SCROLL FOR MORE
A winning blend of natural countryside beauty, artistically shaped fairways and excellent rolling greens, Carnwath is regarded among the very best kept golf courses in Lanarkshire. Our Member's often find their handicap holds up well on away courses, whilst new members often find their handicap will increase slightly due to a combination of course difficulty from our Medal Tees and a CSS which is often one under the course Par of 70. The inspiration of former Club Champion G.M Clark, Carnwath offers challenges for all levels of player.
HOLE BY HOLE
Check out our 'Hole by Hole' guide of the course below.
2nd Hole - S.I. 7 'The Yett'
As you breath a sigh of relief walking off the 1st, you are met with an even sterner challenge at 'The Yett'.
The second of our 4 Par 3's, the 234 yard hole is protected by long shallow bunkers on the left and a deep, dreaded bunker to the right of the green. Combined with run off's at the back, it's a difficult green to hit.
It is however, a beautiful looking hole. With a deceptive SI of 7, the 2nd has a scoring average of 4.36 from our Medal Tees, placing importance on a good warm up!
18th Hole - S.I 12 'Moss Burn'
The 18th hole is a magnificent 500 yard par 5 which often plays into or against a crosswind.
A tee shot avoiding the trees to the right will land in an undulating fairway that often produces a 'draw lie' for right handers, meaning 'The Burn' which sits tight to the left hand side of the fairway is always lurking.
Players finish their round at Carnwath with the Clubhouse, and more importantly those inside it, watching on intently.
1st Hole - S.I. 9 'Roundel'
The first at Carnwath is a daunting uphill 193 yard Par 3 from our Medal Tees, but is still a challenging hole from further forward.
'The Roundel' looks out onto the hole's namesake at the back of the first green, surrounded by bunkers. Infamously, 'The burn' runs along the tee front and the comes into play a great deal more than it should.
First tee nerves are common as our Clubhouse watches on, but this rewarding hole does give up the rare 'Magic 2' that can set the tone for a great day.
DIGITAL YARDAGE GUIDE

This is a great resource for Visitors as it provides a comprehensive overhead view of each hole, including out of bounds, ditches and other hazards on the Course.
The Digital Yardage Guide is an equally useful for Member's who want to know distances to the centre of the green from key features on each hole.
