Where2Golf says: 

Lanark Golf Club is home to a pleasant moorland layout, located alongside the town of the same name in the Upper Clyde Valley. The club is a 45-minute drive southeast of Glasgow, and is renowned for its smooth fast greens, natural moorland fairways and beautiful unspoilt views across Scotland's rolling South Upland hills.

The 6,428 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 is best known for its excellent quality greens, which are generally fast and true, and a joy to putt on.

Did you know?

Lanark Golf Club was established in October 1851, making it the 25th oldest golf club in the world. At that time the course comprised only six holes laid out on Common Moor in the Royal Burgh of Lanark. Unlike many of the early golf clubs the location of the course has never changed. Golf has now been played on The Moor for almost 160 years.
