Scottish golf club saved from the brink of closure

Polmont Golf

Fantastic news!

Polmont Golf Course has been saved from closure at the eleventh hour.  

The nine-holer, situated between Falkirk and Linlithgow, was staring at oblivion just last weekend after the club committee announced that, due to an untenable financial position, it “could not continue to operate”.

In the same announcement, posted on the club’s Facebook page, it was said that it would cease trading within 48 hours.

The outcome? A good one for all associated with the 118-year-old club.
