Cathkin Braes is a delightful 6,208 yard moorland course located just to the east of the conservation village of Carmunnock and seven miles from Glasgow Airport. The original nine holes were set out in 1888 around the Roman Camp on Cathkin Braes.
Cathkin Braes Golf Club is the oldest club in the Glasgow area still playing on its original site, it was increased to an 18 hole course in 1906 with further improvements made years later on the advice of James Braid, the course still retains some of his influence.
The views are superb with Ben Lomond and Ben More located to the north, the valley of the Clyde to the west and the hills of Arran in the distance. The course is fairly flat, though there are some tricky tree-lined holes to contend with, namely the fifth where you must overcome a loch.
Inland, 18 holes, 6208 yards, SSS 71, Par 71
