What the club says: Carnwath Golf Club was founded in 1907 on a piece of land called Gallow Hill, situated to the west of the village of Carnwath. The 9 hole course was laid out by Mr W, Auchterlonie of St Andrew's and opened by Lady Lockhart, the wife of Sir Simon M Lockhart, Honorary President of the club and laird of the estates, on 29th June 1907.

The course was extended to 18 holes in May 1922 and by 1936 was visited by more than 3000 golfers annually. With the acquisition of a further 20 acres south of the course, it's layout was again redesigned by G M Clark, club champion, and the new layout opened in July 1963.

Fantastic course condition. Great to play

Course in great condition with quick greens .Par 3s are a real challenge. Good split of long par 4s and shorter 4s to try and grab a few birdies.

Medal

cloudy overcast day. Greens medium pace some slightly faster than others. A little rain the day before had taken the dry look off the course.

Not for me thanks

The course has an unusual lay out which was to my taste. It is very hilly with a lot of blind holes which again is not my ideal course. There were some nice holes but too many crossed over each other which meant it was s slow round.

Superb Conditions - Also year round!

Carnwath's greens are the best you will get for the money - truly brilliant from June - September.

The course is well shaped, testing and very welcoming. Its also possible to play in the winter on full greens!

Great wee course with excellent greens. A little bit on the short side and fairly open but contains some stunning holes in there as well. Some corners of the golfcourse reminded me of Gleneagles. Pro was very welcoming and gave out some valuable advice on how to play the course.

Carnwath has some of the best greens in Lanarkshire. A challenging start with Two
Par 3s to open with 193 and 234 yards !!! Some shorter par 4s but with smallish Greens
Accurate play is essential. A wee gem and a must play . Staff and members make you
Feel very welcome . And a well stocked Pro shop as everything you could need . 10/10

a thoroughly enjoyable course set in lanarkshire - i think i'd call it a hidden gem - a number of shorter holes but a few hills and the challenge of the railway line can make things interesting. The scenery and general setting of the course is very pleasant - would definitely go back.
