Course Review and Comments
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 many poor golfers playing from the wrong fairway holding up tee shots and vice versa.
Walking down the 13th a ball came across the back of where i was walking, Plenty of trees to cover me from view and i now have added a nice callaway to my collection!
Greens are not the biggest and not in great shape at the moment but it is early season.
No water in ball washes, i used a towel to clean my but having shaved them just before i left the house they were in not to bad nick. A wee bit of sweat but not too bad!
Clubhouse i need not expand upon just very disappointing given this is a new build.
Read previous reviews and yes many positives for this wee course but cannot disagree with many of the previous comments especially around facilities and price. I was on free but my friend also believes his membership is inflated for the facilities and if it was not for it being on his doorstep would not join.
Too many woman and kids on the course and a great big tree in the middle of the 4th fairway which is mental, tiger woods would not get round this!
A few blow hards on the committee asking me to join and saying its the greatest wee club in the area, they really need to get out much more and visit.

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.

The reviews have been pointed out to me and thanks to my daughter i am writting my own.

Ignore some other reviews from some Interesting characters Fill Ma Glass-up, Fill ma-Crack In, Will I be Long....Indeed !
The visitor fee is very reasonable, you will be made very welcome by all at

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.
Clubhouse bought and paid for, no

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 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 id

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
