Very Very slow pace of play

played on a Friday afternoon with my son pace of play was absolutely terrible waited on every tee up to the 10th. Managed to get through an elderly couple then got stuck behind a group of 4 guys who I think were playing there version of the ryder Cup. The greens had been cored and sanded so putting was a hit or miss don't know what they were doing but they did it very slowly. Had to give up at 13 .we aren't fast players but i was losing the will to live don't think i will bother with this course again

Braehead GC 28/10/20

On arrival at the course we were informed that the greens were being “Hollow Tined” but there would be temporary greens in operation where the grounds men were working.
This was not the case in the temporary greens..
We were unable to complete 3 holes and had to skip 1 (par 3) due to the work on the greens. Further to this a lot of earth was left on the greens after raking making some greens impossible to putt.
Signage on the course was inadequate leading to confusion at times as to which hole was next.
This was disappointing as when I last played, albeit quite some years ago it was a very pleasant experience.

Just lovely

The course looked lovely. The catering was adequate & staff friendly. The other players using the course were friendly & courteous to those of us for whom it was the first time.

A varied parkland course with magnificent views.

Older players might find some of the hills in the mid part of the round hard work.

Braehead Alloa

The golf course was in very good condition with the scenery as a fantastic backdrop.Tees were a bit tardy,fairways were excellent and the greens in good condition although local knowledge of borrows on greens a big advantage.My advice play to putt from below the hole would give you a chance as borrows could be severe. An excellent test using most clubs in the bag on a wonderful ,tricky course. Thorougjly enjoyed the beautiful scenery with Ben Lomond in the distance.Glad we have played here.

Memories

Hit my first ever golf shot on this course over 40 years ago. Youth membership was 7 pounds. Course was in excellent condition. Back 9 have improved beyond. Recognition. The 8th for me is the best par 3 in Clackmannanshire. Not been at Braehead for years. Will be back soon.

First time at Braehead Golf Club

Paid £13 for green fees, compared with £20 as a visitor. Quick welcoming chat in the club house and was informed could play off as I wanted. For as early in the season the course is in great condition, greens almost fully recovered from early season plugging, yet still putted true.
Was a bit on the windy side, not the courses fault, but this certainly made some of the par 3’s hard. One of which is cruel to have is such that it all goes left if you are a little off and it runs in to heavy rough, come on give us a chance.
The course starts flat, then gently climbs in the middle and finishes flat. Made for a welcome first game in 9 months.
Will 100% be coming back.
