A Surprisingly Good Course With Shot Variety

Everyone aspires to reach the pinnacle of their amateur or professional career by being privileged enough to play a round of golf at St Andrews, the Old Course of course, but for many itís a long road with many hours, days and years practicing.

So until then itís a good idea to play on as many different courses as possible and find the ones you enjoy playing, suit your game and help your confidence by achieving good scores.

Earlier this year I had the privilege of an interview with the R&A for their social media post, so the night before I stayed at Drumoig Golf Hotel and decided in the morning before the interview to play the Drumoig Golf Course, it was a spontaneous choice achieved through a very quick Google search.

The arrival to the hotel was nice with a large gravel car park, the golf course is just fifty yards or so across the car park, and from the hotel you can look out across the course and lakes which is a nice touch.

Managing to scrape an early morning round the first thing I noticed is the arrival of many migrant workers and business people, mainly or oriental, eastern origin, all I have to say were very pleasant as was the hut attendant in letting me tee off as a one ball before the groups of four.

To be honest I wasnít expecting a very good course, the golf was cheap because I stayed in the hotel, I think it was about £12 for 18 holes, but actually as youíll read on the course was better than expecting.

Teeing off at the first is a dog leg right to an elevated green from the fairway, the second an uphill par 3 followed by several par 4s that believe it or not are adjacent to a pig farm Ė they all had lots of cut piglets which were brilliant Ė but not so noisy as to put anyone off their game it has to be said. The next hole was a dog leg right par 4 blind to the green if you didnít make a good tee shot.

The course followed contours of the landscape, with my favourite holes being a later par 5 almost straight hitting a short third into a quarry like green with a natural rock wall behind, the next par 4 was straight followed by a nice slightly left curved par 4 hitting into a green Ė of all the holes this one had an air of championship about it, a little bit of Augusta only closer to Dundee!

Later on the course peaks in height looking towards the Drumoig Hotel with a tee shot downhill with lake hazard to the left, hitting over water to the green, the next hole again is designed around the lake hazard and requires a good and accurate tee shot.

Drumoig again follows the contours of the land with an uphill par 4 and following to the eighteenth hole which from the tee you hit into a steep left bank and the ball happily rolls round to give you a great chance of a short pitch to the final green by the hotel and clubhouse. Itís a novelty of a hole and a fun finish to the course.

Drumoig is not a golf course for golfers who donít enjoy a long walk, because the course felt long with several hills to navigate, buggies would be recommended for this course which will also cut your time down dramatically. I was surprised at the overall length of the course although sometimes a course seems longer when youíve never played it before.

All in all the course condition was good, not outstanding, but good, some of the greens were good and true for consistent putting and whilst a lot of the course is not awe inspiringly beautiful its great aesthetic features include two large lakes, and the unusual green with the quarried rock face behind. I found some holes really enjoyable and the course varies with accuracy needed although much of it is open which is good for golfers of all handicaps.

Perhaps my judgement of the course on this occasion was maybe better as a result of the impending interview at R&A, St Andrews later that day, but I would certainly not begrudge playing £12 for a round of golf at Drumoig, play it once and see what you think yourself.

Overall Score: 7.2 / 10
