Loch Lomond and the Trossachs area of Central Scotland boasts a wide selection of great golf courses and golf clubs to suit all abilities.

Scotland experiences a year round golfing climate and throughout the summer months, the daylight hours last from around 5 am until about 10 pm at night. You can often play a round of golf in Scotland before breakfast or well into the evening.

Loch Lomond and surrounding area offers great golf with fabulous scenery. The cost of a round of golf can vary from under £5.00 to over £50.00 depending on where and when you play. It is always best to contact the club you would like to play to confirm play times etc.

Loch Lomond Golf Club is well known for previously hosting the Scottish Open in July each year, and attracts golf enthusiasts from all over the world. While you might need to be on a long waiting list or know a member to play at Loch Lomond Golf Club, the Cameron House Hotel recently built a new and equally worthwhile course - the Carrick, which was completed in 2007.

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

 

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.

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.

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.

Aberfoyle Golf Club

18 holes, 5218 yards, par 66 Established in 1890 the course is situated in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park on the edge of the beautiful Trossachs and offers stunning views from the Wallace Monument to the East and Ben Lomond to the West. A warm welcome awaits in the unique log cabin designed clubhouse.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
