In Their Words ...........

Buchanan Castle lies in a forested residential estate with every tree native to Western Europe – five different types of Oak and several soaring Pacific Coast Redwoods. Within this wonderful landscape you will find the hidden gem of Scottish golf, Buchanan Castle Golf Club.The ground on which the golf course is laid out was used as a race track, and for training gallops. Their greatest success was the 1878 Derby winner, Sefton, ridden by Harry Constable. It is commemorated in the name of the 18th hole of the course, and in a large oil painting of the horse, jockey and attendants which graces the clubhouse.
John McDonald Bannerman, one of the most famous of all Scottish Rugby Internationals, was a factor to the Duke of Montrose in 1935 when golf at Buchanan Castle was first conceived. He requested the expertise of James Braid, five times Open Champion. Then in his 60’s and a man who had designed courses the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland and had a hand in the King’s at Gleneagles, Rosemount, Carnoustie and Dalmahoy. Buchanan Castle Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole parkland course lying on the plain of the River Endrick less than one mile from Loch Lomond and it is a delight, in spite of the fact that in Scottish golfing terms it is almost a new-comer, dating from 1936. One intriguing aspect of play over the course is that many fairways have been framed by two tall trees, one either side, at around 200 yards, or where the Braid Dog-legs start to turn. These are simple but insidious. For example, the very first hole has these framing trees just where the fairway turns to the right.
Buchanan Castle offers golfers a fair but challenging round of golf in a unique setting, with mountains, river and forest scenery near the shores of Loch Lomond. It is a stunningly beautiful parkland course. Wine and dine in the relaxing atmosphere of the newly refurbished clubhouse which houses historical paintings of the Dukes of Montrose and also racehorses from a time when the Montrose family had links to horseracing.
