Helensburgh Golf Club
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.

Very scenic course
I enjoyed playing this course which I last played around four years ago. It is a very scenic course with superb views of the Clyde estuary and the surrounding moors. Unfortunately, it had rained heavily the previous day and there were some hefty showers so the course was pretty wet in parts which slowed the greens and made other lies very squelchy.
I received a very warm welcome by the club professional when I reported in for my round and the other people I met at the club were very friendly.
All in all a course and club to be recommended.
First time there
I’m currently a non member golfer so Iv been going round different courses to narrow down my options. Even with winter greens in forced today the course was in good condition with friendly staff in the pro shop and at the bar, members are also happy to say hello and to talk to while having a pint post round. Would definitely recommend for anyone consider playing the course. Great value for money at a fair price. Will definitely be back.
lovely sceinic course
enjoyed round of golf pity it was a bit frosted and winter greens , ground conditions fine ,
Staff were very welcoming, and course was in great condition for mid-November.
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.
Very good in all respects.
Excellent food and coffee, helpful proshop, course in good condition, especially the greens. Full marks.
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 !
Lovely course staff and professional members made you welcome overall enjoyable day
Very pleasant afternoon
Staff helpful, greens in a good state, layout not excellent if you have never visited before, I never used the clubhouse so I cannot comment on the facilitys i will par take in a couple of pints on my next visit. Overall good value for money if you get the hot deal which I always do.
Booked Helensburgh spur of the moment and glad I did. Beautiful course with really well tended greens. Some tricky little holes for a first time visitor. Really friendly staff and members. Incredible views. Overall 4.5.
Lovely course on a beautiful day, amazing views of the Clyde & Loch Lomond. Ground conditions a bit wet in parts. Worth a visit!
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.
