Kilmacolm Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Kilmacolm Golf Club Est. 1891

Where2Golf says: 

Kilmacolm Golf Club, home to a pleasant heathland layout, is located alongside the village of the same name, about a 30-minute drive west of central Glasgow. Exuding an undulating heathland feel, not unlike the revered courses of Gleneagles in Scotland, Kilmacolm offers scenic views across the surrounding hills and natural countryside.

Laid out by James Braid, and lined with fir trees, bracken, heather and whins (gorse), Kilmacolm is another in Scotland's prodigious treasure chest of golfing gems. Measuring a relatively modest 5,961 yards from the back tees, the out-and-back layout is characterised by plenty of elevation change, which provides a thorough test for players of all skill levels.

The five-time Open Champion completed his design of the course in 1924. Since that time Kilmacolm has regularly received excellent reviews, not least from four-time Open Champion Walter Hagen and Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher.

Did you know?

The neighbouring village of Kilmacolm takes its name from the Scottish Gaelic "Cill MoCholuim", indicating the dedication of its church to St Columba of Iona. The area around the village was first settled by humans as far back as the Stone Age, and remained a relatively small farming village and religious hub for the parish. The village changed considerably with the arrival of the railway in Kilmacolm in 1869, transforming into an affluent dormitory village to the nearby towns of Paisley and Greenock, and the city of Glasgow.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
