About

Holes 18
Type Private
Style Parkland
Par 71
Length 6266 yards
Slope 0
Rating 0.0

Golf course architect James Braid designed a 6,266-yard par 71 course on the 150 acres of rolling parkland beneath the Ochil Hills that are Alloa Golf Club's home. A test for even the most seasoned golfer, Alloa also accommodates high handicappers.

All golfers will enjoy the final four holes: two long par 3s split by two long and extremely challenging par 4s. Make sure to keep an eye out for the ditch in front of the 17^th green.

Alloa Golf Club dates back to 1935. It was built on the estate of Schawpark House. One of the most influential families in medieval Scotland, the Schaws were governors of Stirling Castle until the reign of James IV.

Facilities at the club include a locker room, snooker and a dining room with a lounge bar and large flat screen television. There are also several practice areas.

Lovely place to be

Rain was forecast but we only got some the last few holes. The course was immaculate if a bit wet underfoot. Could hardly get a bad lie here . The greens were slow given the amount of rain that has fallen in the last few weeks but the surfaces were very true.

We hardly saw a soul; nobody even in the pros shop when we arrived. We played at our own pace and three of us were round in three hours and ten minutes. We have played here two or three times in the last year and maybe the only thing negative is the sand in the bunkers is very heavy and, being wet, it was a devil of a job getting out of a trap. We shall return ; the views are quite exceptional too.

Not a great day out

Arrived to be told that the times were running late as it was their club championship that day. Started over 30 minutes late took about 5 hours to complete the round.
Staff in pro shop seemed totally uninterested and there was no communication as to when we were to play.
Course is nice but most greens were waterlogged.
I’d play again but wait for better weather and phone to check how busy the course was.
Shot an 83 which was nice

Beautiful Course

Small hills, fantastic layout and the greens were in perfect condition. Second time I’ve played this course in the last 2 weeks and I can’t say anything bad about it. I will definitely be back.

Great course

To find an excellent course on full greens ( except one ) and in such good condition at the end of December is a rarity. Some great holes , fantastic views of the Ochils . What’s not to like ?

Weather and locals spoil the round

Heavy fog and winter greens reduced the playability of the course. Course very quiet but held up behind a slow threeball who refused to let single through. Added 40 mins to the round. Poor etiquette. Overall not the best experience but could be a one off. Generally a good course.

The greens are the worst av played this year

Good points
Played this course yesterday,the course layout is good with some cracking holes,pace of play was good,never used the club house so can’t comment on that
Bad points
The greens are horrendous hardly any grass on them,all bumpy and your ball was just plugging on them if you came down with any hight in your shot,the fairway grass was as long as the first cut should be,so all in all won’t be back here unless drastic changes are made!!!

Good Braid Course

The course was beautifully greened up after the long brown spell, with smooth greens and grassy fairways. Some bunkers and some tees are under the weather, but this is a scenic, rolling, beautiful parkland (Scottish) course.

Lovely parkland course

Played here today, course was in mostly good condition, some bare patches, but understandable after the recent weather.
Layout is very good, tricky but fair course.
Don't agree with stroke index, but this is probably set for white tees,
Greens and bunkers good.
Nice clubhouse, but you need to be let in by staff.
Catering and staff very good.
I would recommend this course. We plan to be back next month.

Gem of a course

This challenging course is in very good condition and has plenty of doglegs and blind holes to keep first time players guessing. The greens were good , staff helpful and I would highly recommend it to anyone

Tough test due to course being very dry.

Played yesterday with my son and found it very difficult at some holes due to non receptive greens as course very dry. Enjoyed our day but very tiring with hot weather and course a bit hilly.
Staff and members were very helpful.

4hrs 28 mins, on a Monday - longest round in 40 years of golf

First time playing Alloa. Nicely laid out course with quite a number of blind greens. Greens not in that great shape but to be fair it is early November. What spoilt the day was pace of play. I was a singleton so accept I had minimal standing but a very slow playing four ball in front of me (with no one in front of them) refused to let me through. When they lost a ball and had perfect opportunity while they looked for it they simply dropped another ball (so not playing an official competition either)
