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.

Just an update about fees at this time of year. You still have until March 31st to pay your fees by cash, credit card or cheque. If you wish to join the direct debit scheme you must give the office your details by March 17th. Forms are available at the club. On a couple of other points, we have had a number of new members join and I would remind members that if you introduce a new member you get £50 credit on your gold card. If you are a returning member, you only pay a joining fee ONCE at Bathgate. Remember about you family as well and get them a Family Membership so they can use the clubhouse in your absence. To those members that have not yet picked up a raffle ticket book please do so as we need to raise as muuch money as possible.

Bernard presented the club with the defibrillator yesterday and we are delighted to be involved in his campaign. Thank you to Stephen's Foundation for donating it through one of his donors. It was a good day at the club and it was very good of the Gallacher family to turn up to support the event. There is a nice piece about it in today's Scotsman newspaper. some photo's are available to view on Facebook. Good luck to Bernard and the Junior Section on Friday night at the SGU awards in Glasgow.
