We will update this page throughout the season...
Dear Members and Staff of Callander Golf Club.
On behalf of myself, Mirren, my Assistant Competition Manager, Steven the Rules Official and Annie our Scores Recorder, I would like to sincerely thank all of you for your hospitality and patience with us over the 10th / 11th of August. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, that the welcome and assistance we received from everyone involved with Callander Golf Club, from our initial meeting through to the conclusion of the competition, has surpassed anything we are used to in Special Olympics.
Evelyn, Ashley and Lorna could have done no more in helping us with the organisation within the clubhouse – to tee times and local knowledge about where best to place certain tees for our 10 Hole players.
Mark / Grant and the other green staff – a huge thank you for all that you did, from preparing special tees for the 10 Hole players right through to providing us with a truly testing course which made our players think. Too often we play courses suiting the big hitters. This time, everyone had to map their way round the course and, as a result, it was not a big hitter that won the top gold medal in the Level 5 (18 Hole competition)
I normally have to field complaints from coaches and parents saying that the course is either too hard, too easy not long enough or too long for their players. This time – not one complaint. Quite the opposite.
I have had many e mails from Head Coaches with nothing but compliments about the course, how it was set up and how much their players had enjoyed tackling it.
Our Level 1 (beginner golfers) had an absolute ball at the practice facility initially and to top it off, they had their putting competition on the practice green in front of the clubhouse – their parents and club members. That is an experience that they will always remember.
In conclusion – Thank You All for making the Special Olympics 40th Anniversary Golf Competition one of the most enjoyable and memorable that I have had the privilege of being involved with.
Jamie McDonald – Special Olympics Golf (Competition Manager)
Just a quick note to thank you all very much for your help and assistance last Friday and Saturday. All the players really enjoyed your course and the surroundings. Delighted to say my son won Gold in Div 1 with scores off 60 + 63. Thanks again and I hope to manage up sometime and play myself.
Regards K. Robertson.
Really good day. Had 2 rounds of golf and the rolls on bacon were so tasty we had more after the second round.
Leuke baan met vriendelijke mensen ( Nice job with friendly people)
Have been before and this was just as good as previously. Lady in the pro shop was very friendly and helpful.
Great day out. Bought this as a gift for my husband and father as part of their Father’s Day. They had a round of golf then lunch then another round. They said it was a great course and would definitely go back :)
Nice course, nice welcome ,nice food and even nice weather. Perfect !
Just home after a round at Callander Golf Club this morning. It’s a 50 mile round trip for us but well worth the travel and we will definitely play it again.
Like most courses in the area, the greens have suffered through this extended dry spell but you won't catch a Glaswegian complaining about the sunny weather.
If you are looking for a challenging course, stunning scenery, a nice bite to eat and a friendly welcome, give it a try - Well worth a visit.
Nice course, nice welcome ,nice food and even nice weather.Perfect !
We'll be back!
Super little course, greens suffering at the moment but views more than make up for it. Despite its short length tight fairways and small greens make it a test of golf. Holes from the Avenue provide fantastic views of Ben Ledi. Food very good and club house atmosphere welcoming. Super day out. Thank you - Callander Golf Club.
As per usual Callander golf club delivers. I would say the course is needing a wee bit work done but it’s still a great wee course. Scenery is fantastic. Staff are nice and friendly and make sure you’re well catered for. All in all a great experience.
Really good, well set out golf course. Great day out in a smashing area of the country, will certainly be returning. You can’t beat a great price and deal from itison, thanks.
The staff were extremely helpful. A great friendly clubhouse and a lovely wee course. I have already played the course several times and wouldn't hesitate about returning.
Lovely, friendly wee golf club. The course was in great condition and everyone we met was very helpful and friendly. We had a great day out and will be back.
Course in good condition despite the weather. Staff friendly from start to finish.

Very welcoming club and a good deal. Shame it rained all day so saw none of the famous views. Course suffering from all the rain. Greens very good despite the deluge.
