This beautiful rolling course provides an enjoyable all round test of your game. Opening with a gentle par 4 up the hill and promising views ot the Clyde the course soon reminds you who is boss with an uphill par 5 threading through neatly manicured burns that requires careful negotiation. The course continues to climb through pleasant parkland with neatly mown fairways and true greens adding to the growing vista and providing further scoring opportunities.

You need to hang on when you reach the turn, as the terrain changes and the course adapts seamlessly with it to give a rollercoaster ride home with a links type feel. Aptly named holes like Gorse Hill and the Lang Whang leave you in no doubt as to what you are up against. The course continues to climb providing growing views and final photo opportunites before the spectacular drop hole "Doon and Roon" plummets you back to the large and comfortable Clubhouse and welcome refreshment in the nineteenth hole.

I sat there with a smile on my face and can't wait to return and play it again.

If you like to just grip it and rip it, your day will end in tears but if you enjoy the challenge of course management, you will never tire of playing Gleddoch House.

A unique course that takes you on a most enjoyable journey literally and mentally. Starting gently with a short par 4 and a pretty par 3 offering early birdie chances and promising views of the Clyde, the course quickly lets you know who is boss with an uphill par 5 threading through neatly manicured burns which require careful negotiation. Having survived that, you gain altitude and the views just get better and better as you work through the front nine in parkland surroundings. Every hole is beautifully presented by the green staff; the greens are true and fairways neatly mown.

When you reach the turn, hang on tight as the back nine takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the beautiful and rugged countryside giving an almost links type feel with blind drives, climbing forever higher and views that grow and grow. Holes are aptly named with the likes of Gorse Hill and The Lang Whang leaving you in no doubt of what you are up against.

Then with the Summit reached and the final photo opportunities taken the course plummets you back down to the luxurious Clubhouse with the spectacular drop hole "Doon and Roon". Safely indoors in the Nineteenth Hole, it's impossible not to smile about what went before - all I wanted to do was go straight back out and play it again.

One word of warning, don't just grip it and rip it, it will end in tears. It's a test of your course management, but don't forget your camera.

I have newly moved to the Bishopton area and was looking for a club to join so I had played pretty much them all in this area and for me this is the one I'm joining.

There haven't been many reviews put up since the work has been done on the course and that is a travesty, the effort that has been spent in bringing this course up to scratch is amazing. Yes the 10th and 14th are still alittle patchy but that's to be expected where it's located. I can't rate my experience on this course highly enough and if your in the area I would recommend it.

Played here a few years ago and the ground (even in summer) was bog like and unplayable. Huge investment seems to have been put into the drainage system and the club should be commended for it.

It was a very wet day this time but the course held up well, the greens were fantastic, best I’ve played in a while and when there was a break in the rain we got some fantastic views.

Clubhouse area was quite posh but all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, will definitely be back

To be able to play golf in Scotland was a dream come true. My wife took advantage of the spa and I enjoyed the amazing views Gleddoch has to offer. Course conditions were very wet and some areas do not drain well and there was plenty of standing water on some of the greens. There was a lot of rainfall the previous evening, but barely any during the round. If I were a local or played this course often, I would not have played, but being my 1st trip to Scotland and the chance to play, I took it. They rented me a set of clubs, which came with some balls and tees. As I stated, the views are great - River Clyde and Dumbarton - and the layout is challenging, but fair.

Had an enjoyable round of golf at a sunny Gleddoch golf course on a Thursday afternoon in May, when the course was extremely quiet. This allowed us to get round on foot in approximately 3 hours. Course has some challenging holes and breath taking views over the River Clyde. Contours of course slightly favour those who have a slight fade on the ball.

such a shame. really nice setting great views but course is a mess. greens terrible. most bunkers unable to play out of. you would think with the money spent on the hotel and Spa that they could spare some for the course.
