Lanark Golf Club was founded in 1851 and is the 25th oldest golf club in the world making it a real gem not just in the Royal Burgh, but in Scotland.
While many of the early golf clubs have changed their location over the years Lanark has stood the test of time and the course remains largely unchanged to this day.
With stunning views and challenging holes, Lanark often draws paraellels with the King's Course at Gleneagles. In 1920 the LSM Railway Company decided, only on the casting vote of its chairman, to build its world famous hotel at Gleneagles rather than Lanark.
The club's 9 hole course plays a valuable role in developing the talents of young golfers before they progress to the 18 hole course and the club has developed several talented players over the years. The course record is 62 currently held jointly by professional Craig Maltman and amateur John Bauer of Lanark.
