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.

Just a quick update on some house matters. The roof repair should be finished on Monday and then the kitchen will be back up and running fully again. The new caddy store is being fitted out and should be finished around the end of the month. There is a new code for the door and you can get this from the proshop. We are still changing lights to low energy halogen ones and this is happening in the main hall at present.
The Ryder Cup room has a new ceiling fitted and we are progressing with a new glass cabinet to allow the Senior section to use the old Ryder Cup glass cabinet for their trophies.
The office is all but complete and feels like an office now.
The first draft of drawings and designs for the roof are due on Monday and a presentation on this will be made at the AGM.

After around 20 years we have upgraded to a new handicapping and membership system. It is still with the same company but it is a new "cloud" version. It will take the club a little time to get familiar with it and I am sure there will be hiccups along the way! The real test will be in a few weeks when the bills are sent out. On the subject of bills could you please let us know if you wish to leave direct debit. If you are happy to keep using it you need do nothing.
