Frozen Mid winter is not the best time to play or review this local course. Like very many parkland courses in Scotland it hold too much water in the winter months and is only at its best in Summer. However the course is long and very well laid out quite open and so very playable for all levels of golfer. It’s a bit rough round the edges especially in the wet winter months but those who brave the weather on a cold bright winter day are usually rewarded with unexpected views across Lanarkshire to Glasgow and beyond. The layout and fabulous vista are spoiled slightly but as unsightly electric sub station and associated power lines but this does not impact up the golf or take away from the course layout. Quite a few long relatively open holes which are well designed and laid out. The course could be better manicured and surroundings tidied up a bit but overall this is fantastic value for money and a really good walk with panoramic views but best choose a warm dry day in Spring or Summer as it is very slow draining heavy underfoot in places. All things considered this is a very welcoming , under rated and enjoyable test of golf with a nice modern clubhouse and good parking facilities. It’s never too busy and rarely closed even during bad weather and was ideal for getting some welcome fresh air and exercise during the current lockdown period.
Greens immaculate for time of year. Winter tees ok, fairways very boggy, had to move ball to side which is fine. Overall good value for money and great condition for time of year
Welcomed with very friendly staff today . I never got to finish my round as the weather had taken it toll on us and only managed 7 holes. However weather aside the course is first and foremost so easy to get around . Greens were outstanding even for the very very bad weather it had taken . Lovely layout of the course and I’ll be coming again very soon , weather permitting
as it was saturated, i did not see this course, at its best. well draining greens.
Nice course. Great views. Course management needed. Keep drainage work up and greens will come good. Ask members to repair pitch marks. We will be back.
Course has come on and the decision to cut back the rough in places has made it more playable and enjoyable.
I called at 8am due to torrential rain to ask if I can reschedule. The guy I spoke to said it was light rain (it was torrential) and he ‘didn’t make any money from Golf Now bookings. Now considering the course was empty, I assume £20 was better than nothing but made to feel like a 2nd class citizen. Asked if I could reschedule and was told to contact Golf now. Basically forced to play but had to come off half way as the weather was unplayable. Never again
Had a great day. Man at reception was very friendly and helpful. Course was on great condition. Great course but hit the rough there's no point looking for your ball.
Course itself is great, and I’ll bet it’s amazing in the summer. Greens are excellent, especially for this time of year. Clubhouse looks nice. Fairways are like an actual swamp, and you need a mat to play off them or you hit from semi rough. Never actually played a course so soft underfoot. Will be back in the summer months when conditions improve.
Great course, only fault would be its slightly straight but that's me being picky, in great condition and definitely worth a play.
