What the club says: The course, close to Loch Lomond and the picturesque village of Drymen, is set against quite stunning scenic backdrops. Designed in 1936 by James Braid, it offers players of all levels an intriguing but fair golfing challenge

Played the course for the first time. Course layout is very good will suit all handicaps. The only fault is that the bunkers need sand.but don’t let that stop you playing it,

Nice day out

Course played easy as tge greens were soft and smooth, nice flat walk good for all standards, course is as you see only a few blind shots, bunkers weren't great but greens, fairways and tees all solid.

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.
