What the club says: Ballumbie Castle golf course's terrain sweeps and turns with no two holes the same. Most clubs in the bag will be used but not necessarily a driver off every tee, especially for the first six holes of the course where position is more important than distance.

The most difficult stretch of the course starts at the 10th, a par four with a burn running next to the fairway and a sloping bank to the right, as well as a pond to the left of the green. It is followed by a long 210-yard par three with water a big danger, then another par three at only 156 yards that can catch people out with its sloping green. This section of the course, though short, catches out many unsuspecting golfers. The 13th is a testing 535-yard, par five uphill and usually into the wind.

Beautiful Course
Played this for the first time. First 4 or 5 holes are very up and down. The 3rd is like Cardiac Hill. However, after that what a great course. Some great blind holes where you are aiming for the marker poles as there are some very long Par 4s. Fantastic finishing hole. Please give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

The course is well kept through out with good facilities and friendly staff. My bad point would be that there are a few cross overs and hikes to the next tees, gets a little annoying.

My dad and I played Ballumbie castle golf club on Friday the 1st of august 2013 on a warm sunny day. the course was in good condition and the greens were running fast and true the course starts with a dogleg left around the driving range which was followed by 2 more par 4s then a downhill par 3. The par 4 5th is a good hole with a pond on the left in range of all golfers. the next four holes are straightforward. The 10th is a delightful short par 4 with water punishing wayward shots. The 11th is a tough par three that needs a solid strike with long iron or hybrid to avoid water on the left. the green provides its own challenge as the green is large and has many undulations. the last seven holes are holes where accuracy is a must. Over all a very good day and at a good price of £29 for two ( including a bacon roll and a cup of tea)

Very good value in the low season. The course is better than many others I've played, and for half the price. Facilities are very good, both the pro shop and driving range.

ballumbie is a relatively new course but is now starting to mature. it is a testing course with a lot of
dog legs and out of bounds. holes 2,3,4&5 anything
leacked right is ob.
it doesnt have many long par 4s which suits us short hitters.
it is set out in three parts, pay particular attention
when finishing the 9th or you`ll end up on the 17th tee. thats my only fault with the course is the walk
from 9 to 10 and 16 to17
