Established in 1905, Broomieknowe Golf Club is set in magnificent parkland where the fast-draining sub-soil helps to ensure that there are very few days when the course is not open. In addition to the course, which offers a challenge to golfers whatever their handicap, The club has a friendly clubhouse with changing rooms, a well-stocked bar and excellent catering facilities.
When the A7 bypass was constructed in 1992, architect Fred Hawtree was tasked with remodeling the layout and he retained most of the Braid holes and five of his greens. He also created five new holes (from the 5th to the 9th) and re-sequenced the course to accommodate the new changes. Extensive drainage work was carried out at the start of the new millennium, allowing Broomieknowe Golf Club to remain open when other courses in the area are waterlogged.
Today, the course extends to 6,172 yards from the back tees, with only one par five (at the 8th) and three par threes (at holes 5, 11 and 15) on the scorecard. Holes 6 and 7 (“Marys Dyke” and “Cockpen”) form a formidable pair of par fours on the front nine but the degree of difficulty here is more than matched by the trio of two-shotters on the inward half at holes 12 to 14, which attract stroke index values of 1, 5 and 3.
