Officially opened in 1923 the course was designed by a Mr Adam from Glasgow. Although always 18 holes, the golf course we have today bears little resemblance to the one first laid out. Significant changes over the years have included the introduction of 7 new holes in 1973 and the building of a new clubhouse in a new position in 2004. More changes introduced in 2014 and current development plans will ensure it will be a Central Scotland ‘must play’ course in years to come.
Surrounded by trees, Bothwell Castle is a mature parkland golf course with tree lined manicured fairways, strategically positioned open ditches and bunkering, with quality greens to provide sufficient challenges for golfers of all levels of ability.
Our signature holes are the par 3 eighth with its bunker surrounded green and the delightful par 5 eighteenth. - Alan McCloskey
Easily walkable, the course is flat with only minor undulations. At 6224yds off the medal tees the par 70 course is just above the average length for a Scottish golf course. The course is 5955yds from the yellow tees and 5394 from the red tees.
Our signature holes are the par 3 eighth with its bunker surrounded green and the delightful par 5 eighteenth with its sloping green protected by a pond and open ditch, for those enticed to go for it in two.
