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

 

The Carrick

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.

A warm welcome awaits in the unique log cabin designed clubhouse.

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.

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.

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.

Bishopbriggs Golf Club

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.

Westerwood Golf & Country Club

Nestling in 400 acres on the edge of the Kilsyth Hills, only 12 miles from Glasgow City Centre, Westerwood has been carefully designed (by Seve Ballesteros and Dave Thomas) to merge into the landscape. The resident professional and the Scottish National Golf Centre team are on hand to provide expert tuition and assist in the organisation of corporate golf events, which are a speciality. Without doubt the most spectacular hole must be the 15th, aptly named the Waterfall which is set against a 40 foot rock face.

Vale of Leven Golf Club

The Vale of Leven Golf Club was formed in 1907 and the course is situated on the east side of the valley overlooking the surrounding area with some tremendous views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. From the highest point of the course the view extends as far as Dumbarton Rock and the Clyde estuary..
