Type Resort
Located west of Glasgow, Earl of Mar Golf Club overlooks the River Clyde with views that stretch beyond the Kilpatrick Hills. A scenic forest filled with more than 250 chestnut and beech trees shaped the design of the course, carving the doglegs and framing the greens. It has a traditional parkland layout that offers a fair amount of challenges balanced by generous fairways that are beginner-friendly. Many holes present interesting risk-reward opportunities where good strategy and some skill will get you far, but they are not too punishing if you are slightly errant. Weaving through the trees requires accuracy and numerous strategically placed bunkers emphasize its importance even further. There are only a few holes that play right alongside the river though golfers will enjoy scenic views on almost every hole.

Mar Hall Golf Course

A challenging course which suits long hitters but perfectly playable for the average golfers. Holes are varied making for an interesting round of golf. Very attractive course to play with interesting views of the River Clyde. Greens true but a bit patchy in places probably due to the long dry period we have just had. Off course facilities excellent. Will return to play again.

Skowest round u've ever played

Played saturday past and the pace of play was terrible. At each tee you were waiting around 15 minutes before you could then enter onto the play due to the que in front.

Front nine was decent. Can see the greens are still to grt to there true way. Back nine looked great but ended up coming off at the 10th as it 3 hours 30 mins to ger to that point.

Was looking forward to playing as the resort itself is fantastic. Wouldn't pay the money for the golf again unfortunatly.

Dangerous and unplayable

I have played the course several times and love it. However I played on Sunday 5th of February and the course was unplayable. The tee's we're poor quality mats. If it was a grass tee you struggled to stay on your feet as it was a bog. Very disappointed as I took 3 others that have never played the course. At £104 for a 4 ball you think your getting a bargain. Unfortunately this is not the case. I play at paisley golf club. My own course blows this out the water condition wise.
