History of Linlithgow Golf Club
In 1913, the original course was laid out by Robert Simpson, the professional at Carnoustie, of which the first four holes still survive today. Since 1950 the club has had an association with the MacKinnon family of Drambuie fame. It was Gena MacKinnon who bought Braehead Farm to protect the interests of the club, and leased the land to the club in 1950 so that the club could be extended to 18 holes. Although not a golfer, Mrs MacKinnon enjoyed performing the opening ceremony of the club every year. The driver she used has pride of place in the clubhouse.
Our clubhouse is a welcome break from the rigours of the golf course. The locker room caters for all golfers needs with excellent changing and shower facilities to allow you to freshen up. We ask you to then relax in the Gena MacKinnon lounge before enjoying your meal in the recently decorated dining room.
The Clubhouse is available to members for use for private functions (no ‘late-teen’ functions allowed unfortunately).
During the playing season, mid-April to Mid-October, functions cannot commence until 7.30 pm in order to allow the golfers to enjoy their post-match refreshment in the lounge. Members cannot be excluded from the lounge but the majority will not be in attendance if a private function is being held.
Linlithgow Golf Club is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all children in its care whether they be Junior members, Club Golf participants or other. To this end the Club has a Child Protection Policy in place and has appointed a Child Protection Officer, Pat McEwan, who can be contacted via the Golf Club office on 01506 842585.
