Course Information

Designed and laid out in 1907 by Harry Vardon, the course at Balmore Golf Club has been brought up to modern standards with USGA specification greens. The sculpted fairways and undulating greens are always manicured and beautifully presented. The course has some demanding par 4s with tree-lined sloping fairways. Accuracy and club selection is key to leaving a welcoming clear shot into the green. The short holes are regarded as some of the finest par 3s in the area and can hamper even the best of scorecards if not respected.

    Good drainage and fun to play

    One of the best courses for drainage. Greens and fairways in excellent condition for this time of year. Very very good value for money.

    DO NOT PLAY IF WINTER GREENS

    Had heard some good things about the course from a former member and so headed up on a frosty morning in January. We fully expected to play on winter greens given the forecast. However, what we didn't expect was the layout. We'll overlook the fact that the clubhouse alarm was going off and could easily be heard over the first 6 holes as they had obviously elected to let all the staff have the day off (it is a public holiday in Scotland). We had booked ahead using the internet so tee'd off. It became clear that the temporary greens have been setup to remove the character from the holes. It would appear no attempt has been made to protect the greens. Rather than having the temps on the aprons of the current greens, some are as far away as 150 yards (8th). The setup for the 15th and 16th beggars belief as well as the placement of the green for what should be a great 17th hole. The course does look like a great challenge when playing correctly, but with the number to choose from in the area I'd be more inclined to try them out before returning here.

    A Little Gem

    I first played Balmore just over a year ago, and really enjoyed the experience. A friendly welcome from the helpful staff made the pre-round experience very relaxing. There's a practice area for those, like myself, who like a warm up. The course is very well kept and the USGA greens are excellent. The course offers plenty of challenges and also some great looking holes. Some might not like the fact that the course has no Par 5s but that suits me as I'm no long hitter. My friends all love this course too so it makes for a great social occasion. If the membership was a bit cheaper, I'd have most likely joined by now, as I've played there at least a dozen times over the last year.
