First time playing this course and it wont be my last what a quality course it live up to its name the little hidden gem tucked away in the hills would recomend this course to any golfer out there
Course worth a visit
Course in great condition and holes good design for average golfer. Not long so big hitters might be restricted to drive and wedge!
Lovely course less burnt than most courses and greens in great condition will play again soon
All the gear but no idea
This was my 1st time playing Balmore Golf Club, having read great reviews on it. As I was out for a quick round by myself I selected what was showing as a quiet time on the system. So I will start with all the many positive points. Great staff, lovely course with immaculate greens, great facilities including an amazing practise area, all in a terrific setting. Now.. i aint no tiger woods, i play off of 21...but i really think clubs should start to vet players and check they actually have some sort of golf handicap (other than their clubs) or are at least members of a club. In fact just anything to show they have an idea of the etiquette of golf!. The 2 'players' in front of me did not hit one fairway all day and even though I was standing alongside them at every tee, they did not even look in my direction, they did not ring one bell at any of the holes with blind shots and did not shout 4 when almost nailing me with a 'drive'. I know clubs need income.....but come on.....these 2 guys were a total nightmare and spoiled what could have been a great 2.5hrs on the golf course and not the 4 it took me !!! Yes, 4 hours to go round a short par 66 course. Total nightmare.
Great golf experience
The course is in great condition as you might expect towards the end of June. No par 5s on this course so the 66 is a real challenge. Some of the par 3s are really difficult and you do well to get down in three.
Well worth a visit.
Balmore golf course is a unexpected gem of a course,only let down was it doesn’t have any par 5.
Course is in great condition and staff are very friendly and professional. Would recommend a must for any golfer.
This has to be one of the best courses I have played this year. Well maintained course with challenging par 3s. Friendly staff both off course and on it. I will definitely be back to play this one.
Made very welcome at the pro shop and clubhouse. Pro made us a morning coffee! Course was n very good condition although the greens could have done with a cut. Very picturesque with no par 5's and 6 par 3's. Some quirky holes with shared and cross-over fairways but a good range of different challenges. Early on four of the first 5 holes are around 400 yards. All in all a great day's golf and we intend to return.
A great course. Found the first 9 a little straightforward but the back 9 really challengIng. Greens in excellent condition. Had a good 4 some game. Clubhouse facilities great. Would definately go back.
Great setting, lovely holes even although the course is a bit hilly. Great value for money
An enjoyable course for all
Had a lovely day at Balmore. My daughter and I were met by a club representative who made us welcome. Tee off tome was bang on and we got round in 3 hours 30 minutes. Course was in good order and fun to play. A few blind holes are included so would hope to score better on my next visit.
Absolutely brilliant course. In perfect condition, especially the greens.
Played this course on Saturday 17th March after a week of prolonged rain/snow but you would never have known. I was expecting the worse but conditions underfoot were totally fine. I think there was only one wet area we came across during our round.
On the day we played it was very cold with occasional snow showers but both myself and my playing partner had a fantastic mornings golf at Balmore.
I would highly recommend this course and can imagine it would be superb on a warm summers day.
Good short, varied course
Course was in great condition and was excellent value for money. If I hadn't got a deal though, I doubt if I would have paid the full green fees. Preferred the front 9, the two back-to-back par 3s at 15 and 16 crossing over each other didn't do it for me, but 18 is a lovely hole. Course looked great in the autumn colours.
Six par threes a great feature
Course in great condition considering how wet it has been recently. Greens were very good. Staff welcoming, food good.
No par 5s !
A great course for those who find long par 5s a challenge - there are none. The course has a lovely layout, with a nod to the Azaleas at Augusta on a couple of holes. I've played it a couple of times though and it can be tight in places.
On the last occasion the only spoiler was the couple in front who were not in any hurry to beat the rain !
Bar staff and golf pro very friendly, certainly worth another visit.
