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

 

Bearsden Golf Club

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.

Testing easy walking parkland course, many natural hazards to tackle with good greens. Practice area. Green fees £25 for a daily ticket, weekdays only. Catering Available. Secretary: Mr David Mitchell

Buchanan Castle Golf Club

18 holes 6059 yards par 70 Buchanan Castle was established in 1936 and is owned by the Duke of Montrose. It is a lush parkland course offering mountains, river and forest near the shores of Loch Lomond. It is a stunningly beautiful parkland course a place you will remember with affection. It is only a few miles off the direct route from the city to the famous attractions of the Trossachs and is perfectly served by the lovely village of Drymen. Visitors are advised to book in advance.

Balmore Golf Club

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 Golf Club

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.

Stirling Golf Club

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.

Helensburgh Golf Club

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.

Virgin Active Dougalston Golf Course

18 holes, 6040 yards, par 70 The Virgin Active Dougalston Golf Course, just ten minutes from Glasgow, is an ultimate golfing challenge that awaits you. The former Esporta Golf Course has a country club setting which is set within the heart of 300 acres of beautiful woodland.

Airthrey Castle Golf Course

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.

Glencruitten Golf Club, Oban

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.
