About The Course
The course at Paisley Golf Club presents an enjoyable, interesting and challenging round of golf for players of all standards.
The course itself is moorland in nature but it is not as hilly as may be imagined. The fairways are fairly wide and most are tree-lined. The well-bunkered greens tend to be large and undulating and, as such, test the putting ability of the player.
Among the many features of the course are the 3 testing par-5s and, in particular, the 4 par-3s- none of which can be regarded as "a wee flick". All 4 tee shots require a strong and accurate mid-iron (at least) to find the green.
The "signature" hole on the golf course is the par 3 15th where the tee shot is played from an elevated tee, over a number of trees to a low-lying and well-bunkered green some 200 yards away. A birdie here or even a par has been well-earned.
Apart from an excellent design and lay-out , the condition of the course is also first-class, thanks to a dedicated team of Green-keeping staff and an extensive and successful drainage up-grading and expansion programme which commenced at the end of 1999 and continues today.
Resulting from the location of the course , on top of the Gleniffer Braes and some 800 feet above sea-level, golfers can enjoy a view that few other courses can match. To the west can be seen Goat Fell and the other Arran hills, to the north the surface of Loch Lomond and above the Kilpatricks, the tops of Ben More, Ben Venu, Ben Vane and Ben Ledi. Looking to the east , Kirk O' Shotts can be picked out and further round to the south-east, Tinto Hill around Lanark can be seen.
An excellent golf course in spectacular surroundings !!
