The Golf Club

The East Renfrewshire Golf Club, founded in 1922, is rich in history and yet offers high standards of contemporary Clubhouse facilities and services in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Easily Accessible Tranquility

Located in the leafy suburb of Newton Mearns, to the South West of Glasgow, a straightforward journey just fifteen minutes from the city centre and 20 minutes from 2 airports leads to Junction 5 of the M77. The East Renfrewshire Golf Club is easily accessed and conveniently located for members and visitors. Appreciate the serene and quiet setting throughout the course and take in the expansive views.


A must play Course if you are in the area

Tee Availability

We are a members’ club that takes pride in keeping the numbers of members and visitors at levels which ensure that golfers can almost always just turn up without a tee booking and play. We only use pre-booking of tee times for members’ competitions and for visitors. For visitors we have available an online tee booking facility.

An Integrated Club

The Ladies and Gentlemen’s sections are fully integrated, with all members treated equally in all respects (membership fees, use of all facilities, etc.), and we have a longstanding tradition of Mixed Competitions. The East Renfrewshire Golf Club also boasts a thriving juniors section.

Quality and Reputation of the Course

The course designed by James Braid is one of the best examples of his work in the UK and Ireland. It is today recognised as one of the finest moorland courses in Scotland and the top ranked golf course in the Glasgow and surrounding area. With its rolling fairways, loch and burns, and spectacular views over Glasgow and beyond, the course is stunning and a fair test for golfers of all abilities.

Friendly Membership

New members comment on the warm welcome they receive and there are a number of regular games available which ensure that a newcomer can turn up and get a game with other members. Regular social occasions also assist new members getting to know other members.

The Clubhouse

During the summer months a popular post-round location is the patio. With magnificent views of the 1st and 18th Holes this is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink or bar snack whilst reflecting the experience of your round.

There is a large lounge and dining room adjoining the main bar, and a choice of 3 flat-screen TV’s and a pool table, where members and visitors can enjoy a quiet chat with a wide choice of refreshments, light snacks and main meals.

For special meetings, we can make available a private function room, which doubles as the Dining Room.

The Clubhouse boasts excellent facilities and provides full independent wheelchair access, for our disabled visitors to the Clubhouse, bar and function room.
