Falkirk Golf Club

Established in 1922, Falkirk Golf Club (known locally as Carmuirs) invited James Braid to survey the club’s 18-hole layout just five years after its inauguration. According to the book James Braid and his Four Hundred Golf Courses by John F. Moreton & Iain Cumming, Braid “was not radical, suggesting alterations to some tees and greens, but providing a full bunkering scheme. All his recommendations were implemented”.

The authors continue: “Since then, two new holes, 3rd and 9th, arrived in 1951, a new 10th in 1957, the 11th and 14th in 1965, and the 6th, 7th and 8th in 1981, all replacing holes Braid would have seen, the land remaining the same”. The last three
holes were all probably brought into play due to the acquisition of land close to the railway line on the west side of the property so it’s now quite a different course from the one that was in play back in the 1920s.
Nowadays, the layout measures a healthy 6,230 yards from the back markers on a 116-acre undulating site, with testing opening and closing par fives. “The Spire,” the 493-yard 1st and “Hame,” the 500-yard 18th are both tight, tree-lined holes that demand full concentration right at the start and the very end of the round - woe betide golfers who’re not fully focused as there’s the potential for a scoring disaster on either hole.

*The par threes on the course are all good one-shot holes but the 205-yard 13th (“Shelter Hall”) is by far the most difficult. Played semi-blind uphill into the prevailing wind, with out of bounds on the left, trees on the right and a protective bunker fronting the right hand side of the green, it’s a beast of a hole!

Since the introduction of the iconic Falkirk Wheel in 2002, the 367-yard 10th, “Canal Wheel,” has become the signature hole at Carmuirs. Golfers tee off across a gully towards the huge rotating boat lift that connects the Forth & Clyde Canal with the Union Canal a mile away and this dramatic landmark forms a terrific backdrop to the hole.**

"I really like the set up at Carmuirs. The main course is terrific and the practice facilities are pretty good too (and the chilli cheese burger and ice cold Guinness at lunchtime also went down a treat!). I recommend you give this place a try".

"Having discovered this hidden gem several years ago I try to make a point of returning every year to enjoy its varied and challenging layout. The last two holes are extremely demanding and as you make your way off the course you will already be promising yourself another visit".
