Testimonials/visitors reviews

Cracking little course. Very well kept. Tricky to read how the course played but that added to the day. All 4 of thoroughly enjoyed our day. Highly recommended.” Visitor comments July 2020 

“a lovely club and a great course.” Visitor comments July 2020 

Greens were really good. Brilliant.” Trip Advisor review September 2019

The condition of greens and fairways was outstanding. Had good talk with course manager Gary who does an absolutely wonderful job in keeping it in tip-top condition. This is truly a hidden gem of a course and represented the best £20 spend of any I've played recently. Can't recommend highly enough” - Trip Advisor review July 2019

“Totally blown away by the condition of the course which is far superior to many off it’s 18 hole neighbours. Greens were smooth and true, fairways were lush and the course was beautifully manicured.” – Trip Advisor review September 2018


“Lovely 9 hole course! Oldest 9 hole club in Scotland. You have to play there.” - Trip Advisor review July 2018

“The greens were in immaculate condition, running fast and true, with multiple borrows and nuances that make getting to the green only half the story! A true credit to the green keeper and some of the best parkland greens I have ever played on, quite the compliment for a nine holer in the heart of golf country.  I would return here without hesitation. A real gem, and a test for all standard of golfers.” – Golf Shake review August 2018
