Glasgow is Scotland’s most populated city and, as you might expect, has some excellent golf courses in its surrounding area.
An abundance of inland golf courses are found here, with around 30 different places to play. These range from Larkhall near the centre of Glasgow to Biggar, which is around an hour to the south east of the city centre.
The best place to start, though, is Lanark Golf Club. This is the 25th oldest golf club in Scotland and claims to be the oldest inland course in the world. It certainly stands the test of time, however, and is a moorland layout with very firm fairways that often hosts national championships.
Another excellent test of inland golf is Drumpellier. Located in Coatbridge, it is an undulating course that offers brilliant views of the neighbouring Glasgow.
Also to the east of Glasgow is Bothwell Castle, a flat course that has built a reputation for its superb playing surfaces. If you’re looking for something more undulating, then Kirkhill, just a short drive away, is a brilliant option. There are not many courses in the area that will give you better views of the city.
Strathaven Golf Club is another brilliant course. It features plenty of tree-lined holes that will test your accuracy.
No matter where you play your golf in Lanarkshire, you’re sure to find a venue that is going to leave you wanting to go back for more.
