The Milngavie Golf Club

Laighpark, Milngavie, United Kingdom
Golf Course & Country Club



Just 6 miles from Glasgow, yet seeming a world away, in a glorious moorland setting. Visitors, diners and new members all welcome. Come see for yourself. Superb golf in a stunning location.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and look forward to your visit. We are proud to present our fantastic course and are confident that the club can offer a truly memorable golfing experience to members and visitors alike.

Warm up at the practice ground, visit our short-course practice area or simply fine tune your putting stroke before heading towards the first tee.

We can offer four measured courses and tees to suit golfers of all ages and abilities. The wonderful Auchterlonie brothers designed course, which was later amended by the legendary James Braid. It is sure to bring you back to Milngavie time and time again.

And after your round, refreshments and food can be enjoyed in the comfort of the clubhouse or on the patio. Our staff are committed to providing members and visitors with an unrivalled golfing experience so why not treat yourself?
