Rating 0.0

The Arndean Course is the most scenic of Muckhart Golf Club's three courses with panoramic views to the south over the Forth Valley and to the Ochils in the north.
Muckhart Golf Club has 27 holes comprising three courses of 18 holes on a rotating basis. The Arndean nine measures 2,821 yards from the back tees. Par is 35.
Arndean's signature holes are No. 5 and 6. The fifth hole, aptly named "Top of the World," is a par 4, which has no bunkers but presents a stiff test into the prevailing wind. No. 6 is a beautiful long par-3 hole, named after "The Lonesome Pine," which guards the left of the green.

Great greens

Great golf on a well kept course and a very nice welcome from a friendly pro, always a nice touch!
Going to recommend a work outing there in the future and hope to be back soon.
Can’t think of anything that would have made the trip better.

Absolutely out of this world - views to die for and a wonderful course

This is the nine at Muckhart I would always want to play - every hole is a jem and the setting is absolutely out of this world.

The 5th a par 4 - 420 yards which with a good drive that catches the slope will leave a 9 iron, but don't be left of the pin - the down hill putt is scary.

The 8th a par 4 - 300 yards needs a drive down the left edge of the fairway but watch the gorse and pine trees, again the green slopes away to the right front edge - putts from above the pin need to be avoided.

We had a wonderful time taking photos and taking time to soak in the views.

Everyone we met were friendly and the clubs pro was so helpful - we can't wait to return and return we will!!

Excellent course set in magical scenery

The Arndean course is a wonderful course with great holes set in the magical scenery of a Scottish glen. Our favourite holes were the 5th a par 4 set across a sloping fairway to an elevated green and the 5th a par 3 infinity green 190 yards away. the backdrop to both holes was breathtaking.

Everyone was friendly - the golf pro especially helpful - highly recommend a visit

Majestic Muckhart

Played all three of the nine holes but the back nine the ‘Cowden’ has superb views of the hills and very dramatic scenery. Probably the best nine holes I’ve played in Scotland so far. Every keen golfer should pay this place a visit, amazing!!

A hidden gem

A well laid out, thou short layout. Fairways and greens were really good but could have done with yardage markers to assist first timers. Beautiful surroundings and views, coupled with the sunny weather, made this one of my most enjoyable rounds this year

Undulating course with great views

Like many courses, Muckhart has suffered due to lack of sunshine and heat, with the greens patchy here and there, and soft underfoot in some places. However, hard work on the course should mean it will steadily improve over the next month or so.

Course of 2 halves

The course is made up of 3 nine holes course but 18 holes are usually played over the Naemor and Cowden. The first is a classic parkland and the second, although parkland, is quite different in terms of the terrain. Cowden has some tees which are high up and a number of fairways involve playing over large valleys. The greens were in great shape. Would play again.

Fantastic Course with stunning views

Although closely located to Stirling and Perth, this course already feels like its located in the Scottish highlands. The course was in great shape and the staff and members were all really friendly. Definitely a must play.

Definitely worth a visit!

I'd already played the course with my partner in a Mixed Greensomes competition and we were both keen to play the course again. We enjoyed our return visit very much. The course is pretty challenging but a bit easier off the yellow tees!
We didn't use the off course facilities but we found everyone very friendly.

Diamond in the rough

Roads not the best to get to it but when you get there well worth it. Staff were great in the pro shop, courses were challenging and with great views around it. Cowden was in great condition, if I had one bad thing to say ( it's a very small thing) is that the bunker on the 9th on the cowden (which I was in lol) next to the green the underfelt all riped up from under the sand and sitting up above the sand and hiding the ball. But other than that great to play

Muckhart Good course but slow round

Great course, but short in places but very interesting.
Couple of slow groups in front of us meant it took 4 hours 30 to go round.
