The Mount Ellen course has been dramatically shaped by the last ice age and is laid out over two drumlins, namely elongated, large 'mounds' of material deposited under the ice sheet, which covered Scotland about 200,000 years ago.
Leadhills takes the honour of being Scotland's highest golf course at 1,500 feet above seas level. Naturally, it is a hilly layout that is subjected to quite high winds, but that's just part of its unique character.
Rouken Glen is a well-maintained parkland course with some fine panoramic views of the local countryside. It is yet another product of the great James Braid and has all the trademarks of a great Braid course.
