What the club says: The original Darley Golf Course seems to date from around 1910. The present course, with an original 'bogey' (par) of 71 was opened on June 9th, 1951.

If Darley is slightly shorter than Lochgreen it is certainly tighter with unforgiving heather and gorse hugging both sides of many fairways. A relatively benign opening only serves to accentuate the challenge presented by the subsequent holes, with a particularly difficult stretch coming between the 5th and 15th.

Darley is indeed a challenge demanding the straightest of tee shots to avoid the renowned Scottish hazards of heather, gorse and whin which abound.

Challenging, strategic and a true test of golf is how the locals describe Darley, which, like its sister course Lochgreen is also considered of the links variety. Darley is rated as the fourth most difficult course in Scotland to play to your handicap!

Lots of work

Played course numerous times.lots of work being carried out. Gorse removal is a bit extreme, this gave course some character. Think it's now getting a bit tame.

Dry conditions

It maybe a council course but conditions were really good despite the very wet weather one to consider this time of year if your home course is not playable.

Can't fault this course, greens were as good as some courses could only hope to achieve in the summer. All credit to the green keeping staff for having the course in such fine condition for the first week in January.
