Great course for trouble free round and beginners

Good course for learners and beginners. Very playable. Average golfer standard is likely to be mid to high handicap so pace of play can be slower. Greens in good enough condition as were fairways. Tees a little beaten up but they need rain like everywhere else. Overall good experience.

It’s what you pay for

I’m not sure they totally manage people playing 18 vs people playing 9 and teeing off on schedule.
Maybe more aimed at the occasional golfer than a club golfer.

It seemed quite sandy, generally the course was good and interesting enough for the average golfer though.

Don’t be put off, have a visit

Although it’s in the mearns and you may have pre-conceptions cast them aside and get it booked . Lovely course, well kept and staff friendly as a first time visitor.. Only negative I would say as a strong salesman nobody encouraged me to join after a good round.

Mearns Castle Golf Academy - 10 September

Mearns Castle Golf Academy 9-hole course is a short course but good test of golf. Although a short course, it includes a par-5 often not the case with similar 9-hole courses! The current layout keeps players of all abilities moving round the course!
