Ballumbie Castle Golf Course (est.2000)
Yards: 6012 Holes: 18 Par: 69
Ballumbie Castle golf course's terrain sweeps and turns with no two holes the same.
The most difficult stretch of the course starts at the 10th, a par four with a burn running next to the fairway and a sloping bank to the right, as well as a pond to the left of the green. It is followed by a 210-yard par three, then another par three at only 143 yards over a pond. This section of the course, though short, catches out many unsuspecting golfers. The 13th is a testing 535-yard, par five uphill and usually into the wind.
With its excellent practice facilities and comfortable clubhouse, Ballumbie Castle golf course is a good example of Scottish golfing at its best.
Most clubs in the bag will be used but not necessarily a driver off every tee, especially for the first six holes of the course where position is more important than distance.
Don't let the wide fairways of Ballumbie Castle golf course fool you. Every hole is different, requiring good skills and club selection, but the real test comes with the approach shots to the greens.
Ballumbie's greens are small with each approach shot requiring careful consideration. Once on the putting surface you will find the pace quick so again good touch is required. Ballumbie rewards the careful golfer, making it a great course for those who want to improve their golfing skills.
