A wonderful golfing experience awaits you at Lanark, the 25th oldest golf club in the world. The moorland course is one of Scotland’s finest and the clubhouse facilities have recently been upgraded to a high standard. There is a well-stocked professional’s shop, practice area and an interesting little 9-hole course. The resident Chef is very well regarded for outstanding catering.
The course is located just outside the historic market town of Lanark in the Upper Clyde Valley. It is maintained to the highest green-keeping standards and is renowned for its smooth, fast greens, natural moorland fairways and beautiful, unspoilt views across Scotland's rolling South Upland hills.
The course is built on a substrate of glacial sands, providing classic moorland fairways which drain freely and are playable all year. The layout is tough but fair. It is an ideal length and difficulty to challenge the best golfers, yet also hugely rewarding for the average player, not least because of the sheer pleasure of playing a great course in a glorious natural moorland setting surrounded by inspirational scenery.
The 6428 yard, par 70 layout provides a rewarding challenge to golfers of all abilities and has been host to the R&A on 11 occasions as a regional pre-qualifying venue for the Open Championship. The course has hosted the British Girls' Championship in 2005, the Scottish Girls' Championship in 2009, the Scottish Youth Championship in 2013 and it is a frequent PGA Tartan Tour venue. The Girls' Home Internationals will be played here in 2015, followed by the Scottish Boys' Stoke Play Championships in 2016.
