Founded in 1907 from its original roots in the Scotstoun area of Glasgow, Balmore Golf Club has grown to become one of the most renowned golf courses in the west of Scotland. Designed by James Braid, the course boasts some of the most demanding holes to be found in the area. Set in stunning countryside, it is difficult to imagine that the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow lies only 7 miles to the south west.
The Carrick championship course, which is designed by Doug Carrick, is an inspiration. The 18 holes are divided by a fault line with the first nine holes in the Lowlands and the back nine in the Highlands, boasting stunning views of Ben Lomond and the great loch.
Nestling in 400 acres on the edge of the Kilsyth Hills, only 12 miles from Glasgow City Centre, Westerwood has been carefully designed (by Seve Ballesteros and Dave Thomas) to merge into the landscape. The resident professional and the Scottish National Golf Centre team are on hand to provide expert tuition and assist in the organisation of corporate golf events, which are a speciality. Without doubt the most spectacular hole must be the 15th, aptly named the Waterfall which is set against a 40 foot rock face.
Nestled alongside the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond is a parkland treasure that has come to be known as Loch Lomond Golf Club.

As Scotland is known as the birthplace of golf, Loch Lomond enjoys the history and tradition associated with golf in the homeland, yet the Club provides an experience uniquely its own.
