5 reviews of Brunston Castle Golf Course
I played this course as part of a day out, and what a course. Lovely greens, lovely fairway, and lovely staff. I found the fairways to be a bit longer than perhaps I would like, and the semi rough was like soup, but I would imagine that a more experienced golfer would not feel the same. The setting for this course are stunning, and it is a course I will be playing again and again.
This is a lovely course and is lots of fun to play. I agree with the comment about the graded rough...you only get punished for hitting poor shots. The layout is really good and there is a good variety of holes. The views from the course are spectacular and the clubhouse is a relaxed place. I would definitely recommend this course if anyone os on a golf break in Scotland.
We found the course very enjoyable. It was in good condition, with the greens/ fairways in good nick, grading of rough fair, meaning you should generally only hit heavy rough or water with genuinely bad shots. Some great views from tees looking down the holes, and the surrounding countryside provides a nice backdrop. Would play it again.
I love this course and have played it several times now after playing in a pro-am a few years ago. Plenty of water which only really catches very poor shots and some horrific rough. Its quite a log as most of the course seems to be uphill (unlikely I know) and many of the tees are raised. Some cracking long par 3s and plenty of par 5s. I know its not really that difficult as the pros murdered it at the pro-am with most of them being well under par - our guy hit a -5 67 - but it was tough enough for me.
Played this course twice in one day, as part of a society tour, and enjoyed both rounds. The course is well maintained, although recent heavy rain had made a few of the lower fairways quite heavy. The undulating green on the 11th also had a fair bit of surface water on it. The course is quite hilly, with at least 5-6 greens significantly higher than the fairway, adding some challenge to club selection. There is a fair bit of permanent water within the course design, (a large lake at the 1st and 2nd, a river running through, and a water protected par 3 at the 16th). However, based on the number of balls that our party of 8 lost in the two rounds, it is fair to say the water hazards are fairly easy to avoid through some conservative course management. A solid course, particulalry suitable for society/visitors who want a high scoring stableford game.
