The Allander Course at Hilton Park Golf Club offers 18 holes over 5,487 yards with a 69 par, and shows off its signature hole early: The par-4 fifth hole plays to 372 yards and goes by "Burncrooks." It features a slight dog leg right toward a sunken two-tiered green protected by the Allander burn on three sides, all of which lie out of bounds, making it a tough hole.

James Braid designed the Allander Course at Hilton Park Golf Club way back in 1927 for a 1928 opening. The golf course remains mostly faithful to his vision. The only is that exception of a bit more parkland than moorland because of a recent tree-planting campaign, both to augment the golf course's character and protect the golf course from increased rainfall due to climate change.

The Allander Course at Hilton Park Golf Club is the shorter of the golf club's two golf courses, but management says that just makes it all the more attractive to low-handicap golfers and women.

First time playing here, saw a great price on teeofftimes.co.uk that suited me and my mate.

Arrived to find the place heaving, it was the Senior open, but not to worry as it has two courses.

The Allender course is great, lovely parkland course, that has open fairways, but hazards for you to take notice off. Bunkers had a healthy depth of sand so played true.

Bar staff friendly at the end of the round.

Wish the course was nearer to home and not 45 minutes away. Will most assuredly be back in the future.

Only 4 stars for the course as it was a tad soggy at some points, but didn't overly detract from play.

Don't pass up playing here!
