What the club says: Sitting more than 650 feet above sea level and offering panoramic views over Glasgow to the Campsies and the Arran Hills to the west, the course more than lives up to its majestic location.

Founded in 1888 and later redesigned by the acclaimed James Braid, it is the oldest golf course in Glasgow. The 6209-yard, par 71, moorland course is, despite its name, relatively flat but there are some tricky tree-lined holes, such as the par-3 fifth where you must overcome a loch to reach the well-protected green. Despite the name ("Braes" means "Hills" in Scotland), it is relatively flat.

Played as guest of a member not for the first time.
One of the best courses in the area for condition regardless of the weather.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area and looking for a course to play a round

This is a beautiful moorland, tree lined course worth playing. Tees fairways and greens all in very good condition. Some great feature holes. The Professional was welcoming and friendly, and recommended the best times to play during my visit to this area. I will definitely go back.

Never fails to impress

Work going on on the course by the green keepers as you would expect at this time of year but course played really well even with all the rain fall in recent days. The full greens that were on were true and fast temporary green could have been repaired better prior to winter play.

Hidden gem

I am a high handicapper, but I've played quite a few courses around central Scotland. This is one of the best I've played.
Beautiful tree lined course, with some elevation.
Beautifully presented, fairways very good, greens very good.
A good challenge, some nice feature holes.
Had a great day, Can't wait to play again!
