Well after playing this course as a kid growing up. I remember how it used to be. And last year was the first time I'd played golf in 18 years. And the course was in a shocking state. But decided to play it last week, and the difference was fantastic. Still nowhere near as good as years back but is getting there. The 12th dog leg hole was still in poor shape but once you get around the bend the fairway looks much better and the green is a huge one but was in amazing condition after the weeks of rain.

Overall I seen much improvements to the course since last playing it.

Value for money?? I'd say no as you can play better courses for less. Unless you get a deal. But for a council course. You WILL NOT FIND A BETTER COURSE.

Played this after some serious rainfall the day before. Despite this, the course wasn't too bad, zero run on the fairways which made some holes on the front 9 quite long. Back 9 full of short par 4's which, on a dry day would be easy to play. Great value for money for 18 holes and I would play again.

Got a group on deal for this course - what a bargain. I can't believe this is a municipal course.

We played the day after torrential rain and yet the course was in lovely condition and the greens were properly good. It didn't seem especially busy although there were players around the course so pace of play wasn't an issue.

The only disappointment was the clubhouse which didn't seem to be opened but that didn't spoil our golf.

I didn't have high expectations being told this was a municipal course but was more than pleasantly surprised to find a a lovely layout and the course in very decent condition.

It was a belter of a Sunday , sun was splitting the Cumbernauld sky when my pal Arron decided to whip out the metal wan and chip this beauty in fae aboot 190 yards .... Tae ma Shock it went straight in the hole , we heard a shout from the few in attendance of 'it's in the hole'

Some banter but he straddled the pitching wedge like a horse and started galloping up the 9th fairway to get his Dunlop baw,

Cheers pally rigg see ye next year for ma green jacket

My home course that has been left to ruin because it is under the control of north Lanarkshire council, in my opinion it could be 'the' best course in the central belt but lack of upkeep really let's it down, fairways that feel like rough and greens that are unplayable that it is pointless to even attempt a putt,

The course needs serious investment and I can only see it getting worse

A real shame
