Stand by, Glasgow! The city’s latest golf facility is almost here.

Built on the site of the former Lethamhill municipal golf course, GolfIt! will open for business on Saturday, August 5.

A community-based golf and entertainment facility located on the south bank of Hogganfield Loch, the vast new indoor and outdoor attraction is a first-of-its-kind innovation by the R&A designed to make golf more accessible and inclusive.

It features a range of introductory golf formats, including a twist on pitch and putt, adventure golf and community putting greens, plus a double-decker floodlit driving range and a new-look nine-hole course for all the family to play.

These sit alongside other attractions and activities such as padel tennis courts, nature trails, bike hire and street food-style dining and drinks area.

Bookings are now being taken to use GolfIt!, with rounds of golf starting from only £8.

R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers previously shared his hope that GolfIt! will help to create playing opportunities for more people of all ages and backgrounds.

“Golf It! Is an ambitious project and fantastic opportunity for residents of Glasgow and visitors to the city to be introduced to the sport in a welcoming, inclusive and enjoyable environment,” he said.

“The range of features at Golf It! makes this a destination like no other. We want this to be a place where everyone from this great city and further afield can feel at home.

“GolfIt! will enable people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to be a part of a community-driven facility that levels the playing field and provides new pathways into golf.

“It marks a significant commitment by the R&A to re-establish the sport’s roots in the heart of Scotland and take golf into communities that may never have seen it as a viable, family-friendly activity before.”
