Situated a mere 10-minute drive from the bustling heart of Glasgow, Cawder offers a serene escape from the urban rush, inviting members to immerse themselves in the elegance of the beautiful game amidst picturesque surroundings.
Renowned for its natural beauty, the course is cradled by the Campsie hills and enveloped by enchanting woodlands. The Antonine Wall and Kelvin river gracefully wind through the courses, granting golfers access to some of the most breathtaking vistas that any Scottish golf course has to offer. It's a slice of golfing paradise that beckons not just local members, but visitors from all corners to come and partake in its splendour.
