The New Course at Piperdam is a wonderful and unique test of Scottish parkland golf with a par of 71 and can play anything from a challenging 6305 yards off the back tees to a more sympathetic length off our other tees. Club medals and other competitions are typically played from the white tees and the blues provide a most enjoyable and fun game for a relaxed days golf. This is not set in stone though like at many clubs and visitors are always welcome to play from which ever tees they might prefer.
The key to good scoring here is to play the five par 3's well, they provide a tricky test with water in play on a couple of occasion, None of them have any great length here but you need to be careful with your club selection and play for the heart of the greens, par is a good score on any of them. Negotiate these and there are some excellent birdie opportunities to be had on the par 5's if you play them with just the right balance of aggression and caution.
They can be a great place to pick up a few shots but all have the potential to punish the over confident. The par fours provide good variety and a mixture of yardages from the longer pair at 6 & 7 to the short and occasionally drivable 16th. All in all if you focus on keeping your ball in the fairway off the tee rather than on maximum distance then you’ll put yourself in a great position to score well but we all know that scoring comes down to holing putts. Our greens have an enviable reputation for quality and pace so aim for the high side of the hole as the can break a little more than you think
