Glenbervie Golf Club, home to a pleasantly tree-lined and open parkland layout, is located just outside Falkirk on the Stirling Road. Against the backdrop of the Ochil hills, five-time Open Champion James Braid made excellent use of the natural setting and native hazards to create this enjoyable parkland layout.
MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: Glenbervie's infamous par-4 9th (Bluebell Wood) is a tough 435-yard dog-legging hole demanding an uphill drive with out-of-bounds on your right. Arguably the best looking hole on the course is the par-4 14th (Braid's). Again played uphill with the Ochil hills in the distance, it features the clubhouse as a backdrop.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Located alongside the course is the award-winning Glenbervie House Hotel (Aurora Hotels), an exclusive-use venue that is popular for weddings, conferences and other organised events. It does not cater for single-night stop-overs for visitors to Glenbervie Golf Club, unless you hire the entire 12-guest room hotel. Also adjacent to the golf course, Aurora Hotels operate the Coach House at Glenbervie, a six-bedroom luxury property hireable on an exclusive use basis.
John Panton, one of the Scotland's most successful golfers, was the golf professional at Glenbervie for almost 40 years. In 1983 the club hosted the British Boys Amateur Championship, when 17-year-old José María Olazábal from Spain beat Marc Pendaries from France in the 36-hole final.
