Kilmacolm

Kilmacolm Golf Club is found above the picturesque village of Kilmacolm in Renfrewshire in the West of Scotland The club was founded in 1891 and 9 holes were immediately built under the supervision of Willie Campbell. The golf course was extended to 18 holes not long after. Some changes has been made to the course over the years, including a consultation with famous golf architect James Braid which lead to the created of several new bunkers and mounds.

Kilmacolm is one of the more popular clubs on the outskirts of Glasgow. It is situated on a plateau approximately 400 feet above sea level, so when it’s windy you can expect to be blown about a fair bit.

The club is proud of its traditions as a village club and may well be called the ‘finest village golf club in the country.’ The club is certainly considered a joy to play over.

In the south the golf course looks across the Gryffe Valley to the Moors of Duchal and the Renfrewshire Uplands. Paisley and Glasgow can be seen in the east across Kilallan and Houston and on a clear day Tinto Hill in Lanarkshire may be spotted.

Kilmacolm Golf Club is easily accessible and is roughly 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. The city centre is only a half an hour’s drive from the club with a direct bus link available from Glasgow to the town of Kilmacolm.
