpatrick Hills. A scenic forest filled with more than 250 chestnut and beech trees shaped the design of the course, carving the doglegs and framing the greens. It has a traditional parkland layout that offers a fair amount of challenges balanced by generous fairways that are beginner-friendly. Many holes present interesting risk-reward opportunities where good strategy and some skill will get you far, but they are not too punishing if you are slightly errant. Weaving through the trees requires accuracy and numerous strategically placed bunkers emphasize its importance even further. There are only a few holes that play right alongside the river though golfers will enjoy scenic views on almost every hole.

Everything was accommodating and spectacular. My only wish would be that they had better rental equipment. Would have loved to be able to play somewhat similar to my normal game. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic experience!
Played on Saturday 06/08/22 course was in excellent condition and the young man at the golf shop was so helpfull . Will play the course again.
Top notch course
One of the best courses I’ve played recently. Tough course but was immaculately turned out. Greens in excellent condition. £40 was a bargain. No problems with taken trolly on..
Really don’t see where the negative reviews are coming from . Did get stuck behind a group of 4 who wouldn’t let s play though the whole round - very poor etiquette .
First class golf day
Course in great condition and as with the first time I played it, 5 years ago, I found the layout both interesting and challenging.
A nice course with some interesting holes.
No two holes are the same with some unique challenges.
Greens are a little inconsistent and some of the bunkers are full of stones which is was a bit disappointing.
Overall, a nice track which I would play again.
Played the other Saturday afternoon with a bunch of friends over from Ireland it was absolutely amazing. Young lad in the pro shop was unreal. We showed up with no balls he was still waiting on a delivery so he went to his car and gave us a pack each of his OWN callaway balls ended up chatting with him and members for 20 mins and missed our tee time. Course was astonishing great condition, superb layout, good tough track off of the tips really extends the course, greens were in good condition, bunkers were really good except from the odd footprint from golfers not raking them.
Came back in got a latte from the boy in the pro shop it was amazing, was looked after the whole day service was really great slipped the lad a tenner tip thoroughly deserved it was the only cash we had. Overall had a fab day couldn’t get any better for your money.
First time here will be back.
Feared the worst due to other reviews on Golf Now but thoroughly enjoyed our day. Greens were true, but as others have commented were on the slow side.
Had a great round, course was in excellent condition
Challenging Riverside / Parkland course
Enjoyed the round - the adverse weather meant we had the course much to ourselves.
NB: The confirmation from GolfPasss states that "trolleys are not allowed"
This is NOT TRUE - the Proshop didn't know why it said that and it must be very off putting for senior golfers.,
GolfPass didn't mention this during the actual booking process.
Well laid out course and would love to play it when it's in 'summer' conditions. A great test of the white tees.
Nice day at Mar Hall in excellent weather. Course in good condition and bunkers looking fine. Misunderstanding at reception for booking us in which resulted in a bit of a wait. Overall a good day in lovely setting on a great course
Reading previous reviews I was pretty apprehensive even tho I have played this course once before! The negative previous comments to that end seem very harsh! My friend and I are by no means pro golfers but thought the course is in excellent conditions, great fairways with plenty of run! Greens decent neither slow nor too fast! A very enjoyable course good layout and the staff were very accommodating, but as per previous comments they did ask if it was booked under golf now maybe just a wee glitch in the matrix that needs fixed! Other wise staff couldn’t have been more helpful! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE!!
Great layout but terrible greens
Basically the title, my local council course has greens that are much better than here which is very disappointing. Looked like they hadn't been cut in a couple of weeks and the cups had no plastic ring so they were kind of squashed in and unappealing to putt in to. Woule be a cracking course if the greens were up to somewhat of a decent standard. Spoke to a member who said they are always like that so theres not much hope of a return for us. Its a good day out if you've got the round on the cheap. Definitely not worth £50-£60 a round.
