Ballumbie Castle Golf Club was opened in June 2000. The course has matured well in the years since.
There have been a couple of changes to the original layout, a few of the greens having been moved, new bunkers added and the trees that were planted in the early days have now matured nicely to give a better definition to the course.
Although only a par 69 and 6012 yards long don't be fooled into thinking this course is easy. 12 of the holes have out of bounds, large bunkers can be a problem for wayward shots, and most of the holes on the course are dog legs so position from the tee instead of distance should be a priority.
The greens on the course can be quick and have a lot of subtle breaks.
It's a tough starting 5 holes here. If you get through these 5 then you could be heading for a good round. The next tough stretch is 10-13 (Ballumbie's Amen Corner). Get through this section with a good score then you have every chance of playing to your handicap or better.
