Nick the starter is a credit to the club, helpful polite and a pleasure to deal with. The course was in good condition and you can see what they are doing to prepare it for the open qualifiers so it'll be amazing in the next 2 months

Classic links
Firm and fast fairways, lots of bunkers, quick and tricky greens. Tough course even in light winds today.

Great course, not so great welcome from the members though! Staff all friendly and helpful but the members are obviously not happy with the course being payed by non members as not one of them said hello back when we engaged with them....

Stephen, Ayrshire rated 4 out of 5 - Nov 6 2014

Third time I've played this course. Played the course on a very nice still day for November. Course was in great condition for the time of year and with the rain in the past few weeks the greens were very receptive so conditions really were ideal for scoring. Course isn't too long for someone who doesn't hit the ball a long way. Couple of erant shots cost me breaking 80 easily. Would recommend this course if you enjoy links golf. Facilities in the club house were being up-graded at the time of my visit.

Excellent test of golf, course was in great condition, greens were perfect but very hard to read, lots of three putts will be common on this course. A true test of links golf at its best.

Dougal/Glasgow rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 29 2014

Played this course on just after the Open Qualifier in July 2014. The pro and staff were very friendly and wecoming. The weather was kind and the course is an absolute gem with greens that are just fantastic. Look forward to returning at some point in the future. If you enjoy links golf do not miss this one

John W rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 8 2009

Championship standard course with genuine links layout. Unpredictable runs on the ball and intimidating bunkers. Excellent greens.
Not a course for high handicap players unless very determined.
Owned by the Glasgow Club - one of the 'name' courses in the area. The fee probably high for this reason.

Jim B rated 3 out of 5 - Apr 6 2009

Played late afternoon in April. Course deserted and weather beautiful - should have been top notch golf really, but I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience. Maybe because I was expecting dunes, sea/beautiful views and wilderness and the course is the opposite of that. Pretty flat for a links, couldn't see the sea and not that many truly memorable holes. Still it was well maintained and we were nicely welcomed, but you kind of expect that for £80 a round. I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time - or maybe it was because my golf stank...I'd give it another go because some courses grow on you.
