Get clever at Greenburn Golf Club, which offers a challenging 18-hole combination of parkland and moorland over 6,067 yards of par-71 golf. The golf course has sat at its current spot for more than half a century, ever since its members constructed it by its Latin ethos: "Per Nostra Opera" (By Our Own Endeavors).

A round of golf at the Greenburn Golf Club kicks off atop Falla Hill, as the first hole is called, a par 4 that measures 268 yards from the white tees and requires a shot toward the right side of the fairway. The long hole is Bent Head, the course's fourth, a par 5 that comes in at 536 yards - to add to the fun (or not), the hole is uphill all the way, though it can be accomplished in three shots. Finish things off on the eponymous The Greenburn, where you'll have four strokes to clear 361 yards, which isn't easy, with out-of-bounds zones on both sides.

Greenburn Golf Club's pro shop offers various packages, including 18-hole instruction that guarantees at least five birdies or you get 10 UK pounds back.

Nice course short but narrow opening holes.

In good condition considering the weeks of dry weather we have had.

This made it more difficult kicking the ball left and right of the undulations but added to the challenge.

will return In the near future

The weather was good we enjoyed the course, You would need to play it a couple of times to score well, tight fairways and lots of ditches and bunkers to avoid.

Great value, some really good holes with picturesque views. Course probably needs a few more weeks to improve as the weather has taken its toll on most courses and some of the greens have had new drainage.

First time on this course but been eyeing it up for some time. Great course. Well thought out. In great condition, helpful staff. Some members on the 7th tee were more than happy to explain the lay out of the course as I wasn't quite sure where to go.

I intend to play this course again soon.

The course had held up well considering the rain that had just fell, thought it would have been closed. However, we enjoyed our game :)

Enjoyed the four par 3 holes, all different.

Played with my wife on Sunday, 13th Aug. 17. Course extremely busy. But excellent pace of play took 3 hours 45 min. Foairways could be a bit soggy but fairways otherwise in good condition and greens good.

Very surprised to get a booking for a Saturday morning, especially as I only booked it on the Friday night. Weather was perfect and so was the course. My playing partner and I visited here for the first time and we will return. Course and greens in excellent condition and the variety of each hole a good challenge of golf.

we played a four ball and we all thought the course was in superb condition, the greens were very good for April would definetly come back and play again as there was some hidden burns and ditches that cost us some strokes and playing it again would be able to avoid them but overall a smashing little course and for £10 was well worth it.

A great West Lothian course which for the time of year was in very good condition. The only area which let it down was the condition of the winter tee boxes which were very poor and looked like they had been there for many years and not repaired. You could not put a normal tee into the matt, which made it very difficult to play from them. If you play this course during the remaining winter period then remember to bring along the Dunlop type winter tee set.

I look forward to returning in the warmer months.

Having not played Greenburn since the early 80s, I didn't know what to expect on my return last week. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great, with strong winds and driving rain for the first 6 or 7 holes. But it's a very fair course, not overly long with a few challenging par 3s and 4s. Great value for money.

Looking at the scorecard you'd be forgiven for thinking Greenburn is easily overpowered. Not the case. Big hitters will have lots of opportunities to hit short irons into greens IF they can hit fairways. That's a bit if. Accuracy is rewarded, and you'll have to be in play to hold the small challenging greens. Play the par 3's well and you should score well. That in itself is tough as the wind will need to be considered on all tee shots. Course in fantastic condition and greens running well. Good welcome in club house, and catering very reasonably priced. Greenburn has matured brilliantly over the years, with lots of work being completed to make the course drain very well.
