Glasgow Golf Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1787

Glasgow Golf Club (also known as Killermont) is a private club, exclusively for the use of members and their invited guests. The Club also owns and operates the Gailes Links golf course (originally known as "Glasgow Gailes") on the Ayrshire coast, which is open for public play.

Located in the Killermont area of Glasgow's upmarket suburb of Bearsden, Glasgow Golf Club is home to an immaculately presented parkland course. Originally laid out by Old Tom Morris, the course never strays too far from the opulent mansionesque clubhouse, from which the 18 holes head out-and-back in five loops. Although rather short by modern standards, the stylishly bunkered layout provides a pleasant round in an attractive parkland setting.

The Club's stately mansion clubhouse predominantly dates from 1804, when Archibald Campbell-Colquhoun inherited the Killermont Estate and added the current classical main section to what was a more modest dwelling.

Did you know?

Glasgow Golf Club is the world's ninth oldest golf club. It was founded in 1787, seven years after the Town Council started issuing permits for playing golf on Glasgow Green (although records show that golf was played in Glasgow almost 200 years before). Pressure of play at Glasgow Green forced the Glasgow Golf Club to move to a new layout in Queen's Park in 1870. There followed subsequent moves to Alexander Park (1874) and Blackhill (1895), before the Club finally settled in the early 1900s into its present Killermont site on the north side of the River Kelvin.
