Our 6428 yard, par 70 layout is the oldest ‘inland’ course in the world and was laid out by Old Tom Morris, George Sayers and later refined by James Braid. The course is built on a substrate of glacial sands, providing classic moorland fairways which drain freely and are playable all year.

The layout is tough but fair. It is an ideal length and difficulty to challenge the best golfers, yet also hugely rewarding for the average player, not least because of the sheer pleasure of playing a great course in a glorious natural moorland setting surrounded by inspirational scenery.

Lanark Golf Club was established on the 4th of October 1851 making it the world’s oldest ‘inland’ course and the 25th oldest golf club in the world. At that time the course comprised only six holes, set out on the Common Moor, then owned by the Royal Burgh of Lanark. Unlike many of the early golf clubs the location of the course has never changed and golf has now been played on The Moor for over 170 years.
