  • AddressShawpark Golf Course, Alloa, Sauchie, Clackmannanshire FK10 3AX, UK

Present day Sauchie grew from Holton Village and Newtonshaw, which was built to house servants of the Schaw family. The Schaw's moved out of Sauchie Tower to a new house at Schawpark in the 1700s but there is nothing now left of that grand design. At least the spacious grounds remain and it was here that James Braid routed 18 holes for Alloa Golf Club in 1935.

Situated in one hundred and fifty acres of beautiful parkland estate in the shadow of the Ochil Hills, the 6,200 yard, par 70 layout at Alloa Golf Club is a fine test of golf that offers a strong challenge to even the most accomplished golfer. With fairways laid out on rolling terrain, the course has more than enough visual appeal and strategic interest to keep golfers thoroughly engaged from start to finish.

There are no fewer than five short par fours on the card – measuring from 313 to 333 yards – between the 1st and 13th holes and they each offer birdie opportunities. There are few chances to pick up shots against par on the final three holes though, as the round ends with two long, demanding par fours and a tough par three closing hole; the 221-yard, slightly uphill “Beechwood” which is played to a plateau green with rough, bushes, sand and trees all around to pressurise the final tee shot of the day.
