About our courses
Set in a rural location in beautiful scenery overlooking the Campsies, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, 10 miles north of Glasgow are two of the finest moorland golf courses in Scotland. Designed by James Braid, the Hilton and Allander courses offer a mixture of holes, designed to deliver very different and memorable golfing experiences.
The Hilton Course
The Hilton is a 18-hole course of 6233 yards and has a Par of 70. The signature hole on the Hilton is the 17th, Par 3, 184 yards, and aptly named “Muckle Drap”. Played from an elevated tee to a well bunkered green, with a burn around the front edge of the green some 200 feet below, this is a daunting shot even for an experienced golfer. The tee shot can vary from a 9 iron to a driver depending on the wind.
The Allander Course
The Allander is a 18-hole course of 5552 yards and has a Par of 69. The signature hole on the Allander is the 5th, Par 4, 372 yards, named “Burncrooks”. The hole is a slight dog leg right played to a sunken two tiered green, with the Allander burn on three sides, all out of bounds, formidable to say the least.
Over the winter season the greenkeeping staff are busy with a full program of improvements and maintenance. These include trees coming down, stump munching and root excavation. Drainage work is also undertaken, plus routine maintenance of the winter courses. We have put together a short video which will give members an insight into the work which is carried out.
