Fereneze is a moorland course with panoramic views over the Clyde Valley towards Glasgow and beyond. The views, solitude, natural fauna and wildlife which can be spotted on the course make it difficult to believe that you are only 10 miles and 30 minutes by car from the centre of Glasgow. Many of the holes such as the 4th The Cobbler and the 11th Ben Lomond, are named after distant hills (or Munros as they are known) which are clearly visible on the skyline.
A medium length course by yardage, Fereneze is the nearest thing you will find to a links course without going to the seaside with tightish fairways rewarding accurate driving. The holes meander across the moorland, with each hole presenting a new, envigourating and different vista from the previous one. You do not need to be playing good golf to enjoy this course, though it helps. Local conditions have to be taken into account when playing approach shots to fast and sloping greens and the traditional Scottish ‘bump and run’ shot can be played to great effect. The course has three par fives, none of them an easy par, and four shortish par threes capable of ruining any card. Every hole is unique, and presents a different challenge. The course requires concentration and carefull thought to plot your way from tee to green, always balancing your own ability against the demands of each shot. There are many interesting holes at Fereneze such as the par four 5th with its demanding drive over the gorge where the prevailing wind eases the ball toward the out of bounds on the right, the par five 8th with the decision to cut the corner over the reservoir or play short and safe of the water hazard, the risk and reward shot from the 10th tee, play safe and short but give yourself a long second, or gamble with the gully and go for the long drive. The par 4 18th is downhill and reachable with a following wind (this hole is reputed to have been in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest Hole in One in the UK), but out of bounds lurks to the right and a troublesome ditch runs down the left. This is a worthy finishing hole for any course
