Glencorse Golf Club & Range
Voted one of Scotland's hidden gems by US Sports Illustrated, Glencorse was founded in 1890 and designed by Willie Park. Many famous golfers are associated with our club including George Macgregor the former Walker Cup Captain and Bernard Gallagher the former Ryder Cup Captain who are both members. With views of the Pentland Hills and the lush green surroundings, Glencorse provides a warm welcome to all. Glencorse is a friendly picturesque inland parkland course with many trees and the Glencorse Burn that affects 10 holes.  The 18 hole course of 5217 yards may have eight par three's (five for ladies) but it certainly cannot be described as an easy course. Only one par three is under 200 yards. Glencorse is a formidable test for the highest quality golfer, but still great fun for the more modest competitor. It is ideal for a day’s golf. (From Website)
