“Lovely short course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We played this course twice while staying in the area. I can understand its very mixed reviews. We played on 2 lovely days (each time after a rainy day). We were lucky enough to have had days when the ball hit the fairways more often than not and found them in great shape. The greens were slow but were true. I can quite see if you had one of those days when the weather is not so good combined with tangling with the horrendous rough and occasional poorly drained sections you might not be a happy bunny. The staff and members were very welcoming.

“Varied and enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I played this course for the first time recently and found it very enjoyable.Some of the greens were soft but this could be down to the amount of rainfall over the last few months. Although the course is reasonably short it is a varied layout with many picturesque holes that you will want to play again. The staff were very friendly and respectful and offered advice on the course unfortunately for us this was after our round was finished. If you are in the area and have time to spare give it a go I,m looking forward to my next visit

“Callander Golf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Played this course after much rain and had a great time. 14th hole was in a low spot, so it was pretty wet around the green. But hey, it's an old course and it is beautiful. Paid 20 pounds. And Callander is a perfectly lovely town.

Sorry to read that you did not enjoy your day at our course.
This very wet winter has made things difficult for our greens staff but we are pleased to report that the course is in now very much improved.
I do need to correct your assumption that our greens staff are part time, they are all full time employees and have the appropriate qualifications.
This is the first time I have ever had a complaint about the attitude of the club house staff, your comments are noted but are not at all typical.
We hope you reconsider your decision about playing here in the future and extend you a warm welcome.

“Great welcome at Callander GC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

We had a superb day at Callander today.
Despite the heavy rain over the last few days the course was very playable.
I saw a previous TA review that complained about puddles, mud and divots. I'm sorry, but you must play all your golf in Dubai. This is golf course in the Scottish Highlands in spring. SUCK IT UP!!!

We had a great welcome by all the staff in the club and they all took time to chat with us.
We will be back in the summer for some of the open events and to enjoy it the warm and in full bloom. Great day out!
