One of the region’s most popular courses, at Drumpellier Golf Club, has 18 holes of undulating fairways and greens. Big hitters can let loose on the long fairways while others can practice their more delicate shots over the course's many obstacles. Other excellent 18-hole courses not to be missed are at Greenock and Gourock, where you can enjoy spectacular views over the Firth of Clyde as you work your way round the course.

For a quicker round, try your hand at one of Greater Glasgow & the Clyde Valley’s many 9-hole courses. The hilly woodland course at Calderbraes includes tight fairways, requiring a deal of skill and planning on approach. The municipal course at Strathclyde Park has some small and tricky greens, while Mearns Castle Golf Club’s 9-hole course allows you to develop your game.

Wherever you choose to play, keep a look out for the Golfers Welcome scheme, which accredits accommodation providers that offer dedicated golf facilities like secure club storage, weather updates and details of local golf suppliers.
