Booked tee time the day before and made our way to the course. Upon entering the shabby and poorly stocked Pro Shop we were greeted by a surly and un helpful 'Pro'. Told us there were no buggies available, even when someone came in and handed the keys back, the guy just lied and told us the person handing in the keys had 'found them'. There were three buggies parked outside.

After we played the 1st we noticed that there were 4 rowdy lads behind us who'd been given buggies. They were drinking vodka straight from the bottle and generally behaving in an unsocialble manner, we let them play through as we didn't want them behind us putting us off the whole time.

The views from the course are spectacular but that is where the good ends. The course is very unkept and could be doing with some major work. The greens are very mossy and the water hazards are dried out and full of litter. The bins at the tees were also full of litter and hadn't been emptied for quite some time.

All in all very dissappointing. Obviously this was formerly a lovely course but not anymore. We certainly won't be returning.

Played in the Gleddoch Quaich (an annual open competition)on 1st June 2014. Me and my partner has played this competition for the last 25 years and come 2nd three times. Course has a fantastic view over the Clyde estuary and towards Glasgow. last year the greens were poor but we put it down to the weather conditions during Spring time. This year the course overall were poor with most bunkers marked as GUR. The fairways were clearly just cut with a tractor and no other maintenance had taken place. Tee markers were clearly placed by a non golfer and the bins had not been emptied for some time. Overall the course looked tired and unkempt and reminded us of a corporation public course. Fairways were in poor conditions with the draining failing in many places. What had over the years become a highly rated course had been allowed through lack of investment and attention to deteriorate into a mediocre place. Nowhere to clean you trolley after-worth and the single shoe cleaner had lost all its bristles and was simply an expression of the rest. Disappointing

Played Gleddoch today, 26th May 2014. Course was in a very poor condition with tee areas, fairways, bunkers and greens waterlogged. Greens hadn't been switched and consequently had dirt mounds. Pathways were in dire need of repair. I've played at over a dozen Scottish courses this year and enjoyed playing them all, but Gleddoch is in serious need of a makeover. If you're thinking of trying a different course, give Gleddoch a miss !!

Played the course (28th July) on a twighlight special from Tee-times online (only £15)
On the day, it had rained almost all day, and by the time we teed off it was still drizzling and wet, but the course certainly made up for it.
Each hole had something of interest, different challenges, well placed bunkers, burns running through the fairways, sometimes 2 burns, elevated greens, elevated tees, sloping fairways.
The par 3's were also different, and enjoyable.
True by the end of the round the fairways (whcih were excellent) were starting to show a little ponding water, but it had rained heailly all day. Can only imagine how good the course would have been in better conditions.
Would I recommend it, YES, would I play again, definately.
10/10.

Played the course on Saturday 16th July and was plesantly surprised after reading previous reviews.
After waking up to torrential rain I feared the worst about flooding on the course and the effect it might have on the greens but found only a few small areas of water in the rough.
The greens are among the best I have played on for an inland course this year. With the tees and fairways in near immaculate condition ( par 3 tees have the usual wear and tear).
As noted on previous reviews, the scenery and layout allow for some stunning views of the river clyde and surrounding area.
A special mention must go to the final 4 holes that I feel are the highlight of the course.
All in all a great experience from hole 1-18 and a course I would recommend and will play again in the future.

Great layout with fantastic views. Some realy challenging holes. Not the best tee's or greens I've ever played on though. I believe that the old owners never gave the green keeper the funds to carryout the work required and he has been under resourced for the past ten years. Lets hope the new owners Swallow Hotels spend the money required to bring the course up to the standard it deserves.You can of course get bacon rolls if you desire them

Played this course numerous times. Excellent course, very challenging and greens are well maintained. Never too busy that you are being delayed with play and never being pushed to the next hole. K.Fraser Glasgow

Played Gleddoch in September. The welcome was warm and the weather was good, I thought this golf course had a wonderful setting with fantastic views around the Renfrewshire area. It proved to be a very challenging course in very good condition with quality greens and superb fairways. The clubhouse had good changing facilities yet could do better on the catering side.
