In their Words…….
The club was established in 1895 and is one of the oldest in the area. We are a friendly club located conveniently on the south side of the City of Glasgow on the Mearns Road, approx 1 mile from Clarkston Toll on the A727. The James Braid designed golf course is played over undulating parkland and offers a challenge to all levels of golfers.
The course is surrounded by picturesque and panoramic views of the City of Glasgow, and you can also enjoy the fine views towards the North West and Loch Lomond. The course at Cathcart Castle is a traditional parkland course measuring a total distance of 5902 yds, par 69 from the Gents tees will test all levels of amateur golfers.
With a total of 6 par 3’s on the course there are plenty of opportunities to record a good score. However in order to score well at Cathcart Castle you have got to be accurate and manage your game.
Several of the holes on the front 9 are protected by the 2 winding burns which cross the fairways, and most holes are guarded by bunkers. The back 9 starts with a long par 4 which has out of bounds on the right for this hole and the next 7 holes. The many mature birch and pine trees lining the fairways are currently being enhanced by a new tree planting program which is already well in evidence.Cathcart Castle Golf Club
