Test your game at Glencorse Golf Club in Penicuik, Scotland
05 July 2021
With views of the Pentland Hills and the lush green surroundings, Glencorse provides a warm welcome to all golfers.
Glencorse Golf Club, voted one of Scotland's hidden gems by US magazine Sports Illustrated, was founded in 1890 and designed by Willie Park.
Many famous golfers are associated with Glencorse including George Macgregor, the former Walker Cup Captain and ex-Ryder Cup Captain, Bernard Gallagher, who are both members. Glencorse is a very picturesque 18 hole parkland course of 5217 yards course with a winding burn coming into play on ten of the holes.
Although it has eight par threes it certainly cannot be described as an easy course. Only one par three is under 200 yards and the signature 237 yard 5th is one of the most spectacular and difficult par 3's in Scotland.
Glencorse is a formidable test for the highest quality golfer, but still great fun for the more modest competitor. It is simply ideal for a day's golf.
