In their Words…….
Balfron Golf Society runs an 18 hole course situated 6 miles from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, in an area of West Stirlingshire in Scotland, 20 miles to the north of Glasgow and 20 miles to the west of Stirling. The 9 hole course opened on Saturday 4th July 1994. Since then there have been continuous improvements in the course.
The greens have improved consistently year on year and between 1994 and 1997, 3 new greens and 6 new tees have been designed and built. In 1997 the Society purchased adjoining land which meant that the course could be extended to 18 holes.
On the 30th of June 2001 the new 18 hole Shian Course of Balfron Golf Society was opened for play. Since then the society has continued to improve the course and extended the 17th hole, building a new medal tee and a challenging new green which has significantly lengthened the holeBalfron Golfing Society
