Location and Route Planning

In their Words…….

Golf has been played in Lybster for over a hundred years.

The original course was situated at the Black Park (the present location). In 1904, after the completion of the Wick to Lybster Light Railway, the course was moved to the Reisgill Burn, just to the south side the village.

In 1926 the club moved back to its present location and the club was formally established and a constitution drawn up. In recognition of the fact that our clubhouse is the former ticket office and that the railway line bisected the course, we adopted the steam train in our club logo. The train, which ran between Wick and Lybster, was referred to locally as the ‘Coffee Pot’. The Wick to Lybster Light Railway, which bisected the course, was closed in 1944.

In the mid 1970s the railway ticket office was refurbished, and is now the clubhouse. Our equipment store, at the back of the first green, was previously the clubhouse!

As Lybster Golf Club (LGC) is one of the (if not the) shortest 9 hole courses (3,858 yards, par 62, SSS 61) in Scotland it is very popular with a wide range of golfers of varying age groups and abilities.

Our longest hole is only 318 yards and our shortest (although by no means the easiest) is only 90 yards. The entire course is laid out in only 15 acres of land. The benefit of this is that you are never miles away from the clubhouse / car park if you have had enough or if the weather becomes inclement.

Membership is open to all – no waiting lists! Either call in at the village Post Office, contact the Club Secretary or complete and submit the on-line application form.

A warm welcome, and a golfing challenge, awaits you at Lybster Golf Club.
