Around Loch Lomond, the Trossachs and Central Scotland, there are some fantastic wee gems to suit all abilities, tastes and pockets.

Situated in Baljaffray, close to Milngavie, Windyhill is one of the foothills of the Western Highlands and rises to a height of 500 feet above sea level. On a clear day the course offers wonderful views including Ben Lomond which is visible to the north west. The course turf is between moorland and parkland in texture and there is a number of tough two-shotters among the holes.
Stirling Golf Club lies on a tilted slab of ancient volcanic lava in full view of historic Stirling Castle. Once a favoured hunting ground of Scottish monarchs, this ground has been known for centuries as the Kings Park. The course was redesigned by the great Henry Cotton in 1966 and offers some of the finest views in Scotland, covering the Forth Valley and the local mountains of the Trossachs, a national park. The magnificent Stirling Castle dominates the whole scene.
9 holes, approx 1168 yards, par 27
Airthrey Castle Golf Course is a 9-hole parkland course within the grounds of the University of Stirling. The relaxed approach means you can simply turn up, hire clubs and balls and enjoy the excellent view of Airthrey Loch and the Ochil Hills.
Nestled alongside the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond is a parkland treasure that has come to be known as Loch Lomond Golf Club. A private club for the exclusive use of its members and their guests, Loch Lomond sits on the historic Clan Colquhoun estate, which is steeped in Scottish tradition dating back to the 12th century. As Scotland is known as the birthplace of golf, Loch Lomond enjoys the history and tradition associated with golf in the homeland, yet the Club provides an experience uniquely its own.

Founded in 1907 from its original roots in the Scotstoun area of Glasgow, Balmore Golf Club has grown to become one of the most renowned golf courses in the west of Scotland. Designed by James Braid, the course boasts some of the most demanding holes to be found in the area. Set in stunning countryside, it is difficult to imagine that the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow lies only 7 miles to the south west.
Glencruitten Golf Course is James Braid's hidden gem nestling among the hills of Glencruitten Estate. It is a short, hilly scenic course set in the beautiful Glencruitten Glen on the outskirts of Oban, Argyll. Among the fauna, buzzards are a regular sighting, as are pheasants, heron and deer. Although not visible, there are the remains of a vitrified Roman fort, on top of the hill on the 4th hole, which is a listed ancient monument.
Clober, although a short course, requires skill in chipping to play it well with eight par-3s. The signature hole is a par 3 with out of bounds both left and right and a burn flowing in front of the tee.
The Carrick championship course, which is designed by Doug Carrick, is an inspiration. The 18 holes are divided by a fault line with the first nine holes in the Lowlands and the back nine in the Highlands, boasting stunning views of Ben Lomond and the great loch.
Helensburgh Golf Club was founded in August 1893 with an original layout that was approved by Old Tom Morris, and extended in 1905 to 18 holes. James Braid visited Helensburgh in the 1920's setting out several bunkers, which still catch out the golfers of today.
