Leadhills Golf Club Future Plans

Leadhills Golf Club have secured £97,536.56 of funding for the renewal of all equipment needed to keep Scotland’s highest golf course in perfect condition.

Both The Renewable Energy Fund and Clyde Wind Farm have match funded the total needed.

Leadhills Golf Course is a 9-hole course, situated in the picturesque Lowther Hills. It has been run by a group of volunteers under a constitution since 1935. The Club is a non-profit making organisation and relies on members and visitors’ fees to keep the facility maintained and the grass to a high playing standard. The Club is active in village life, supporting the school for activity days, encouraging young people to enjoy the sports on offer, and providing visitors to the village to support other local businesses.

The Club has also developed a footgolf course to run alongside the main golf course, as well as opening to the skiers in the winter months.

The Club now needs a large cash injection to sustain the facility for future use. The Club has successfully secured funding for the first phase of the project but will also be looking for funding to replace the club house and develop a new storage facility.

Once this has all been completed, it is hoped it will attract more members and visitors to the area and further support other local businesses in the village.
