In their Words…….
Dumbarton Golf Club, a stunning parkland golf course, founded in 1888 is designed to test the straightest of drivers.
Dumbarton Golf Club, one of the oldest in the West of Scotland, owes its existence largely to the fact that in 1887 a few of the towns illustrious shipbuilding sons holidayed at St Andrews. There, inevitably one might say, they tried their “prentice hands on the Old Course”. Although they had them badly bitten, they returned to the 700 year old Royal Burgh, situated where the Leven meets the Clyde, bent on forming a club of their own.
Even when the pioneers returned from St Andrews they were a trifle apprehensive about translating into fact their dreams of constructing a course for the shipyard workers. It is on record that when they launched their scheme they did so “with fear and trepidation” but not without hope that “the King of Games” would find a prominent home in the capital of Lennox(the ancient title of the territory) and that it would prove a blessing to many of its hard worked and exercise needing inhabitants. And so it was, that despite their misgivings, an artisan club was formed in 1888.
The course offers a gentle walk ideal for all ages from young kids to senior citizens while close by to public transport links and a short drive from Loch Lomond.Dumbarton Golf Club
