Good course

On the day of play the staff had just put lots of sand on all of the greens. The pro said the website should have warned us? Did spoil it a bit. Other than that it's a nice course.

Very nice course

Really enjoyed this track, challenging layout but quite forgiving. Only negative was a 4 ball on last 5 holes never allowed the single guy Infront to play through, even on a short par 3, but you see this alot from older members, they seem to resent guests.

Hidden gem.

Had a great day here. Course was immaculate. Layout was very good and the off course facilities and food was top class. Best day out by far we’ve had with tee off times. Highly recommended.

Brilliant

First time playing Cowglen and welcome was friendly and polite . They inform you of practice area and range if needed . Parctice bunker with green and pins to get ready for the course as well as putting green with 18 pins to get the feel of the greens . The greens are absolutely brilliant and course is a challenge .

Hilly so best have power trolley and good shoes . Some long walks between tees and view from # 8 is awesome.

Would definitely recommend and play again.

Enjoyable course

Cowglen is a proper course, well maintained and with a lot of variation in holes. Although it appears to be wide open and have a lot or large greens, it is not at all straightforward.

There are quite a few holes that will be a challenge for par, but with a conservative approach will be straightforward bogeys - despite not being crazy long.

There's certainly a lot of holes where you are asked to take on a shot., either from the tee or on approach.

The par 4 3rd hole requires a good drive up the left hand side to carry the gully and from there you have a clear view of the green.

The par 4 4th (stroke index 1) really requires a left to right tee shot to have a decent chance of landing on the tight fairway. And again, you can get a clear sight of the green (albeit with a narrow entrance and over water).

The tee on the par 5 8th provides an excellent view of the hole as well as much of the south of Glasgow.

The course has a number of newer holes (14, 15 & 16) which I like the feel of. A dogleg par 5, with an approach over water and a short dogleg par 4 which still needs an accurate tee shot. Longer hitters may well take on both these holes. 16 is a par 3 with a large narrow green - that would benefit from a raised tee imo.

Some issues are there are quite a few holes with a reasonable walk from green to the next tee, and I found pace of play to not be particularly fast. Also it's a long walk.

There are also quite a few hills and a lot of greens where you may only see the top of the pin, and none of the pin if you play too close to the green (but I guess that is part of the protection).

Also unfortunate to have a road running through the 1st, 17th and 18th. Not really in play on 18, but can be a factor on 1 & 17 - especially following a poor tee shot. It's a free drop, but does spoil the natural lay of the land.

Great facilities with a large clubhouse and a driving range on site. Also a short game area and an old hole with maybe 140 yards to play from.

Great location and value

Really nice parkland with lots of interesting holes and elevation changes.

Everyone was super friendly and the head pro was very accommodating,

If your staying / going to Glasgow put it on your list.

This course was awesome!

The course was in great condition. I wasn't expecting a great course or one that would be that challenging so close to the city. But I was wrong. The greens were superb. Challenging subtle breaks that really tested your skills. A few blind shots where you aren't exactly sure how your shot ended up until you walk up to the green. The staff working that morning were all super friendly as well. The man working in the pro shop was extremely nice and helpful. If I ever come back to Glasgow, I will certainly be returning!
