Opening in 1909 and sitting just outside Glasgow, adjacent to the M74, the Larkhall Golf Club is home to a challenging 9-hole course. Within the clubhouse there are a number of facilities to enjoy in the bar area including a pool table and dartboard, just in case things weren’t quite settled on the course. The club has had many notable visitors over the years, including former Ryder Cup player Eric Brown who, after playing, even had a bush on the course named after him.
Although only 9 holes, the course at Larkhall Golf Club is of the highest order. To consider this alongside any run-of-the-mill 9-hole course would be unfair as a full 18 holes stretches to 6,700 yards; anything but a walk in the park. The course is fairly open with 12 sand hazards to avoid and with no water on the course what you see off the tee is what you get. With a course record of 69 it proves to be a good testament to a fine test of golf.
