In Their Words ...........
Helensburgh Golf Club was founded in August 1893 and the original 9 hole layout was in use by October of the same year. One can only wonder about the quality of the greens at that time. The layout was approved by Old Tom Morris .
By 1905, the course had been extended to 18 holes, largely due to the guidance of the club professional, Tom Turnbull, who served the club for 50 years. Golfers of all shapes and sizes have been enjoying the glorious views from our course high above Helensburgh townsince 1893.
To the south stretches the Clyde Estuary and the hills of the Isle of Arran, to the north lies Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The course is laid out over not too strenuous terrain totalling 5942 yards with a par of 69, and is an enjoyable test of golf for high or low handicaps alike.
