Challenging!
Aug 2019
A well maintained, challenging course but be warned - stay on the fairway! The bunkers were a little sodden owing to the wet weather but the greens were soft and true. The third hole runs alongside and beneath the Erskine Bridge, provides an interesting second shot to the green at the foot of the hill. Potentially, big-hitters might even make the green from the tee...!
The course is in a lovely setting, running near to the bank of the river Clyde

Challenging golf course in very good condition
Jul 2018 • Friends
We played here on a very sunny Sunday. The course is in very good condition, very well organised and the greens are excellent. It’s quite a tight course and the rough is punishing (I have never lost as many golf balls as I did on the front nine). It’s why I have rated as 4 stars instead of 5 as I felt you were often being unduly punished. There are also many bunkers - very well -positioned to catch your ball. Enjoyed my round.

Superbly designed and well maintained Golf Couse

Before setting out we downloaded the GC App which gave a detailed layout of each Hole, updating distances to green from the fairway etc.

The Fairways are well laid out, a copious amount of Bunkers placed in strategic places. The greens are well maintained and very slick.

An excellent course to play.

Stunning Championship course.
Jan 2017 • Solo
The course has only been open for approx 6years yet it looks stunning with Fairways, bunkers and greens in perfect condition.

The course Manager & green staff maintain this course in tip top condition condition and in my opinion, one of the top courses in the West of Scotland.

The course is open 365 days and temp Tees are in place on very few holes. A real bonus.

There is a handy app that is great for 'flyover' views and exact distances to the heart of the greens.

Today is Jan 3 2017 and the course is playing great.

Very Good but exceptionally Long .....
Mar 2016 • Friends
Played here for the 1st time yesterday, this "Championship Golf Course" is great but at over 6,500 Yards it's also extremely long ... it's a 'MONSTER' of a course!
Relatively new, it gives the impression of a much more 'Mature Parkland' course because it's built around 250 year-old chestnut & beech trees. All Tees, Fairways & Greens are immaculately manicured ... Fairways are wide, Greens are large, fast, receptive & of an exceptionally high standard. Bunkering is strategically placed & provides a challenge throughout your round here, like everything else on this course, the Bunkers are HUGE!
The courses real defence though is sheer length ... every Tee & Approach Shot has to be hit with real venom to have any chance of reaching the green. This course would be a challenge for any skill level & it's impossible not to enjoy playing here but I wouldn't recommend it for beginners!!
Staff are friendly & welcoming to visitors ... we were lucky & took advantage of a ‘Deal’ here & played for only £17:50, the usual Green Fees are £40.
The Locker Room, showers, etc. are clean & of a high standard.
