Golf course architect James Braid designed a 6,266-yard par 71 course on the 150 acres of rolling parkland beneath the Ochil Hills that are Alloa Golf Club's home. A test for even the most seasoned golfer, Alloa also accommodates high handicappers.

All golfers will enjoy the final four holes: two long par 3s split by two long and extremely challenging par 4s. Make sure to keep an eye out for the ditch in front of the 17^th green.

Alloa Golf Club dates back to 1935. It was built on the estate of Schawpark House. One of the most influential families in medieval Scotland, the Schaws were governors of Stirling Castle until the reign of James IV.

Facilities at the club include a locker room, snooker and a dining room with a lounge bar and large flat screen television. There are also several practice areas.

Small hills, fantastic layout and the greens were in perfect condition. Second time I’ve played this course in the last 2 weeks and I can’t say anything bad about it. I will definitely be back.

To find an excellent course on full greens ( except one ) and in such good condition at the end of December is a rarity. Some great holes , fantastic views of the Ochils . What’s not to like ?

Heavy fog and winter greens reduced the playability of the course. Course very quiet but held up behind a slow threeball who refused to let single through. Added 40 mins to the round. Poor etiquette. Overall not the best experience but could be a one off. Generally a good course.

Good points

Played this course yesterday,the course layout is good with some cracking holes,pace of play was good,never used the club house so can’t comment on that

Bad points

The greens are horrendous hardly any grass on them,all bumpy and your ball was just plugging on them if you came down with any hight in your shot,the fairway grass was as long as the first cut should be,so all in all won’t be back here unless drastic changes are made!!!

The course was beautifully greened up after the long brown spell, with smooth greens and grassy fairways. Some bunkers and some tees are under the weather, but this is a scenic, rolling, beautiful parkland (Scottish) course.

Played here today, course was in mostly good condition, some bare patches, but understandable after the recent weather.

Layout is very good, tricky but fair course.

Don't agree with stroke index, but this is probably set for white tees,

Greens and bunkers good.

Nice clubhouse, but you need to be let in by staff.

Catering and staff very good.

I would recommend this course. We plan to be back next month.

Played yesterday with my son and found it very difficult at some holes due to non receptive greens as course very dry. Enjoyed our day but very tiring with hot weather and course a bit hilly.

First time playing Alloa. Nicely laid out course with quite a number of blind greens. Greens not in that great shape but to be fair it is early November. What spoilt the day was pace of play. I was a singleton so accept I had minimal standing but a very slow playing four ball in front of me (with no one in front of them) refused to let me through. When they lost a ball and had perfect opportunity while they looked for it they simply dropped another ball (so not playing an official competition either)

First time playing this course. Started off with a really nice looking hole which set up the day. First green was really soggy but that was the only one. The rest of the greens were in great condition for the time of year as was the whole course. Didn't use the facilities so can't comment on them. Views around the course were beautiful. Will definitely be back but probably try to do so in the height of summer months.
