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!

Rakes for bunkers

Bunkers poor. No rakes which is surprising as would be inexpensive to supply.

You're not allowed to rake bunkers because of Covid.

No rakes, no removing flags from holes.

Means Castle Golf Academy

This is a good 9-hole course with several par-3s and 1 par-5.. It has a good mix of types of hole for a 9-hole course and is straightforward to play. The layout was changed some years ago to speed play up and this has worked well to ensure a steady pace of play even on busy days by judicious use of the par-3 holes.

Decent 9 hole course

Enjoyable nine hole course. Four par 3s and one par 5. A decent challenge for the average golfer and nicely laid out.

My only criticism would be that the fabric of the course is a little shabby, for example a lot of unrepaired divots on the fairways. I don’t think this reflects the efforts of the staff, rather an indication of the course being well used and a victim of its own success in that regard.

I’d definitely play again and would recommend it.
