The 9-hole Leadhills Golf Course is set in the heart of the picturesque village of Leadhills just up the road adjacent to the Hopetoun Arms Hotel.
With forty three members made up of Junior, Adult, Senior, Country, Family and Friends of the Club, the active membership pride themselves on the warm welcome they extend to day visitors who flock to the course each year. Work to improve the facilities continues and it is hoped that the course will become re-affiliated with SGU before the year end.
The club is a real asset to the community. One example is the coaching it provides to students of the local schools as well as providing free membership to seven pupils who attended a recent coaching session delivered by a qualified PGA coach.
As with most community clubs, collaboration with other groups is key to its sustainability. For example, the Golf Club works closely with the Ski Club and when the snow arrives, the fairways becomes nursery slopes.
The support the Golf Club gets from the village and various community groups is vitally important to the future of the Club and particular thanks go to Leadhills Estate, the Toddlers group for fundraising and the Railway Club members who help with maintenance of equipment.
