Central Scotland

The Central district encompasses the Golfing Unions of Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire, with a total membership of 23 clubs. The latter Union is somewhat dwarfed by its neighbour (which is not surprising as it has only six clubs in its jurisdiction) but then it is the smallest county in Scotland per head of population with only around 50,000 inhabitants.

The Schawpark course at Alloa has twice been used as the venue for the Scottish Area Team Championships with Stirlingshire winning in 1981 and Lothians coming out on top in 2003. The Scottish Club Championships have been held a couple of times at Tulliallan in recent years with the host club lifting the prestigious national trophy in 2002.

The seventeen clubs in the Sirlingshire area are spread out between the 18-hole Buchanan Castle course in the west and the 9-hole Polmont layout in the east, offering a fine mix of parkland and moorland golf.
