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.



Most Helpful Review

Great Course.

Great Course situated just outside Dundee. Some great holes that are fairly wide so you can give the driver a good bash. Couple of blind holes where placing is quite crucial for your second shot. Great driving range that is highly fenced off running alongside the 1st hole. Give it a try and I think you will enjoy the variety of the holes.

Course was in good condition although the rough was a bit too long. Bunkers needed more sand as they were a bit hard to play out of.

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.
