Balbirnie Park Golf Course
Balbirnie Park Golf Club serves as a prime example of a traditional parkland design with a layout that follows the natural contours of the land very closely. The gently rolling landscape lends some interest to the course but the undulations are invitingly gentle rather than being overly difficult. Long hitters will really shine on the golf course since it greatly rewards straight shots with some distance. Golfers should beware though, it is a tricky layout that punishes errant shots with thick rough and densely wooded areas. Balbirnie Park Golf Club finishes with what is arguably the most challenging hole. This par 5 requires two strokes, both blind to the hole, to lay-up before a heavily protected putting surface situated in front of the clubhouse. There are bunkers to the right and a large tree to the left as well as a burn that runs along the entire front of the green.

Misty outing at Balbirnie
Weather was very misty with no wind and the course was heavy underfoot from the recent rain, but the greens were in good condition and receptive to good a approach shot, the course has a good variation of holes with the mist seeming to lengthen them, the pace of play was good, we weren't held up at all completing the round in 3 hours. With the covid conditions we did not use the clubhouse but it looked modern and spacious.
Cracking Course and Even Better Clubhouse Hospitality
Booked this as a last minute thing through Golf Now as the sun was out, when we turned up Scott the pro was very helpful asking us if we had played before etc, telling us a bit about the course, we played the golf which was mixed but the course was in fantastic condition, a true credit to the green staff. When we finished we went in for post match refreshments and found the bar staff more than accommodating, we asked if they were serving food and we had just made it in time, the food was plentiful, freshly made and of an excellent standard, full compliments to the chef, thanks again for the warm welcome and see you again soon
Very welcoming staff, lovely golf course in great condition. Would recommend to anyone to play.
Went out here for a change of scenery and thoroughly enjoyed it! Course is in great condition. Plenty of challenges and different approaches to play.
Will for sure be back!
A real gem
Played on a Thursday, sun was shining birds were singing course was quiet and beautifully kept. All staff were friendly. The few members out on the course were very helpful. A really must course to play. Highly recommended, thanks Balbirnie
Lovely parkland course
We enjoyed our game, course in good condition for february.
But slow. Play round took us nearly 4 hours.
Booked this course on a whim for an extra game to finish off our golf week in Fife. So glad we did, course was in great condition and the variations of holes are great. Holes 12 through 16 especially.
nice course but weather not great a lot of leaves around being a parkland course but no one clearing them off the greens
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Course condition good. Shame the greens have just been sanded. but appreciate this needs doing
Not quite winter,still on proper greens,lots of leaves on the ground,but this to be expected at this time of year,didn't stop our enjoyment of a wonderful golf course layout,greens still in great condition and we had a great day.
The course was not very hard but some holes were very difficult to see. Weather was ok a bit of everything. Good maintenance overal. watch out for the wall at the 18th.
Played this gem of a course today with my friend. Greens were absolutely fantastic. Beautiful narrow tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the style of Augusta. Undulating fairways and interesting elevation changes make for the need carefully select the correct club on approach shots. The 18th is a truly memorable Par 5 with a real risk/reward second shot. Will definitely visit again.
We got this course on a hot deal This course is excellent value for money and in great condition.
The staff are very friendly and when they noticed 2 of us did not have caddy cars offered them free of charge
Definitely a must play if you are in the kingdom
Balbirnie Golf Club
Enjoyed a fabulous day out at Bilbirnie GC. The course was in great condition and the weather was excellent. The course was beautifully manicured and we were welcomed by very friendly staff in the Professional Shop. It was an annual visit and I can highly recommend this very friendly reasonably priced course to anyone. Robert Cooper MBE
Our day at Balbirnie
Course is obviously good but we picked the worst day for rain. It rained for 18 holes solid, soaked to skin, but because I invited visitors to play kept thinking it would cease but never did. Water on greens etc but we carried on and when we came off we were the only two cars in sight and noone else playing. Jokingly said to pro we should get discount for that and he laughed. Would love to bring the visitors back to play in better weather as I feel they would enjoy it better obviously. Walking through water not enjoyable but thought the course might have been closed probably was once we came off which would explain why nobody there.
Unfortunately we picked a very wet day and the hilly undulating course was hard work to walk. Some very interesting holes but a few that were extremely similar Helps to be a straight driver . Pleasant helpful staff and bar amenities we all we could ask for
