8 reviews of Green Hotel Golf Courses
Played both courses in recent golfing trip in decent weather conditions.
The pro - with a name like Greig McSporran I think he might be Scottish ;-) - was very welcoming. The pro shop was well stocked, though he didn't carry a big variety of golf balls for some reason.
The courses themsleves are both decent tracks, though I think the Montgomerie was the better of the two. They were both set up pretty similar - rough not too penal but tree lined rfairways made for straight hitting. Good use of natural hazards provided additional interest.
Several Par 5s on both courses are pretty comfortably reached by reasonably big hitters. The Par 3s on the Montgomerie were very good, with the 17th particularly playing a lot longer than you think. I thought the 3s on the Bruce were a little weak and let the course overall down a bit.
Tee beds and fairways were well manicured but the greens were really very poor. Clearly they are still recovering from the harsh winter, a couple on the Montgomerie in particular - 14 and 18 - had little or no grass on them. The rest were very slow, something I think was deliberate as they were clearly trying to get some growth into them and probably hadn't cut them to normal length. They were disappointing though, and looked to me to be a good 6-8 weeks behind where they should have been.
In the clubhouse afterwards we were well looked after by friendly staff.
I would return at a future date when the greens are hopefully back in top condition.
Played both of these courses recently and despite a heavy downpour they were in excellent condition. My favourite is the Montgomerie - scenery is stunning.
There are some challenging holes and these courses would entertain golfers of all abilities.
The Members and staff we encountered were all very friendly.
Played both courses on a day ticket. Blue course very challenging - every hole is impressive after the 3rd - Red course seems much easier yet almost equal in length to Blue. This is probably the friendliest course i've visited, including both the staff in the pro shop and the members we met on the course. Can't fault a single thing about Kinross - excellent day out.
Played the course on Sat 27th March 2004, when light rain turned into torrential downpour (quite after 9 holes).
Staff very friendly, and welcoming, course very quiet. Managed to get a tee booking without any fuss (on a weekend morning !!) Played with a newcomer, who has been hooked on the game since his first experience.
Fairways were in fabulous condition and plenty of water hazards to get you thinking.
Greens were a bit waterlogged, but that could have been the weather (as it was very wet, even for Scotland)
Would definately play again, although perhaps I'd check on the weather first.
Played both courses, simply a superb location. Just a shame that the courses are in such appalling condition.The greens and the rough are awful. The bunkers are full of stones, all in all poorly kept and untidy , it does not deserve the fee.
Played the Blue course in June 2000. This course is superb. Excellent condition, frightening greens (especially 4th), stunning scenery and tranquility abounds. Millionaire golf. Returning to play the Red next year.
Played both courses on a recent golfing break and despite recent very heavy rain
locally, they were in excellent condition. Although equally enjoyable, the blue course is definately superior both in terms of challenge & beauty.
The Club House is a must visit for reasonably priced, good quality food & beer.
I have played this course many times as my Grandfather has been a member for many years. I have got to say that both the blue and the red courses are as spectacular and good as each other. No matter what part of the course that you are on, you are sure that you will be given, the peace and quiet, the challenge of the course and finally the spectacular views that you deserve. This course is a must for any golfer.
