In their Words…….
Voted one of Scotland’s hidden gems by US Sports Illustrated, Glencorse was founded in 1890 and designed by Willie Park. Many famous golfers are associated with our club such as George Macgregor OBE, former Walker Cup Captain and currently Captain of the R&A and Bernard Gallagher, former Ryder Cup Captain who are both members.
With views of the Pentland Hills and the lush green surroundings, Glencorse provides a warm welcome to all, a friendly, picturesque, inland parkland course with many trees and the Glencorse Burn that affects 10 holes.
The 18 hole course of 5217 yards may have eight par three’s (five for ladies) but it certainly cannot be described as an easy course, only one par three is under 200 yards.
Hazards include the numerous lines of trees that line the fairways and on several holes, the burns appear to act as magnets for your golf ball. The trees are growing taller year on year with the result your recovery shot from the neighbouring fairway is not as straightforward as it once was.
Glencorse is a formidable test for the highest quality golfer, but still great fun for the more modest competitor. It is ideal for a day’s golf.Glencorse Golf Club
