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.

Following discussions match and handicap are proposing to hold a Texas Scramble on Sunday September 28th which is open to all members starting at 8am. The singles start at 11:30am at Gleneagles so we are very keen to give you a competitive game and be back in the clubhouse to enjoy the golf all afternoon.Downside:
We have limited spaces and can only accommodate 19 teams of 4. The start sheet will be online and at the club from Wednesday 24th at 7:15pm. You are not booking a time merely registering your team. It is possible a ballot may have to take place.
15th September 2014
Further to the news on the 12th the extended startsheet has now been fully booked. Please contact the pro shop from Wednesday morning onwards to be added to the reserve list if you wish to play.
Friday 12th Sep:
The Ryder Cup members day on 20th Sep was fully subscribed to last night so we have extended the available playing time through until 2:30pm in order to create a further 12 playing slots for any members who were unable to get a booking.
9th September 2014
We posted recently with details for the members day that we'll be holding on Saturday 20th. Competition booking will be open for this comp on Thursday evening at 7:15pm and you'll be able to book either via BRS or from the clubhouse as normal.
For this event only you will be able to book on behalf of FOUR individual members rather than the normal three. Idea being to allow you to book yourself and partner along with another 2-ball that you'd like to play with. The start sheet will be lifted directly from BRS and you will play with whoever you are initially booked with. Likewise, your time will not be changed. The only exception to this will be in the event of single players booking a single slot - M&H will likely have to manually manage such groupings to create pairs. If this happens you will be notified of changes via the usual BRS email.
Tee times will be available from 7:30am thru 2:00pm which allows for 160 participants.
The disco planned for later in the evening has completely sold out but if you're still interested in tickets please ask the bar staff to add you to the standby list.
8th September 2014
The Matchplay finals are to be held this Sunday and there are a couple of players in more than one final. This will be discussed at tonights match and handicap. The sequence of play will be posted online and at the club from tomorrow so please look out for it. If you are due to play in a final but as stated previously the other player is in two finals we will try to fit the new date to suit all parties.
The tankard finals are due to be played on Saturday 27th so please check the notice board to see if you have qualified. Tee times are booked but you can play at anytime on the day just contact the pro shop
