Muckhart Golf Course

Golf is part of Scottish culture. Whatever your standard, there are many superb courses within a short distance of Baldiesburn. Some of the most famous golf courses in the world are but a short drive away, but nobody has ever been disappointed by their visit to our very own Muckhart Golf Club. However well you have played, golfing at Muckhart will make an impression that will draw you back again and again. It’s your day to enjoy, so make sure you do!

The course is beautifully maintained and is set amongst scenery that rivals the most picturesque in all of Scotland. With 3 distinct 9 hole courses, those fortunate enough to play at Muckhart are guaranteed a fantastic and varied golfing experience. Like most courses, the penalty for a poor shot, especially around some of the tighter greens, can seriously damage a score card but there undoubtedly are opportunities for reward as well. Finding good position off the tee can make a big difference to your approach shot, so your course management skills will be well tested, particularly if the wind gets up. The tee for each hole has a map that will help identify hazards to avoid and you are likely to face one or two blind shots, so thinking ahead can help with club selection and direction.

The atmosphere on the Course and in the Clubhouse is relaxed and welcoming. There seems to be more space to enjoy than at other courses, perhaps because of the uninterrupted views of the beautiful Ochil Hills and over the village. Some corners of the courses are silent and peaceful; whereas others are filled with the sound of birdsong. Surrounding farmland can catch your interest, particularly when spring lambs are frolicking or the horses break into a gallop along the boundary fence. Wildlife can often be seen, whether birds of prey circling in the sky or deer ambling across a distant fairway. The colours on the hillside and of the trees and plants both on the course and surrounding it change with the seasons. You just don’t get these experiences on some other courses.

All of this bounty of natural activity goes on around you – please take time to take it all in as the views you will see at any one time are unique to the moment you are there. If you want to slow down and absorb the moment or maybe pick some of the wild raspberries that are dotted around the course, the pace of play is up to you. Stop and rest on one of the many benches and simply wave the next group through.

Having finished your round, the clubhouse lounge is a popular stopover, whether for a thirst quenching drink or to enjoy some tasty home cooking.

Muckhart Golf Club is a pleasure waiting for you to experience it – you would be hard pushed to find a better way to enjoy a fine day! For more information, please chat with Stuart or visit which gives full details of the facilities available and has some stunning photography that should whet the appetite of any potential visitor.
