Mar Har – Earl of Mar
The Earl of Mar Championship Golf Course at Mar Hall has spectacular views over the River Clyde and the Kilpatrick Hills. The host of the 2012 EuroPro Tour Event, the course was designed by architect Dave Thomas, who is best known for his work at The Belfry, San Roque and La Manga.
This is a good looking golf course that is shaped around 250 year old sweet chestnut and beech trees with strategically placed bunkers to provide a challenging test of golf.
t has a traditional parkland layout that offers a fair amount of challenges balanced by generous fairways that are beginner-friendly. Many holes present interesting risk-reward opportunities where good strategy and some skill will get you far, but they are not too punishing if you are slightly errant.
Weaving through the trees requires accuracy and numerous strategically placed bunkers emphasize its importance even further. There are only a few holes that play right alongside the river though golfers will enjoy scenic views on almost every hole.
