Ardeer Golf Club is an exceptionally pleasant, rolling and well-appointed parkland course with hundreds of small, blossoming trees routed along the fairways and a babbling burn crossing in front of the greens. In playing the course, it is a lot more demanding than it appears. The 9th and 11th greens have recently been improved and are both exceptional holes playing across the "babblin" burn. The 9th is easily reachable from your second shot but the 11th at stroke index 1, is best approached from a lay-up. Our shop supplies a wide range of golfing goods from top manufacturers, while our clubhouse extends a warm welcome to all members and visitors.
