In their Words…….
Founded in 1892 Pollok was remodelled by Dr Alister MacKenzie in the 1920s shortly before he moved to America where he designed Cypress Point and Augusta amongst many fine courses. MacKenzie’s design philosophy states that “a really great golf course must be a constant source of pleasure to the greatest possible number of players. It must require strategy in the playing as well as skill.
It must give the average player a fair chance and at the same time, it must require the utmost from the expert. All natural beauty should be preserved, natural hazards should be utilized and artificiality should be minimized”.
Pollok has earned an International reputation of being one of the best manicured and maintained inland courses in Scotland. Its history is deep in tradition and culture and its aim is to consistently achieve the highest standards of professionalism and hospitality in golf. The golf course is laid out in the Pollok Estate, next door to the Internationally renowned Burrell Collection, with the White Cart Water meandering between the cordons of Ash, Beech, Elm and Chestnuts that are its boundaries.
The clubhouse is large and modern with an excellent range of catering facilities. So whether you want a quick snack before or after your game or want to sit down to lunch or dinner, the choice is yours. In recent times, Pollok spent £1.2 million on developing its clubhouse, now one of the finest in Scotland.Pollok Golf Club
