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.

A member asked about other members travelling to the Ryder Cup and it may be worthwhile ensuring your arrangements are made now. I have just looked at Scotrails schedule for travelling by train and they have limited options. The Saturday only has a train leaving Waverly at 05:30am. Please consider your options now.

It's a busy weekend this weekend starting at 6:30am on Saturday with the Silloth invitation. Note from Food Creations that they are laying on a special buffet for members and guests so leave some room for what looks to be a very good spread.

We received some great news today at the Club with the announcement that Joe Bryce had been selected to represent Scotland in the Boys Home Internationals. The matches will be played next week at Western Gailes. This is the first time since Stephen Gallacher that one of our Juniors has been capped! Well done Joe, well deserved!
