The Scotsman includes Callander among its list of the best golf courses in their 4th February 2009 issue, ahead of Carnoustie's Championship Course. Peter MacMichael describes Callander as 'great fun to play'. It is no accident that Golf Monthly rated Callander among the top ten courses in Scotland for visitors, alongside Gleneagles, Turnberry and St. Andrews. The National Club Golfer magazine described Callander as a fantastically secluded location, diverse holes with great greens and stunning views of Ben Ledi and the Trossachs all combine to create a memorable experience. Scotland's Golf Gems stated The backdrop at Callander is as uplifting as the course is diverse and it is a pleasure to see your ball scorching towards its target against such amazing scenery.
