One of the benefits of being a member of a golf club, is that rather than paying for your golf on a round per round basis and paying for a full round every time, is that you don’t have to play 18 holes every time you go out.
If you don’t always have the time to play 18 holes of golf, you can go out late afternoon on a weekend or weekday, or on a weekday evening and play as few or as many holes as you want to. Our course really lends itself to playing shortened rounds, if you just want to blow away the cobwebs or get a bit of extra practice.
The first 10 holes bring you back to the clubhouse or you can play the back 8 holes, provided the way is clear. There are various alternative permutations, involving 5 or 6 holes from the first 10 holes or just play from the 11th to the 16th. You can really get full value out of a club membership as you don’t always have to play 18 holes every time you go out to play. Make the most of your valuable time and get out in the fresh air, whenever it suits you.

A message from the Captain:
Cathcart Castle is a golf club steeped in history and offers a mature, challenging parkland course. The club is owned by and run for members, visitors and guest’s enjoyment. I do hope that all golfers experience the friendly, welcoming atmosphere and excellent facilities that Cathcart Castle Golf Club has to offer.
Cathcart Castle has a full calendar of competitions and social events. There are open competitions during the year in addition to the regular member’s events and various interclub team matches covering all capabilities, including juniors, ladies, and low handicap players.
Our clubhouse offers a varied menu and is able to provide golf meals, snacks, beverages and drinks. The clubhouse can accommodate visiting parties as well as private functions. Members enjoy social events including Band Nights, Burns Supper and Dinner Functions.
Bookings for the Clubhouse and any queries regarding golf membership offers can be made through the office manned throughout the week by David and Alan. You can phone our PGA Professional Stephen Duncan who can also answer any queries on open days competitions and the ever - popular visiting parties.
The members here are very proud of our club but don’t take our word for it. Come and pay a visit to Cathcart Castle Golf Club and see for yourself.
