Balfron Golf Club
Balfron Golf Club is an 18-hole golf course that was recreated from its original layout by respected Scottish golf architect Robin Hiseman. The new nine-hole golf course was opened in 1994, and it was extended to 18 holes 7 years later.
The Baltron golf course is located six miles from Loch Lomond and 20 miles north of Glasgow. There are inspiring views of the local countryside, eerily reminiscent of playing golf in the Scottish highlands.

Played on a lovely sunny day, the course was in great condition.. Club member on site to sign us in. Just a few people on the course, so had a relaxed round. Beautiful location, would recommend a visit.
Great course in stunning scenery
Beautiful course with views of the campsies and Ben Lomond. Some interesting holes, not overly long and in cracking condition for the end of October.
We paid £15 and it was a bargain.
People we met in the 'clubhouse' we're very friendly.
Superb - can't fault it
I only 'discovered' this course this year. I can't believe I didn't know about it before. The course layout is fabulous - a great variety of holes which, I think, are Queens Course Gleneaglesesque. The condition of the course was just excellent, Immaculate greens and fairways and an army of greenkeepers around to keep it so. Very friendly members too. If you haven't played it, you are missing out on a great course, beautifully maintained, with stunning views!
Great course with stunning views and friendly members.
Played this course today for the first time, arrived at the course and spoke to one of the members and he said there was someone on their way who was also going out on his own so I waited and we went out as a two ball. Bill was very friendly and gave me all the information you need when playing somewhere for the first time. The course is in immaculate condition and the views are to die for. The fairways reminded me of links fairways wide and fast and with the hot weather we have been having the greens were hard and only the best hit short irons would hold the green. All in all a very enjoyable days golfing for a very reasonable price. I wouldn’t say the course is too challenging but you have to be prepared to use every club in the bag and pitch and run into some of the greens and to lay up on some of the fairways.
Hot day at Balfrin
Great course, very good condition, quite hilly so consider this when booking.
There is a burn running through the course which makes your drives challenging on distance , but enjoyable , greens and fairways are in good condition.
Allover very good course , no complaints!
Recent game at Balfron
Played Balfron on 31/5/17 after a recommendation and really enjoyed it.
A friendly welcome on arrival and we were advised we would be better going off in front of the medal was great advice.
The layout of the course was excellent and playable for all levels. Some short par 4s and longer ones as well as great range of par 3s. Views were fantastic and the condition of the course was excellent with a full team of green keepers working on it.
Only slight complaint was the pace of the greens. Very slow but smooth.
Without rushing round we took 3 hours 15 mins which on a warm day was acceptable rather than the 4 or 5 hours you can get some places.
Will be back again for sure.
course was in superb condition with stunning views of
the surrounding countryside ,great value for money and a very warm welcome.
well worth a visit
For the time of year the course was good. Some challenging holes but enjoyable.
The course is set high in the Trossachs and the views from every hole are spectacular so take your camera.
We met the green keeper and he was very friendly and informative.
The club house is very basic with all amenities and honesty box for fees and goods hence the fees are low.
Balfron village has many places for food and drink after playing very handy to the course.
We will be going back in the summer to see those views again.
