Was a very nice course , good greens only thing was needed fairway matts which we didn’t know about before arriving so had to move balls from fairways to the light rough . Would play again this course
Not a bad course
Booked through the app but qhen i arriced rge pro shop was inside the clubhouse which needed a code to be accessed and the pro shop was closed. As such i missed my scheduled tee time as i qas umable to find anyone. Eventually asked a member who let me into clubhouse and spoke to the chef who said all tee times were booked and i would have to go out between groups. I therefore had no scorecard and had to ask a group of members if i could go out in front of them, thankfully they agreed. Course itself was fine, some rather small greens so there accuracy is essential. Would play again in the summer, only hole i wasnt keen on was a blind teeshot over a hill onto a shared fairway running horizontal to the hole you are playing which seems a little dangerous.
Great layout with some real good holes. Course was in good condition for the tome of the year. Would play again for sure.
Good course in great condition considering the recent rain. Not the longest but some challenging and interesting Par 3s and 4s. We’ll be making a return visit soon.
Amazing hidden gem
It had rained solid for two days prior to playing the course ,I phoned the pro shop and asked if the course was open to play with out a canoe lol, I was assured it was good to play and boy it was ,the drainage on the course as amazing hardly a puddle to be seen,would defo recommend Balmore Golf Course for any golfer to play
Certainly a course for anyone needing to gain confidence around the course. The fairways and rough are forgiving but there is a lot of leaves on the course to hide your ball if it goes astray.(this genuinely happened my friend)
The shared green between 8/12 and fairways of 10/12 are a little peculiar but are only an issue for a long hitter.
Mr graeme esdale
The club had there annual pros day on which meant we were 20 min late to tee off, had to wait every single hole sometimes with 8 people on tee so never got to finish round due to lack of light ,would love to play again though obviously in normal pace of play conditions.
First time playing Balmore, really enjoyed it. Would defo book again. Shame it started raining half way round. But its Scotland what do you expect. Didn't spoil the round though.
This is a great course very near Glasgow well worth a visit.
Only down side ,temporary greens on several holes. No problem if only we had been told about them when we booked in and some refund on the green fee would have been nice..
Guy in the shop was fine but never told us 4 out of the first 5 holes were winter greens only found out when we played up to the 1st.
Layout was better the back 9 but all I all it was untidy and the greens were very poor the worst we had played on so will never be back as there are better courses in the area for the money.
And for us not getting to.about the winter greens we would have cancelled and went elsewhere if we had the information but as no one even told us when we arrived I think this is poor
Winter Greens in September!!!
I was never advised on booking or the starters office that some winter greens were in play. There was no consistency, some were and some weren't. On arriving on the tee, we were approached my a member to advise to not take trolleys in certain areas. That was fine and we followed this, then we were chastised for not being away at 1 min past our tee time, later the same member approached our group to complain to the people we had been paired with to make a 4 ball that they weren't following another club rule. Another few holes later we could here him loudly complaining about out our group and that he hadn't seen us here before. Never had anywhere near this hassle playing at numerous other courses. Also buggy hire was off apparently because the course was too wet, the course was dry as a bone on the faraway. At least that's something good to say!
