Golf

Good wee course, currently offering a great membership deal, course is being invested in which is feeding through to the condition. Like many clubs in the modern day the food and drink are just ok, and clearly the clubhouse and off course facilities are a drain on the running of the club!

Well worth a visit

Played in the Seniors pairs open, considering the weather we have been having the course was in great condition, well done greenkeeping staff. Well worth a visit if in the Stirlingshire area.

The course was very soggy after overnight rain, although the weather was fine for the round. The greens played very well considering they had just been prepared for winter.

This is a flat parkland course which gives you every opportunity to do well. On a few of the holes you need to be in the right place but in general you'll have a chance. The fairways were very easy on the feet, but at this time there wasn't a great covering of grass. We all had trouble on the par threes, but this may say more about our golf than the level of difficulty. An excellent course for the higher handicapper, not sure it provides a test for the low handicapper.

Played as part of a trip to the area 22/03/15. Great location and potentially a great course. However the condition of some of the greens (13th looks like Verdun) is an area of some concern, most greens suffered from some sort of feature be it crater, tractor tracks, pot hole, or dressing. The course could benefit from some signs highlighting the way although the lack of normal 11th was detailed at the hole and would be judged as part of the normal winter challenges a course faces.
Considering the condition, the £30 fee was in my opinion poor value for money.

With £ 42 green fees one expects something special. Alas the course does not give this back. Its fairly mediocre. Lots of GUR with no sign of repair in progress Bunkers with clay and stone instead of sand. Overall a disappointment. What is the signature hole?. I have played it today and cant remember a single hole tonight. Good 17 our of 18 greens. Poor probably 80% of the bunkers. General outlook "scruffy". Ask for a 25% discount before the round otherwise you'll pay to much.
