Was expecting a lot more from this course. The course was in poor condition. Tees were awful and greens weren’t much better. This was one of the more expensive in the area on teeofftimes however it’s probably the worst course I’ve played for some time. Definitely won’t be returning.

I was out playing on that day and have to disagree with your comment. In fact the evidence of tee and green condition is there for all to see on their Twitter site. I am not affiliated with this golf course and am not a member of it. You can check my name on the tee time log.

The course was in excellent condition considering the rain from the previous days! The layout is perhaps one of the best I have encountered. The only downside was being held up by a ladies 3 ball with no option to play through.

First time playing this course and it was very good, course playing shorter due to the great weather were having. As it was our first time playing this course we found that you needed a bit of knowledge of the layout as there were a lot of blind shots and holes where you needed to wait for the bell which at times we did not see. Enjoyed our day even with the slow play. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Played as a two ball on a late afternoon in beautiful weather. No golf shop open so had to go into bar to collect cards etc. Staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and let us T off early as course was not busy. One customer offered to show us to the first T even though he was watching the football. Course was in excellent all round condition with many varied and interesting holes suitable for any level of golfer. We will be back.

It was our first time playing the course it was in excellent condition, the weather also helped.

We were a fourball and there was a 2 ball in front of us. They held us up for about 6 holes which was frustrating however that apart it was a good round of golf.

Definitely be back.

We all enjoyed the day however disappointed that no course guide as the steep slope at the dog-leg sixth was impossible to predict. Also the burn at the par 5 15th is unfair as it is impossible to carry 2nd shot on to the small green and you have to lay up - should be culverted below ground.

Good suburban course on the whole and would revisit

Staff where very friendly and welcoming, clubhouse looked really nice. Members on the course where helpful too. They changed the order of the holes to be played, easy to mistake which way to play.

Course was ok

First time playing bishopbriggs, at no time did they mention it was winter greens or i wouldn't have bothered playing.

I'll definitely play again in the future, would love to see this course at its best.

Only 2 miles from the centre of the city, this course starts in the town centre of Bishopbriggs and quickly whisks you away to a parkland delight with fabulous views of the campsie's and surrounding scenery. The course is mostly flat, but deceptively long and will challenge the best. Overall a great experience and a true hidden gem by having a clubhouse in the centre of town and not stuck out in a field somewhere.
