Course Review and Comments

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 means £350 -£400 for full membership if he says associates at £250. I couldn't agree more the price of this course gives off a very different idea to what it really is.

No practice facility says it all very disappointing for any club but a new build???

The toilets I also agree with one urinal and 7 of us wanting it. None of us thought of using the showers but if I ever go back I will seen as members clearly do.

Blue paper rolls to dry your hands and they had finished so had to use toilet paper. No soap which was in a fancy dispenser at £630 you would expect facilities are topped up.

Not sure about comments about pro apart from not very welcoming from anyone in the shop which was disappointing. Perhaps with the club being overpriced it gives everyone is complacent at earning their money at this club.

Did buy a roll and a pint and service was good. Agree a bit loud and there were mobile phones in use but I don't mind that would prefer if the clubhouse and facilities lived up to the price tag we expected and presume this is what the other two reviews mean.

Also no par 5. So also agree with that point!

Many many negatives about this course and would agree the points above alone put this course firmly in a price range of £350 and not the price which is double that.

I would not recommend this course and as the previous review says lack of facilitites there are much better value for money out there and in that area. I live in East Kilbride and Torrance and Langlands, both municipal course have better facilities. I was only visiting but as a businessman like to have memberships for clients i would not use Mount Ellen at this time.
