The Arndean at Muckhart Golf Club
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.

Played here a few times but not recently.The scenery is stunning and the course provides many holes to take on with good birdie chances.The only disappointment was the state of the greens which were the worst I have played on in many a year.This was partly down to many of them having been cored and not filled with sand and rolled in many areas.
Played Muckhart on 16th Oct 2020, what an absolute midden, greens were cored and without doubt the worst attempt at coring Iv ever seen in my life an utter disgrace, the front 9 can only be described as a junior 9 it was shocking and that was without bringing the greens to the table, Pro told us “it looks hilly but it’s no” pure lies one of the hilliest courses I’ve ever played, all in all stay well clear of this dump!!
1st time playing the course,excellent day,would definitely play again
Very well looked after course with good drainage. Your given a rake at the start of your round to keep the bunkers in play. We played 18 of the 27 available. Rough can be unforgiviing, there's a few hill climbs and the greens are testing, but that all adds to the fun.
Sunday 27th September
There was an open Texas scramble and we were booked to play on the same day without prior warning. Play was extremely slow and the course very busy.
Would have avoided it if we had been warned.
Once again lived up to expectation
Playing here regularly as it’s a great course with the choice of 3 different 9 holes all in great condition.
Half good, half bad
Our front nine was the Naemoor set of holes, which were fantastic, not much more needs said.
However, after the turn we played the Cowden nine, which are a significant downward shift in quality.
It feels as though a few holes are shoehorned into a limited space. This means blind tee shots and approached to greens with signs such as "if you can hit past the bell wait until the green clears' even though you can't see the bell, and also it was our first time playing!
There are a couple of really nice holes such as the 2nd, 5th and 9th, however they were let down by others, particularly the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 7th and 8th which felt like playing a totally different, much lesser quality, golf course.
So basically, Naemoor good; Cowden not so. Would like to see what the Arndean is like, hopefully some other time.
7 of us played today and the course was in great condition everyone enjoyed the course weather was great all the staff were very friendly and helpful would definitley would play again.
OK, but not much to think about
Initially very impressed. Nice chat with Pro shop man and advised which two 9 holes we were playing. Fast greens and pretty backdrop of Ochils against a rolling landscape of hills was nice, but then I realised there was nothing to think about. Everything is fairly straight, so hit it and hit it again.
My wow factor is thinking back as to which holes were really tricky and how to play them next time. Well, there weren't any really.
Nice course for 'just a round of golf,' but I need a bit more mental stimulation and risk and reward.
Was my first time here course was great enjoyed it and will certainly be back and will recommend to friends.
Wet Day at Muckhart
Booked a round at Muckhart on a wet day. Although the weather was not in our favour we persisted and had a good day. Course was in good condition despite the weather. Some major changes occuring on one of the 9 Hole curses but does not affect the golf. Overall a good day out.
The greens were in excellent condition for the time of year . Staff were friendly . The newest course of the three 9 hole courses is Naemoor and has some interesting holes and pleasant views of the Ochils . The Cowden course used to be fabulous but the sad removal of a lot of the forestation has spoiled its appeal unfortunately. Overall 7 out of 10
