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.
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.
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 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.
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..

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.
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.
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.
