Once you enter the club grounds through the magnificent castle gates you begin to appreciate the attractions the club has to offer its members and visitors. We hope you agree with us that Bothwell Castle is the best golf club in Lanarkshire and one of the best in and around Glasgow and Central Scotland.
Located in the tranquil mature woodland area surrounding the 13th century Bothwell Castle, we are only 10 miles from Glasgow City Centre and easily accessible from all directions being only a mile from the M74 and 2 miles from the M8. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Prestwick Airports are within a 40 minutes drive.
Established over 90 years ago, our flat easily walkable 18 hole course has mature trees framing its manicured fairways and excellent greens. These qualities along with our large modern clubhouse with it’s extensive range of facilities makes us a very popular venue for visitors and visiting society groups, many of whom return year after year.
"The recent course changes greatly enhance the visual and playing quality of the course, making it a greater challenge to golfers of all levels." - Ian Woosnam - Masters Champion
In 2014 the club hosted the Scottish Under 14’s Open Championship for both boys and girls, the first time a national championship has been held in Lanarkshire. 120 golfers mainly from continental Europe and some from as far a field as Argentina and Malaysia competed at the event.
The club has a policy of re-investing all joining fees in course development and this has allowed us over the years to continually develop our facilities. Some significant changes were made in 2014 to the inward nine, officially unveiled when Master’s Champion and winning Ryder Cup Captain Ian Woosnam, Scotland’s No. 1 golfer and Ryder Cup player Stephen Gallagher, and leading Scottish lady professional Pamela Pretswell played the course with club members.
Currently, under the guidance of Paul Kimber at Kimber Golf, the club is in the process of making further amendments to the course to further enhance the golfing experience of its members and golfing visitors.
