The Club was formed at a meeting held on 12th May 1892 and the original 9 holes layout was prepared by Mr William Park (Junior) of Musselburgh.
Bathgate is very proud to have produced two Ryder Cup Captains in Eric Brown and Bernard Gallacher. Stephen Gallacher is an honorary member and is still playing on the European tour. In 2014 the club have plans to celebrate the Ryder Cup being held in Scotland. The club would like to extend a welcome to the many visitors that will be visiting Scotland in 2014 and you will be very welcome to play our golf course. A little bit of history about the club is that after the course was extended to 18 holes a match between two professionals marked the official opening on 11th May 1907, Mr Ben Sayers of North Berwick and Mr Willie Fernie of Troon partnered by two amateur members of the Club. Visitors welcome.
