Helensburgh Golf Club was founded in August 1893 as a nine-hole layout. By 1905, the golf course had been extended to 18 holes. In the 1920s, James Braid devised many changes, some of which are still in place today. Nestled on the shore of the Clyde River, Helensburgh is easily accessible, only 23 miles north west of Glasgow. The golf course is situated above the town, with fine views over the Clyde estuary to the west and Loch Lomond to the east. The par-69 golf course is 6,104 yards long. Helensburgh Golf Club's 175-yard third hole is considered the signature hole, with out-of-bounds on the left, woods beyond and a pond in the front of the green, which slopes from back to front and helps stop the ball.

Played the course the day after a big storm. Course has stood up well to all the rain but 19 trees had been brought down by the wind, however the green keepers had cleared the debris from the course. A very nice layout with good greens made for an enjoyable game and we look forward to coming back again in the future.

Course is OK

Relatively short course. In reasonable condition. Some tricky greens. Good value for money at £10 each, but probably not great value at the rack rate.

Great Find

This is a top notch course for a a great price with an interesting variety of holes - a real bargain that's easy to recommend. What stands out is the speed and quality of the greens.

We played in heavy rain for a good part of the round and the greens were still slick and true, there's some good greenkeeping happening around here..it's extremely well kept.

Off course the staff are very friendly and welcolming and some great scenery to boot..

It's a winner - give it a bash and enjoy !

Very friendly members and pro.

Paid a very reasonable £18 for a round, arrived an hour before my pre-booked tee time but was given an earlier time by the pro. As I am novice golfer the advice on the course was greatly appreciated. Thankfully I had picked a beautiful crisp October morning to play Helensburgh and the views over The Clyde made a stunning backdrop to a wonderful day.
