It gives me no joy as a previous member saying this, but the course needs to be shut down or vast sums of money invested.

Course condition at present is disgusting. Essentially 18 flags put in areas of grass that are ever so slightly more trimmed and ever so slightly less waterlogged than the rest of the land. It looks like this course has been left to rot over winter. Greens pathetic. The first green is still a patchwork quilt of a green, the same it was six years ago. Other greens in similar condition. Fairways absolutely saturated with water., literally no spot to pick and place. Really is sad to see. The drainage was the reason I left the course, however despite the challenges it always was well looked after. Doesn't seem to be the case anymore

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback. I'm astonished frankly with your comments however. The course is in the best condition it has been in for a long, long time - so much so that some of our members who have been here from when it opened have commented that the greens are the best they've seen them........ever!

If you'd like to send me an email to golf@dbhglasgowwesterwood.com, I will try and give you some relevant feedback on what we've been doing and our plans moving forward. I can also get you up for a game to see if it was just a bad day?

Best,

Daryn

I do like the course and the overall condition was ok. But I had a few major issues with it.

The tee off boxes are shocking the rough is an absolute joke and needs cut back as the minute you're ball goes in you can almost guarantee its a dropped shot.

Unfortunately for this I won't be back this year. But the biggest concern was how the greens play. I've never seen a green spiked as much. So much so the ball bounces so bad that unless you're a few feet from the hole you won't be one putting

Hi there,

Thanks for your comment. The course has been much drier this year and is starting to turn the corner with regards our drainage work. I'm sorry that you felt the greens were too soft - they have been in great condition all year is the general feedback we have had. We will hopefully see you back up again soon and hopefully you get the same experience as everyone else.

Played this course a few years ago and was essentially a marsh. Appears much improved. The dry summer certainly seems to have helped. Greens are true and generally the course seems in much better condition. The rough is brutal however, personally I think too severe. Ultimately the course rewards good shots but anything wayward is lost/in bunker. A good test, but bring plenty of balls!

Hi there,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback and I'm delighted you got to witness first-hand the development and improvement of the course over the last few years.

Lots of hard work has gone in to this from the team as a whole. There's plenty more to do to bring us to the standard that we have set for ourselves (rough thinning one of those measures), but it's an on-going process and one in which I hope you can continue to share with us along the way.

Hopefully we can welcome you back again soon.

The last few weeks we have had great weather which has changed the course to a very very good course. Some beautiful holes. Ok a little dry bit better that than wet. 14th hit a drive down the hill and 9 iron to the back of green to watch the ball roll to 5 feet of the hole for my 1st EVER eagle. Then to follow up with a birdie. Right now this course is so much better than it's been in many many years. Play it while the sun is here. You won't regret it.

Used to be a member here and the drainage was awful......

This time up, course looked miles better, greens were well kept and good speed. Always a challenging course.

Staff are excellent.

No hold ups, easy to play at own pace.

Major bug bear though is that the deep rough needs a proper cut though. If your ball ends up in it just now, you're as well teeing up again.

Recommend the course though, good fun!

Just starting to learn Golf and this is not a very forgiving course, if you go off the fairways at all you never find your ball as the rough is so high. There was a lot of heavy rain lying from the day before which effected fairways and again the ball did not run very far.
