THE COURSE

HAGGS CASTLE — GLASGOW’S FINEST GOLF COURSE

Haggs Castle is one of the finest inland layouts in the west of Scotland.

Set in the magnificent mature parkland of Pollok Country Park, the tree-lined fairways of our course provide a wonderful contrast to the nearby, bustling city-centre.

At 6,426 yards from the white tees, and 5,987 yards off the yellow tees, the course is playable for all and a challenge for the best. To score well you’ll have to plot your way around, stay on the short grass and keep out of the trees.

Why not arrive a few minutes early and give yourself time to warm up with a few shots on our practice area and practice putting green?

HOLE 1

HOLE 1

MOSS FARM

Par 5 – Yardage 470

A generous par 5. Avoid the bunker complexes on the fairway, 60 yards short and around the green. A five gets you off to a nice start.

THE DELL

Par 3 – Yardage 171

Play as you see it. Not as short as it looks! Correct club selection is vital.

HOLE 3

CORKERHILL VILLAGE

Par 4 – Yardage 358

Dense trees all the way up the right so keep left of centre while avoiding bunkers. Approach shot plays longer than the yardage.

HOLE 4

HOLE 4

FARMERS WYND

Par 5 – Yardage 496

Big hitters can cut the corner and go for it in two. A well-placed drive down the left is required for this. Otherwise, stick to the centre and plot a three-shot course around the ‘sentry’ tree.

HOLE 5

HAGGS VIEW

Par 4 – Yardage 402

With a water hazard all the way down the right it is safer to keep to the left half. Do this, avoid the bunker and the green is opened up.

HOLE 6

HOLE 6

CART WATER

Par 4 – Yardage 321

Accuracy off the tee is essential. The shot must be centre/right to open up the green. Beware of the ditch on the right and big hitters watch the run out to the burn.

HOLE 7

HOLE 7

LONG SHORT

Par 3 – Yardage 188

A long par 3. Take plenty of club even with the pin at the front. Shots leaked right are liable to find the bunker or the burn if not long enough. Green is two tiered but will gather any ball coming in front left.

HOLE 8

HOLE 8

THE COPSE

Par 4 – Yardage 320

Dogleg left. Tee shot to right half opens up this wide green. Aim on the bunker but club down to lay up. Aim left of bunker if you want to hit longer.

HOLE 9

HOLE 9

ROON THE BEND

Par 4 – Yardage 406

An altogether tougher prospect – position is critical. Aim drive at the tree in the fairway to leave mid/long iron to the green. Avoid letting approach go left as this leads to bunkers down a steep slope.

HOLE 10

HOLE 10

O’ER THE BROW

Par 4 – Yardage 451

Ideal shape for a faded tee shot to use the slope. A well-bunkered green makes the 2nd shot demanding. Watch out for the ditch, which appears short right and left.

HOLE 11

HOLE 11

PLATEAU

Par 3 – Yardage 158

Choose plenty of club to carry front bunker and upslope at the front. Important to hit this elevated green and hold it or you will face a difficult chip.

HOLE 12

HOLE 12

STERN TEST

Par 4 – Yardage 432

Drive to the right half to use the slope of the fairway. The green runs right to left.

HOLE 13

HOLE 13

LOCHINCH

Par 4 – Yardage 323

Beware of the Cart River to the right – out of bounds beyond this! Iron off the tee is a good idea to finish short of the bunker complex even if it leaves a longish second shot.

FLYOVER

HOLE 14

HOLE 14

THE AVENUE

Par 4 – Yardage 426

Excellent par four. Tee shot must be down the middle to leave a tricky long shot through a funnel of trees to a well-bunkered two-tier green.

FLYOVER

HOLE 15

HOLE 15

THE GAP

Par 4 – Yardage 336

Dogleg right. Three wood or iron off the tee for position to leave a shortish iron to the green.

FLYOVER

HOLE 16

HOLE 16

PADDOCK

Par 4 – Yardage 353

Keep the drive between the bunker on the left and the tree on the right. The second shot is tricky to this sloping green with out-of-bounds on the right. If you need to be defensive play short to the front right and opt for a long putt or an up and down.

HOLE 17

HOLE 17

MOSSPARK

Par 4 – Yardage 343

Avoid the bunker left and you should find this an easy par four offering a birdie chance.

HOLE 18

HOLE 18

DUMBRECK

Par 5 – Yardage 472

Keep the drive to the right, avoid the fairway bunker and with a draw and you may be able to reach in two. Take plenty of club as the approach is deceptively foreshortened by cross bunkers.
