The Greenock Golf Club was founded in 1890 and is located in a commanding position high above the town. In 1924 that busiest of all Golf Course Architects, former open champion James Braid was invited to advise on reconstruction.
Leased farmlands were duly purchased and an eighteen and a nine hole course were built, being completed in 1927. The course is moorland with trees defining many of the fairways and it is to no exaggeration to say the views over the Clyde Estuary to the Argyll hills beyond are simply spectacular.
The club has played host to several professional and amateur county championships over the years, while some of the worthy exponents of the game have graced its fairways ; JH Taylor, Harry Vardon, Roberto de Vicenzo and Sam Torrance have all exhibited their skills to the members.
Set in the heart of Renfrewshire, Greenock golf club is only 25 minutes from Glasgow International Airport and is easily accessible from all regions.
We have two James Braid designed parkland courses, an 18 hole course and a 9 hole course and offer golfers of all abilities a fair test of golf whilst you enjoy the panoramic views of the World famous River Clyde and the gateway to the Highlands with Ben Lomond & The Trossachs within easy reach.

of Greenock Golf Club it gives me great pleasure to
invite visitors to our hidden jewel in the West of Scotland. We are very proud of our challenging 9 and 18 hole courses which were founded in 1890 and later designed and established by
James Braid in 1924.
Each course is carefully maintained and deeply satisfying in its own special way. The elevated site of the clubhouse provides spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde and the Argyllshire Hills beyond. Check out our gallery for a flavour of the beautiful scenery available.
Our aim is to provide members and visitors with a relaxed atmosphere, high standards of service, real value for money and a warm welcome.
