Westerwood Golf & Country Club

Nestling in 400 acres on the edge of the Kilsyth Hills, only 12 miles from Glasgow City Centre, Westerwood has been carefully designed (by Seve Ballesteros and Dave Thomas) to merge into the landscape. The resident professional and the Scottish National Golf Centre team are on hand to provide expert tuition and assist in the organisation of corporate golf events, which are a speciality. Without doubt the most spectacular hole must be the 15th, aptly named the Waterfall which is set against a 40 foot rock face.

Clober Golf Club

Clober, although a short course, requires skill in chipping to play it well with eight par-3s. The signature hole is a par 3 with out of bounds both left and right and a burn flowing in front of the tee.

Buchanan Castle Golf Club

18 holes 6059 yards par 70 Buchanan Castle was established in 1936 and is owned by the Duke of Montrose. It is a lush parkland course offering mountains, river and forest near the shores of Loch Lomond. It is a stunningly beautiful parkland course a place you will remember with affection. It is only a few miles off the direct route from the city to the famous attractions of the Trossachs and is perfectly served by the lovely village of Drymen. Visitors are advised to book in advance.

Loch Lomond Golf Club

Nestled alongside the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond is a parkland treasure that has come to be known as Loch Lomond Golf Club. A private club for the exclusive use of its members and their guests, Loch Lomond sits on the historic Clan Colquhoun estate, which is steeped in Scottish tradition dating back to the 12th century. As Scotland is known as the birthplace of golf, Loch Lomond enjoys the history and tradition associated with golf in the homeland, yet the Club provides an experience uniquely its own.

Bishopbriggs Golf Club

18 holes, 6041 yards, par 69 The golf course lies within the boundaries of original Kenmure Estate purchased by Charles Stirling (a West India trader) in 1806. A significant element of policy woodland broad-leafed species oak, ash, beech etc established at that time still remains today. The Bishopbriggs burn which meanders through the course all adds to an enjoyable and challenging golfing experience.

Bearsden Golf Club

9 holes, 6014 yards, par 68 The golf course is a challenging par 68 for men and an equally challenging par 71 for ladies. The course plays as a nine hole layout but has 16 different greens. This makes the course ideal for people who only want to play 9 holes, but at the same time does not take away from the difficulty of the course for those out for 18. The club has a deserved reputation for friendliness and informality.
