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.

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.

Balmore GC

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.

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.
