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?

Par 5 – Yardage 470
Par 3 – Yardage 171
Par 4 – Yardage 358
Par 5 – Yardage 496
Par 4 – Yardage 402
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Par 4 – Yardage 432
Par 4 – Yardage 323
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.
Par 4 – Yardage 336
Dogleg right. Three wood or iron off the tee for position to leave a shortish iron to the green.
Par 4 – Yardage 353
Par 4 – Yardage 343
Avoid the bunker left and you should find this an easy par four offering a birdie chance.
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.
