Bridge of Allan golf course requires a climb on several holes, but the golfer is rewarded with spectacular views over the Ochill Hills, the Forth Valley and north to the mountains of Tayside. Old Tom Morris designed this course in 1894 and it has stood the test of time well.
The first is an extremely challenging hole. A par three, it is 223-yards uphill with a stone dyke about 45 yards in front of the green - there are very few members who can carry the dyke!
Lay up short of the dyke and leave yourself enough space to chip over the wall to the flag.
Recently long standing member George Reid removed the bench from the 5th tee to his home and has completely renovated it.
George has replaced the spars, bolts and rebuilt it before returning it to the club.
George is a retired first class joiner, so needless to say, the quality of the job is 'there to be seen'
Thank you George.
