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.

As Captain of Greenock Golf Club I am delighted to invite visitors to come and play our beautiful heathland courses on the West coast of Scotland.
On arrival you will find 27 holes of challenging but fair golf. Comprising of unique 18 and 9 hole “James Braid” layouts.
Our 18 hole course is famed for its diversity of holes that require close attention as you plot your way around.
Our 9 hole course opened in 1927 and skirts through Gorse and trees within the layout of the 18 hole course, a pleasant challenge for avid golfers.
Both golf courses are located in a commanding position overlooking the town with spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde and the Argyllshire Hills beyond.
The club is now in its 127th year and our aim is to provide members and visitors with a relaxed atmosphere, high standards of service, value for money and a warm welcome.”
