Hey all,


Currently looking at a member due to price and location have it down to Ranfurlie and Settlers Run. Settlers being quite a bit more but has pool and gym inclusions so that's a consideration.


Main concern is I know that Settlers really doesn't hold up in the winter months and becomes virtually unplayable. Ranfurlie I am not sure how it holds up.


If anyone can shed any light would be greatly appreciated.

Ranfurlie is a wide open course, which can be boring to play as seem to go up and back. It has links type feel to it, due to no trees.

doesnt have many " memorable holes"


On most holes, its stand on tee and smash it as hard as you can , then go find it (fwys are so wide) the hit it again. Greens are relatively flat so putting is easier.


This may be suitable to some players games and this type of player does enjoy course more than other park style.


Can play all year round, but wind is cold (even in summer)

reciprocal rights at other gsm courses.


Settlers is a difficult course which will really test your game, especially off the gold tees. with a lot of challenging holes.

wide fwys so again you can spray a bit, but if you do your ball will land in hay.


The course never seems to be in perfect condition.

does get wet in winter months but can still play, condition is not always best.

good reciprocal rights arrangements.

Settlers, hands down !

Imagine you're in Scotland during the northern winter and then equate it to our wet season, do you get the difference ?
