Welcome to Rothesay Golf Club
Enjoy a day playing on one of Scotland's most scenic golf courses in a picturesque setting with panoramic views covering the seven Counties surrounding the Firth of Clyde.

Founded in 1892, Rothesay Golf Club was moved, extended and relaid out by James Braid in 1908, with a first tee only ¾ of a mile from Rothesay pier. Over the course of the 20th century most famous golfers played and enthused about the course. The course circles around Canada Hill which at about 400ft gives spectacular views of the Firth of Clude, the Cowal Hills, Lochs Ridden and Striven, the Mull of Kintyre, the isle of Arran and the Ayrshire Hills. The great Walter Hagen played the course and said that the views could not be beaten anywhere in the world.

Only 5419 yards in length, the 18 holes present a very tough challenge to scratch golfers and beginner alike. Ryder Cup stalwart Eric Brown thought the 4th hole one of the most difficult Par 3's in Europe.
