Bathgate Castle sat on what's now the 10th hole of the Bathgate Golf Club's course. It was part of the dowry given to Walter Stewart when he married King Robert the Bruce's daughter Marjory in 1328. Because of this, the club, which opened in 1907, is required to seek permission before engaging in any excavating, though "Divots are allowed!", as the club proclaims on its Web site, as were the touch-ups proposed by James Braid in 1935. A round at the Bathgate Golf Club, where the scorecard admonishes golfers to "PLEASE AVOID SLOW PLAY AT ALL TIMES," kicks off big on Lang Whang, a 476-yarder that is one of four par-5 holes. The longest is Auld Reekie, the 12th hole, at 505 yards. The round closes at Hame, a par-4 that measures 405 yards. Catch up on games back home or games back at Hame in the Bathgate Golf Club's lounge, which offers satellite television, a view of the 18th, and billiards and dancing for those in the mood to do more than watch.

Solid Fairways

Apart from the odd blind tee shot, and the occasional need for local knowledge, the course is an entertaining, pleasant golf course. Pace of play was excellent, greens were pure, and the dry summer made the fairways excellent value. Enough interesting holes to make the course well worth a round.

Played here 3 times and I really cannot fault this course.,

This course is great value for money. I’ve only paid £15 for each round, on a 12pm hot deal. On one occasion the weather wasn’t too great but even with heavy rain, the course played really well. On the other train two occasions, the weather was perfect and the course really was a joy to play. Would recommend to anybody. Rookie Golfer.

Wide fairways but tough in wind

Great round of golf with some tricky holes and features. However fairways were generous. Busy course. Will play again.

Perfect weather

Tired looking course

Course looks tired. The fairways were in average condition following a rather dry spell. Slow greens, had recently been treated with something smelling sickly. Generally the course was a little run-down. My partner hired a trolley, thees were just left lying all over the place outside the shop, the handle adjuster was broken. Found several broken ball cleaners. Some bare patches on the fairways. Some interesting holes though. It is not a bad course, just seems a bit shabby in places, had the feel of a council course. There are better courses around.
