Haggs Castle Golf Club was formed in 1910. It hosted four European Tour events in the 1980's and is one of the premier Clubs in Glasgow
Haggs Castle Golf Club was formed in 1910 and takes its name from the Castle built in 1585 by Sir John Stirling Maxwell of Pollok, which is one of Glasgow's oldest buildings.
Set in Pollok Country Park, Glasgow's largest park and the only Country Park within Glasgow, it has extensive woodlands and gardens which provides a quiet sanctuary for both visitors and wildlife.
It is host to the Cameron Corbett Vase, a Scottish Golf Union Order of merit event, and counts towards the World Amateur Golf Rankings, thus ensuring a high quality field.
During a golden era in the 1980's Haggs Castle hosted European Tour events, all of which attracted high quality fields.
The back nine is perhaps its best feature of this course, as there are sweeping dog-legs, neat little par threes and tricky, but reachable par fives to contend with. The final run of holes, though, are the best. The 16th has a hard to reach green hidden from the right side of the fairway by trees, while the 17th requires accuracy from the tee and the fairway if you are to walk away with a par.
