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.
