Cawder Golf Club (Cawder course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1934

Cawder Golf Club is home to two pleasantly tree-lined and open parkland layouts, the championship Cawder course and par-68 Keir course. Located alongside the River Kelvin, about a 20-minute drive north from central Glasgow, this James Braid designed layout occupies a picturesque setting, far from the bustle of city life.

The Kelvin River flows past the northern boundary of the course, while all around is the the natural beauty of the Campsie hills. The historic Antonine Wall meanders through the course, although you'll probably need to ask a club member for the exact routing of this Roman-built turf fortification. Providing a wonderful back drop to the downhill par-3 18th hole is the Club's 18th century clubhouse, built in 1764.

Did you know?

Cawder Golf Club is located in East Dunbartonshire, alongside the village of Cadder, from which it takes its slightly adjusted name. Situated on the Forth & Clyde Canal, near the River Kelvin, Cadder was the site of a Roman fortification on the Antonine Wall. The wall, a turf fortification built on stone foundations, represented the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire. It was built by the Romans as a defensive wall between the Firth of Clyde and Firth of Forth.

Cawder (aka Cadder) should not be confused with Cawdor, as used by William Shakespeare in his famous Scottish play, Macbeth. The "Cawdor" of Macbeth fame is located outside Nairn (173 mi north of Cawder), and is home to a 14th-century castle.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
