18 holes, 6041 yards, par 69
The golf course lies within the boundaries of original Kenmure Estate purchased by Charles Stirling (a West India trader) in 1806. A significant element of policy woodland broad-leafed species oak, ash, beech etc established at that time still remains today. The Bishopbriggs burn which meanders through the course all adds to an enjoyable and challenging golfing experience.
18 holes, 6254 yards, par 70
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.
18 holes, 5151 yards, par 66
Callander Golf Club is situated in the heart of the Trossachs with panoramic views to Ben Ledi. It is a par 66, 18 hole undulating, partially wooded parkland course with a small practice area, bar, lounge, shower and catering facilities. Visitors welcome and special rates for parties.
9 holes, 6014 yards, par 68
The golf course is a challenging par 68 for men and an equally challenging par 71 for ladies. The course plays as a nine hole layout but has 16 different greens. This makes the course ideal for people who only want to play 9 holes, but at the same time does not take away from the difficulty of the course for those out for 18. The club has a deserved reputation for friendliness and informality.
18 holes, 5542 yards, par 66, SSS 67
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.
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.
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.
18 holes, 5818 yards, par 68 (gents) 72 (ladies)
Founded in 1895 on its present site at the juncture of the Highlands and the Lowlands, Milngavie Golf Club lies in secluded woodlands yet is only 7 miles from Glasgow city centre. Players enjoy magnificent vistas from Ben Lomond to the north and much of Central Scotland to the east.
