Nice course, shame about some members

Unfortunately on the day we played the course there were winter greens in operation, but it was still an enjoyable round. Despite asking in the clubhouse we were advised we didn’t need to play from mats. That is until a member rather rudely and angrily told us this when playing the 5th. We had no issue playing from mats but the way this member told us was extremely rude and aggressive. Thankfully the other members we encountered were polite and welcoming, but attitudes like this are what hold the game back.

We are both keen to come back and play, ensuring next time the weather allows us to fully enjoy what the course has to offer!

Great course I've played here before and enjoyed it so much that I had to come back and give it another go although the weather has not been great recently the course was in great condition only disappointment there were three winter greens in play which unfortunately the green keeping staff hadn't informed the club pro but other than that minor hiccup thoroughly enjoyed my day here recommend this course to anyone

A perfect day out, enhanced by beautiful late summer weather. Course with beautiful views from the first tee. Beautifully maintained. Busy but didn’t detract from the experience. Friendly people.

Beautiful course

I have played this course a few times now and it is honestly one of the best courses around Glasgow. The greens are fantastic and the course drains really well in the wet, but is stunning when the sun finally comes out. Highly recommend playing a round here.

A Welcoming Course

Within easy travelling distance from Glasgow city centre.
A friendly welcome from the Pro whose shop is well-stocked. He was also around to serve us with the mandatory bacon rolls and coffee before our round!
Two of us teed-off on a pleasant sunny morning to play the course for the first time. We enjoyed the course .... don't be fooled by the number of par threes ....... it is still a fair challenge for most golfers and is situated in very pleasant countryside.

Hidden gem

Great, scenic little course in wonderful condition throughout. Not long, but a true test of short game with fast, true (and tricky)greens. Lots of par 3s but they were a particular highlight. Course almost deserted when I played. Practice facilities superb but bring your own practice balls. Clubhouse a little old fashioned by modern standards but locker room facilities very nicely done. I’ll definitely be back.

Fantastic course - well maintained

Would highly recommend this course to anyone. It is very well maintained and good to play on.

As you'll see from the reviews, I've given everything a 5 except course layout. There are 3 holes half way round, that cross over each other. Can be a bit busy when all holes are in use (only criticism)

Excellent course

First time playing. Quality and speed of greens was very good, the rough wasn't to harsh to deal with and the fairways were very well kept. No par 5s on the course which makes it interesting to play on. Most par 4s are reachable in two. Views are very nice all round the course. The scoops at the side of hazards are very helpful to have at getting the balls out of the water. Clubhouse was very nice inside and the food was at a good price. The driving range is a good size, so is the chipping area and putting green. Overall I would highly recommend playing the course and would definitely play again.

Great day !

Balmore golf course is a fantastic course , me and a friend played it for the first time and would highly recommend a visit to the course .

It’s hidden away and very beautiful , the course was in fantastic condition, the greens did not disappoint .

We did go on Easter weekend and finished our round around 4.30 so we would have liked some food but understand why the kitchen may have been closed .

All in all it was a cracking day out and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Although we teed off at 0950 and there were winter greens on, we had a great round.
This course was in great condition and its only February.
This course will be amazing in summer.

A gem

This is one of the finest courses I have played, £25 on golf now and some of the best greens I have ever putted on, the layout is a amazing, the undulations on the fairways is brilliant, the lies on the fairways were perfect, the greens were so small you have to be so accurate, it is not a long course but you have to be so accurate of the tee, I recommend all levels of golfer must play this course, you will be shocked and stunned how good this is.
