With spectacular views of the River Clyde and the Kilpatrick Hills, the new 18-hole Earl of Mar championship golf course at Mar Hall would be a star turn in any Scottish golf itinerary. Set within the grounds of the luxury 5-star Mar Hall Golf & Spa Resort, it is conveniently located only ten minutes from Glasgow Airport.

Extending to over 6,500 yards, the par-70 Earl of Mar course was designed by renowned golf course architect and PGA professional, Dave Thomas. Despite its tender age, the mature trees and historic grounds of the 19th century Mar Hall Estate give the impression of a long-established golf course. Designed to appeal to golfers of all levels, the course comprises two par-5s, twelve par-4s and four par-3s, all of which feature mature trees and the challenge of strategically placed bunkers.
With 10-minute tee times, a bag drop facility and a full locker room attendant service, golf at Mar Hall has all the attributes of an exclusive private members' club experience.
Since opening in 2004, Mar Hall has become recognised as one of Scotland's top 5-star golf & spa resorts. Its secluded woodland setting on the banks of the River Clyde, combined with its proximity to Glasgow Airport, make it a popular destination for visitors to the city. Mar Hall offers the best of both worlds, with first class golf, an Aveda Destination Spa, luxurious suites and fine dining, all only twenty minutes away from the main shopping and business districts in the city.
Mar Hall Hotel, Spa & Golf as a whole was truly magnificent, the staff at Mar Hall were all extremely welcoming. The rooms were well laid out also.
After a game of golf on their well laid out course, which is challenging for all handicaps as well as some excellent views along the River Clyde, we called into the Spike bar for a refreshing beer or maybe two!! Even though it was a 5 star Hotel & Spa, the bar price was reasonable at only £4.30 for a bottle of beer.
Thereafter, it was great to fall into the pool for a dip, and the sauna was great also.
Overall, the venue was great and it truly was excellent value for money. I would rate our overall experience, from booking with YGT to checkout, as 9 out of 10.
Since using YGT for the first time last year, I have been recommending them to anyone who will listen.
Looking forward to booking our next trip through YGT...
