What the club says: There aren't too many golf course in Scotland, never mind the world, that lay claim to their course record being held by a former Ryder Cup player and Open Champion. Biggar, though, is not like any other golf course.

Great course. Not too long and relatively flat with some challenging par fives. Greens were in great condition considering the recent rain. Beautiful scenery all around too. Will definitely be returning again soon.

This is an excellent course well maintained through out the winter the greens have been in almost constant used bar a couple of really frosty days, I just took a season ticket out this season, being retired it's the best value for money I've ever had, I've met a lot of nice guys that play the course and was welcomed in joining them on the course, the staff at check in coffee hut are really friendly, the club house also for refreshments of lunch after your round, use of changing room and toilets available , I'm going to apply for club membership this year 2017 then work on reducing whatever handicap I get at the beginning. Plus you have the most beautiful scenery to look on to as you walk around the course, electric golf buggys for hire, then the pond to enjoy with swans and ducks. All in all a great place to visit. Oh last but not least if you have a caravan why not get it parked and give yourself a golfing holiday.

This course is a hidden gem. A well laid out 18 holes with first class greens. A very friendly welcome and good food in the clubhouse. I am going back and taking a number of friends with me. I can't wait to play it again.

I had a bad feeling about this course as I drove into the car park, but it turned out to be a far more pleasant experience than I expected.

This isn't a long course and anyone with a low handicap is likely to shoot the lights out here, but it has a lot going for it. The greens were pretty decent, and the fairways were as lush as any I've played on recently. It's also not that expensive, so it's pretty good value for money.

The bunkers weren't great though, and had I not been following the group in front I may never have worked out where the 16th green was. And this was after I'd already played my tee shot! The men's 18th tee is pretty well hidden too.

Overall, I think that this would be a good place to learn the game in scenic surroundings, or for getting some golf in after work, but there are better courses in the area

Biggar is a lovely parkland course. It is situated in the middle of Biggar Public Park and has a caravan site in the middle of the course.
The course is relatively short and is very flat. There are only two par 5's, both of them under 500 yards in length. The course however, is a good test for those approach shots from 180 to 140 yards in, and it is imperative that this part of your game is in good shape.
The payment area is simple with a little coffee shop, however, there is a bar in the Biggar Golf Club clubhouse.
At under £13 a round, I think it is good value for money.

Biggar is an easy course, very flat and the greens usually run true, so if you’re on your game you can walk away with a good score. A good course for a golf outing, for golfers with different handicaps. Here’s my hole-by-hole report:

Hole 1: Drivable par 4.

Hole 2: Par 4. Big fairway that’s easy to hit, with only a short iron to the green.

Hole 3: Difficult par 4. Cannot see green from tee, with a large bunker in the middle of the fairway. Green is running away from you and requires a clever approach to get close to the pin.

Hole 4: Very long par 4. Fairway is on 2 levels which can make your second shot very long if you don’t get your drive up on the top tier. Bunkers surround the Green.

Hole 5: Par 3. Large bunker in front of green, with the pin usually tucked behind it.

Hole 6: Dogleg (right) par 4. Bunker in the middle of the fairway will either force you down the left, or over the trees to the right. The green dips down and cannot be seen unless you are a big hitter off the tee.

Hole 7: Par 3. Large bunker to the front left of the green, with the pin usually tucked behind it.

Hole 8: Par 5. Stream runs across the fairways, requiring a good drive to clear it, and a brave long approach.

Hole 9: Par 3. Avoid the stream to the right and you will be ok. Green is at the back of the course, so if you’re long off the tee you will be out of bounds.

Hole 10: Short par 3. Bunkers surround the green, however at such a short distance, you should be able to drop it straight onto the green.

Hole 11: Par 4. A chance to get the driver out the bag after 2 par 3’s. Keep your drive to the right hand side of the fairway, and you’ll keep the bunker on the left out of play.

Hole 12: Par 4. Similar layout to previous hole, keep your drive to the right and the bunker on the left won’t be an issue.

Hole 13: Long par 3. It’s a difficult hole this one, it doesn’t look its yardage, so your biggest problem is your club selection.

Hole 14: Par 4 slight dogleg (right). Keep your drive to the left of the fairway and a middle iron to the open green will set you of for a birdie chance.

Hole 15: Par 4. Wide fairway give you a chance to slug your drive without much cost if it goes off target. Open green with small bunker to the right.

Hole 16: Par 5. Unless you can drive 350+ you cannot cut out the dogleg (right). A drive straight down the middle will set you up where you will have to play over the trees on the fairway, or lay up to the left.

Hole 17: Par 4 dogleg (left). An attractive green that can be reached from the tees, however you’ll be flirting with the bunkers that surround the elevated green.

Hole 18: Par 3. With the clubhouse to the left of the green, you want to hit the green from the tees. A mid iron is required, but definitely within range.
