Welcome to The East Renfrewshire Golf Club.

Located on the southside of Glasgow, just fifteen minutes from the city centre at Junction 5 of the M77, we are conveniently located both for members and visitors.

The course was designed by James Braid and 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. 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.

We played East Renfrewshire last week - whilst course was rather wet, this didn't detract from our enjoyment of what is one of the most stunning scenic golf courses in the UK - a hidden gem in this respect. The course is not particularly long but is eminently playable & a fun challenge for golfers of all abilities. Definitely worth... More

I visited on 6th August with 2 others. At £30 per head, this was very poor value for money. Despite just a fine drizzle, the fairways were sodden and there were puddles on almost every green. It has not been that wet recently. I am a bit disappointed that such a hefty green fee was charged knowing the conditions were... More

Playing golf and visiting Glasgow? Don't miss a wonderful course set in the most beautiful of surroundings. It is superbly kept and offers fabulous scenery. It is also quite challenging.

We visited the course with a group of 12 for a corporate event. The staff could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The course itself is challenging and enjoyable. The greens are some of the best we have played in this year. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Whilst visiting Newton Mearns for my cousins 40th birthday party, my (future) son-in-law and I decided to play golf here. One of the reasons we chose this course was because of the half price concession we received under the 'Braid scheme', but also because of the excellent reviews I'd read on various websites. After playing East Renfrewshire, we travelled to... More

Played this course for the first time in the East Renfrewshire Seniors Open. Found the course very enjoyable with a variety of interesting holes. Course was in excellent condition despite the poor weather in the previous week. Overall a very good day out with special thanks to the Seniors Open official for the late entry.

I played the course on 10th June and was impressed by the standard of the whole course. A credit to the greenkeeping staff. The clubhouse is welcoming and the politeness of the staff made you feel very welcome. The food was also very good. I would definitely return to this course as it is a joy to play.

Played here yesterday with perfect golf conditions. Course is in fine condition with greens a bit slow but you could see that if there was a medal tomorrow they could have them perfect. Real test of golf with undulations and side hill lies. Food great and service superb. I would thoroughly recommend playing here. You will definitely enjoy.

Rightly compared to the legendary Scottisg course East Ren is also a fantastic James Braid designed course. The views across Glasgow are stunning and the friendly reception you will receive exemplary. As a member of this club I am more than happy to commend our club to visitors.

Hello, Many thanks. Yes the views are particularly stunning around our course and many members and guests have commented on the fact that they cannot believe they are so close to the city centre yet have these great views to look at when playing their round. We hope you continue to enjoy them for many years to come. More
