Dougalston is a real parkland treat measuring 6,120 yards and with beautiful tree-lined fairways, natural water hazards and stunning views over the Campsie Fells, you’ll find it hard to believe that it lies just seven miles north of Glasgow.
The full 18-hole layout opened fairly recently and, although it took the new holes a few months to get up to speed, the finished project proved that it was well worth the wait and, as a result, the course and accompanying health club have now become immensely popular for visitors.
As soon as you head out onto the course, you’re greeted by one of the many water hazards that can be found. The first requires a tee shot over a large pond, although by all means get the driver out and lash one over the trees towards the green. Pull that shot off and you could get off to an eagle start. There are many great holes throughout your round, although the par-3 18th, with water far right and bunkers on both sides of the green, provides a wonderful finish.
