Bathgate Golf Club is a not for profit community club which aims to minimise expenditure so that we can make golf available and affordable for all members – gents, ladies, seniors and juniors. (over 100 juniors). And we also have an illustrious history.

The Ryder Cup Club

Bathgate Golf Club has an illustrious history, having produced 2 Ryder Cup captains (and players) in Eric Brown & Bernard Gallacher and a third Ryder Cup player in Stephen Gallacher.

Eric captained the side in 1969 (when Jack Nicklaus conceded Tony Jacklin’s putt on 18th green in an unbelievable act of sportsmanship) and 1971.

Bernard in 1991 at Kiawah Island – infamous war on the shore. In 1993 at the Belfry and then in 1995 when Europe overcame a deficit for the first when entering the Sunday singles to win the Ryder Cup at Oak Hill in New York.

The most notable other “Bathgate Bairn” is Stephen Gallacher, who represented his country at Boys, Youths and Senior level, tours successfully as a PGA professional and represented Europe in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. (40th Ryder Cup match which Europe won 16 1/2 to 11 1/2)

Check out more detail of these matches on our Ryder Cup page.

We have arguably the best golf course in West Lothian. 
The golf course is in great condition and an excellent James Braid design. James Braid also designed and updated Gleneagles and Carnoustie.

Bathgate Golf Course is an inland, tree lined course.
Majority of golf holes are flat and easy walking but still challenging in true James Braid style. It measures 5120 yards (ladies) and up to 6300 yards (gents) with a Par 70 / 71.

It suits all abilities & ages – gents, ladies, seniors and juniors.
A course worth playing where golfers want to come back.

In conjunction with the club professional, we provide opportunities for any golfer to learn golf / improve their golf skills. We have over 500 Gents, Ladies, & Senior members and a Junior Foundation with over 100 Junior boys and girls (which is largest in West Lothian). We are also particularly keen to encourage more women to become actively involved in golf.

Our excellent catering, club and hall facilities are regularly used by members and local community for meals, family, celebrations and business events.
