What the club says: At 5851 yards, the course is short enough not to be tiring but tough enough to demand good golf shots.

In 1913, the original course was laid out by Robert Simpson, the professional at Carnoustie, of which the first four holes still survive today. Since 1950 the club has had an association with the MacKinnon family of Drambuie fame. It was Gena MacKinnon who bought Braehead Farm to protect the interests of the club, and leased the land to the club in 1950 so that the club could be extended to 18 holes. Although not a golfer, Mrs MacKinnon enjoyed performing the opening ceremony of the club every year. The driver she used has pride of place in the Gena MacKinnon lounge in the clubhouse.

Good course in good condition
Good course in good condition despite the recent rainfall. Greens were pretty fast but excellent. It is hilly at times but I like that type of course. The Club offered a price match for me as a visitor and at ?15 its good value. All in all a worthwhile day.

Nice wee course. Very hilly in places but not too many blind shots. Greens pretty good, course in good condition overall despite being late in the season.

Got a good welcome for the pro. Would play again ????

Challenging and hilly course but very well maintained, Lush fairways and well tended greens. Several dog legs lead to challenging holes. Good mix of short and long holes. Look up the 17th is great.

Played it twice on holiday. Very hilly, great views and some good holes. Friendly and helpful staff and inexpensive when staying locally. Cons were too many drive & wedge holes although the par 3s offered club diversity. Excellent practice facilities.

Shortish but tight and hilly with some narrow fairways but in beautiful condition, played out my skin to record my best ever score here. Try it.

Very tough greens, fast with a lot of breaks in them. Good fairways where positioning is vital.

THE CONDITION OF THE COURSE WAS EXCELLENT BUT LOCAL KNOWLEDGE IS A DISTINCT ADVANTAGE WITH TROUBLE AWAITING ANY SHOT TO THE WRONG SIDE OF THE GREEN OR FAIRWAY.

Course was on temporary greens but some of these were good. Course was wet but when the rest of the UK is under snow happy to play and they let us on for half price as well. Enjoyed it.

Very scenic course with some challenging holes. Most greens affected by disease at the moment, which adds a few strokes to the round!

A very good test of any standard of golfer, course always in great condition due to time put in by head greenkeeper and his staff, greens are slow until about June when they speed up considerably,some tricky holes and the 9th, 16th and 18th are as good as any I have played, here or abroad.

Charity day, so looked after us well. Played this course many times over the past 3 - 4 years and they maintain a very high standard. Plenty of variety in the course no two holes are the same, unlike a few courses I have played on.
