Review for Drumpellier

Reviewer Score:


A visit to Drumpellier was long overdue, a ranking position in the Lanarkshire top ten providing the impetus for a long overdue return, a decade after my only other visit. It was therefore almost like a maiden visit for me, with memories of my last game next to non-existent, although I did recall that it was quite a tough track. That opinion has been reinforced and although the course wasn’t in prime condition due to a lot of standing Drumpellier Golf Course - Photo by reviewerwater, you could quickly tell that this is a quality parkland establishment. Two similar in length holes begin your journey, the first being a stiff par 4 and SI 1 on the card, quite unusual to have the toughest hole first I would suggest? The second being slightly easier as it is a par 5. Two fairly non-descript par 4’s follow before the first par 3 at hole number 5. This set the standard for the par 3’s, all of which were excellent, the 12th being the best of the bunch, other solid hole’s followed with a good par 5 to finish a very decent outward 9. Not a great start to the back 9 however, the holes from the aforementioned 12 to the closing hole, more than make up for it. The star of the show being the 16th, a stout par 5 with a quite superb green complex which will test the best of golfers with two short but tricky par 4’s providing a very satisfactory finish to your round. I trust that it won’t be another 10 years before I return here and as the course is normally on the Tee Off Times discount scheme. So if you are looking for a golf on a quality track that won’t burst the bank then Drumpellier should be near the top of your list. MPPJ
