Scroll courses A-Z


It may surprise some to learn that Lanark Golf Club is the 25th oldest golf club in the world! The moorland golf course dates to 1851 and is located in the Upper Clyde Valley around Lanark Loch offering spectacular views of the South Upland Hills.

In 1851 the course consisted of just 6 holes. In 1853, it was shortened to 5 holes. By 1857, the holes numbered 10. In 1869, the club added 3 holes bringing the number to 13. An additional hole was found in 1885.

The course was finally updated to 18 holes in 1897 by George Sayers who chose the green sites with the routing by Old Tom Morris. In 1909, Ben Sayers returned and altered two holes, the 7th and 8th. In 1927, James Braid added the 10th, 11th, 13th and 14th holes. The only original holes from 1851 still in play at the Lanark Golf Club are the 1st and 18th.
