What the club says: Bothwell is a mature parkland course with a long-standing reputation for excellent greens. Over the years the club has invested heavily in maintaining and improving the quality of the course to bring it to the high standards demanded by today's golfers.

Located around 10 miles from Glasgow city centre, this highly regarded golf course starts with a challenging par 5, while its signature hole is the par 3 eighth, where the front of the green is protected by a burn and a number of challenging bunkers, while the back borders closely on the out of bounds. The finishing hole directly in front of the clubhouse is a spectacular par 5. The sloping green is protected by well positioned bunkers and a meandering burn and two of its own swilken bridges.

Great course, a bit wet due to the bad winter but course in good condition despite this. A real challenge and every hole is different, would recommend everyone to play it.

Decent Course

Played this course on a work day out.

It was ok probably a good course to start taking up golf on.

A lot of the course was flat and with big fairways.So you could really get away with a lot.

Course was kept in a good state and the facilities were of a good standard as well.

The course was in tip top condition ... greens were running quick and true. ..I found the course to be very forgiving & very hard to loose a ball. ..the back nine for me was more interesting than the front & I wasn't sure how index one got its rating. ...we had a meal afterwards which was very nice. ..

Played the course yesterday and if I'm honest, I have played the course in much better condition... The greens were slow and bumpy, members/visitors not looking after it by replacing divots or pitch marks.

Good course with excellent greens. Wide fairways that are forgiving to wild tee shots!. Members and staff were very friendly. And as it was 30 years since I last played here it was unrecognisable with the new clubhouse!

Played the course over the past few years and have been really disappointed in it this year. The fairways were soaking and you couldnt get any relief from wet soaping arears and the rough has beeb heavy and uncut with bald patches that are unplayable out of it. They have changed some of the hplea and the layout but they have turned their eye away from the normal day to day tasks and have a poor pffer of conditions at present. I hope they sort it out shortly its a shame
