Designed by renowned architect James Braid, the flat, tree-lined parkland course at Crow Wood was laid out in 1925 on part of the grounds of the Garnkirk Estate
While most of the holes use more or less the original layout, additional ground was acquired in the 1930s, on which the current sixth to ninth holes are built, lengthening the course by some 600 yards to its current length of 6,168 yards.
Most holes are lined with oak, birch and pine trees, waiting to catch a wayward drive, while the Garnkirk Burn winds its way through the middle part of the course, making the sixth and seventh holes particular testing depending on which way the wind is blowing.
On clear days, there are magnificent views of the Campsie Hills, with Ben Lomond in the background. The current course record of 62 was achieved by European Tour winner Dean Robertson.
There are plenty to choose from but the 314-yard, short par-4 16th is a particular highlight. From an elevated tee box, a drive over a rise on the fairway leaves most players with just a wedge to the small green, which is very well protected by bunkers.
