Bathgate Golf Club - Home
The course has 18 holes measuring 6328 yards par 71, SSS 71. The layout is generally flat and easy walking.
Various Practice Areas including practice nets, three putting greens
The Club is situated 2 miles from the main M8 motorway which bisects central Scotland and Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling can all be reached by car in under half an hour.
The Club is located in the town centre itself and the clubhouse is a five minute walk from the railway station which has a direct link to Edinburgh and Glasgow Queen Street via Airdrie.
The course provides an excellent test of golf, evidenced by the quality of players it has produced. The Club are delighted to have produced two Ryder Cup Captains in Eric Brown and Bernard Gallacher. Eric captained the side in 1969 and 1971 and Bernard of course in 1991, 1993 and 1995.
The Club has produced other international players most notably Stephen Gallacher who represented his country at Boys, Youths and Senior level and is now a successful touring professional.

As the clubhouse gets a little quieter for the next few months it is always a good idea to try and catch up on some details. Could I ask members to ensure we have the most up to date address and e-mail for you. You can update your details on the booking system but I still need to change details in the office.
To all of our new members that came on board this year please let me know if you are managing to find your way around ok. Remember I am in the office everyday and if I happen to be elsewhere I try to ensure Angela is here. If you have any queries at all please give us a call.
There is a lot going on with the course during the winter. We are draining 3 greens with the "Whizz wheel" A lot of GUR areas will be returfed. The new ditch at the right hand side of the 14th will help with the drainage.The "road" on the 1st and 14th is being lifted and returfed after all these years. There is plenty to keep the guys busy.
I am preparing the budgets for next year(sorry has to be done) and there will be a complete review on the condition of the clubhouse, so plenty to keep me busy as well.

Sorry but we are at that time of the year again. From Saturday November 1st mats must be used if playing from the fairways and on all par 3 tees. You have the option of dropping in the rough but you still require a mat for the par 3 tees.
