The stunning scene that greets players on the approaches to Elderslie golf course is one that inspires for the challenge ahead. On a bright summer’s day the definition provided by well manicured fairways, rough, and trees enhanced by the verdant backdrop of the Newton Woods, stimulates anticipation. There are few courses that provide such a splendid view of first and last holes as you arrive at the car park.
Enjoy your golf at Elderslie. Take advantage of the conveniently situated practice ground to slacken up before teeing off. The course will be in excellent condition through the summer months and the definition of the fairways and greens, resulting from the second cuts and aprons round the putting surfaces, should help with judgment of shots. Be prepared for difficulties if you stray from the fairway or miss the green.
At 6175 yards (approximately 5646 metres) in length, and a par of 70, Elderslie provides a fair challenge to the majority of golfers.
Enjoy the scenery when you reach the higher parts of the course. On clear days there are magnificent views towards the Kilpatrick Hills and Ben Lomond from the seventh and ninth greens. The vista of Gleniffer Braes is the backdrop from the tenth tee and a panoramic view over Glasgow and towards the Campsies greets players on the twelfth and thirteenth tees.
