Play when you choose and play as many holes as you want

One of the benefits of being a member of a golf club is that you don’t have to play 18 holes every time you go out if you dont want to and you get great value for your membership.

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 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 have to pay or play 18 holes, every time you play. Make the most of your valuable time and get out in the fresh air, whenever it suits you.

A message from the Captain:

On behalf of our members and staff, I wish you a very warm welcome to Cathcart Castle Golf Club.

We offer a mature, challenging 18 hole parkland course which has recently been widely praised for its excellent condition particularly our greens which are superbly maintained by our head greenkeeper Scott Davidson and his staff. The course is one of the oldest in the area and has outstanding views of Glasgow and beyond.

We are known for being a friendly club offering excellent facilities to visitors and our members. We run several Open competitions during the year in addition to members competitions covering all genders, ages and abilities.

We offer a full catering and bar service in the clubhouse and can accommodate visiting parties and private functions.

Our PGA Professional, Stephen Duncan together with his assistant Nikki Ferguson provide coaching, trolley hire and repair services and sell leading brand stock at competitive prices.

Please explore our website for further information on what we offer at the club. Alan and Lesley in the office will be delighted to provide more detail and explain our membership offers to you.

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.

Jim McCulloch
