In their Words…….
Stirling Golf Club one of the most picturesque courses in Scotland, with inspiring backdrops of the Old Town of Stirling, built on ancient volcanic slopes, crowned by the historic Castle rising above spectacular crags and there are stunning views in all directions across Central Scotland, the Ochil and Lomond Hills to the east, and the Carse of Stirling, the Trossachs and the Southern Highlands beyond. Set in the old royal hunting grounds of the Kings Park, Stirling is a golf course of excellent quality and unique character – a golfing experience not to be missed.
Formed in 1869 Stirling Golf Club, celebrated its 140th year in 2009, at a meeting in the town’s Golden Lion Hotel, which had been built almost 100 years earlier and included Robert Burns as one of its famous guests.
In 1873 the Club made its first appointment of a professional Tom Morris Jnr., four times Open Champion and then at the height of his fame, came from St Andrews for the month of April and his terms were 30 shillings a week plus travelling expenses. The original course had consisted of only seven holes, and competitions were played three times round the links.
Then, in 1892, Tom Morris was asked to come through from St Andrews and his adopted plan for nine holes was the first major alteration to the original course. In 1967, Sir Henry Cotton redesigned the course to the current layout, and initiated an extensive tree-planting programme. Mostly deciduous trees favoured to provide spring and autumn colour.
Stirling has developed into a golf course that is both a pleasure to play and a challenge to low and high handicappers alike. The greens are complemented by lush fairways, and the graded rough keeps play moving. The trees have matured and now present beauty and many a hazard.Stirling Golf Club
