Course Review and Comments
I would play this course again as a visitor as I enjoy playing different course. I have 3 memberships for courses which I use for business and was considering Mount Ellen as the course is short and ideal for business client’s not regular golfers but lack of facilities and lack of quality such as towels and soap for the price put me off.
That said the course was nice and in good condition and we did get some enjoyable golf. Greens were in good condition although as stated two holes 11th and 14th need to have work done on them.
Tree at the fourth is also more of an eyesore than a challenge to the hole and would look at cutting that tree well back.
Good greens are needed on this course as your first shot is usually on the green and good stopping essential. As I do not like pitch and runs I like to lob the ball pitch it so yes greens suited me greatly.
Not sure about review below with water feature I can't say I noticed a water feature at all on the course and could be the reviewer is being sarcastic maybe a puddle on a fairway etc but nice dry day when I was there no puddles and fairways running well.
There is now an air hose for blowing off dirt so a good addition to the club.
Water in the ball washers would be helpful especially when it is so warm.
Good mid range course but strongly agree with other reviewers this is way over priced for members and juniors and I would not consider joining even as a business right off I demand value for money and at £630 and £150 for juniors with no lockers available and when they are priced as an additional I suggest a closer look at the pricing structure.

Very Racist golf course the men in the clubhouse were racist, there were a couple of golfers talking to the chef and i could just tell they were racist.

I felt the course was tightly packed especially around the 14th green or 12th tee or 15th tee. Trying to take a piss there was almost impossible!
The 1st, 13th and 18th hole are also a nusience as

I think all the reviews thus far have been far too polite. This is a short course and not challenging. It is looking well and so it should for the inflated price.

Im a vet so yes will play it all the time. A toilet around the 14th would be great and some more buggies to allow us older guys get up the 16th and 17th. We miss them out and cause issues if people wa

I was directed to the course reviews as they are the talk of the place just now. Agree in some way with every comment posted and interesting to see how visitors view the club.

I would question anyone who is critical of this good test of golf. No par 5's? - Big deal, there are plenty of challenging holes and all greens are well protected by bunkers. A good water hazard fea

The individuals who have previously rated the course are way of the mark. Although the course is short it has small tight well manicured greens and fairways. The clubhouse is ideal for the majority of

I am a member who pays £630 a year for as the previous reviewers rightly point out poor facilities that are priced at the high end of the market.
For this price i don't even get a locker.

Can see what the previous two reviews mean. I stumbled across this review and although it was back in August I thought having seen the reviews I should add my points.
I do presume the previous guy

No Practice facilities and very over priced for the facilities. One guy did not wait on urinal and urinated in the shower due to size of facilites.
Decorum and hospitality for a golf club very poor

The clubhouse was new and as I was considering joining also judged the course on the inflated membership fee. At £630 only Drumpellier is more expensive in the region. I expected great things with th
