Rowallan Castle Golf Club

Location and Route Planning

In their Words…….

Designed by Eight times European No 1 golfer and 2010 winning Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie, the course is now fast gaining a global reputation as a masterpiece thanks to its fast undulating greens, cavernous bunkers and mature setting.

Visitors will enjoy an unrivalled welcome in the relaxed country club atmosphere of the state-of-the-art clubhouse.

After a round you can enjoy a well-earned refreshment or meal in the clubhouse that is a unique blend of ancient and modern. The splendid Glasshouse Restaurant and Bar has fine views of the testing 8th green and the challenging par 5, 9th hole.

Great course lovely layout tough track for high handicaps but for more experienced club players a challenge we'll... thought out course and would be even tougher with a wind / Breeze coming in from the sea but worth a try coming down in July to play match play the layout and hotel first class needs more advertising as its a hidden jewell for Golfers 🏌️‍♀️ xxread more

Course layout is very nice, but the course condition is a mess. Very swampy with balls constantly plugged or bouncing... backward. I’ve played it a few times over the years, mostly in the summer and it’s always been the same. Wouldn’t ever play it again even if they paid meread more

Played in December and the course was in excellent condition. The pro shop was well stocked with friendly staff. There... are nets to practice in before along with a small, "pick up your own balls" range. If you play during the winter you'll need a matt as per most courses.read more

Where do I start! Tees: in a poor, bare condition. Bunkers: the six I went in had hardly any sand in them, I actually... lifted the ball out of two completely and repositioned my ball to another bit of the bunker that had sand so I could play a shot! The course was in generally good condition. Tgotherwise.read more

Good value. Well designed with lots of good holes, mixture of short and very long. Proper, challenging golf course.... Greens were in good condition. Fairways okay. Bunkers firm but fine. Definitely recommend a visit, but I’d make sure it was dry.read more

Tee boxes had no grass on them holes all over them. Greens had weeds and overgrown patches all over them very poor.... Fairways patches off long grass all over the fairways and weeds in places all over the fairways. For 35 pound a round on a championship standard course I expected better. Do your self a favour and go elsewhere.read more

Poorly designed course. At the last 9 holes you constantly have to walk 200-300 yards from a green to the tee of the... next hole. Often you have to hit over a hill somewhere where you cannot see. Many holes are very narrow and slanting to the bushes or thick rough. 2nd hole is a long and narrow par 4 with a tall tree in the middle, so that even a perfect drive can be ruined by bad luck.read more

I played Rowallan at the beginning of November 2020. The drive in was magnificent and the layout is excellent and some... really nice par 3s. However I have never played a course so wet and boggy. The course in my opinion was unplayable. I lost 4 balls of the tee which were in the middle of the fairway, plugged i guess. Anyway I wouldnt recommend this course in the winter months, perhaps it may get better but not for me.read more

Played Easter Monday 2022. - a cracking looking course with lots off water, trees and elevation. Many holes have a fair... walk between green to tee.The courses is tight so if you struggle to hit a straight ball take lots of balls.It would have been 4 stars but the conditions were lacking. The greens were extremely hairy, you could see they had been cored a few weeks ago but now overdue there first cut. The fairways badly needed cut also.All in all a very enjoyable round though.read more
