The golf course - a parkland layout offers a very attractive variety of challenging holes for both the low and high handicapper. Several of the par fours might appear on the card to be very straightforward; however even the shortest of these can easily extract revenge on the over-confident golfer!

Spectacular views can be enjoyed from most parts of the course. The Ochil Hills form a splendid backdrop to the north while the River Forth can be seen meandering in the valley to the south. Nearby to the west is the Abbey Craig and the famous Wallace Monument, with historic Stirling Castle only a mile or two further away. The magnificent panorama is completed by the more distant mountains: Ben Lomond and Ben Arthur being the most distinctive.

Meanwhile back on the golf course, although the holes undulate sufficiently to maintain constant interest and variety, the only steepish slope is at the far end where the downhill par 3 8th is followed by the short, but uphill par 4 that is the 9th hole.

Most members try to make their score on the front nine since the back nine represents a stiff test of golf, particularly the 'Bermuda Triangle' around 13, 14 and 15 and the taxing final two holes - bogey finish is a score that many are happy to settle for!

A special feature of the course - apart from its consistently good condition and presentation - is the collection of par 3's. The 6th is played from an elevated tee to a receptive green, but beware the pot bunker lurking to the short left hand side! The 8th is a similar length, but is often played into the prevailing wind, thus requiring an extra club or two. Enjoy the wonderful backdrop to this hole. The 11th has recently been re-modelled and accuracy is at a premium here. The pick of four very fine par 3's is the 14th. Measuring 210 yards from the white markers this is one of the most picturesque golf holes in the whole of Central Scotland - but make sure you hit the green with your tee shot, otherwise the scenery is likely to be your only happy memory of the hole!
