The Renfrewshire Golf Union provides administration for over 10,000 golfers affiliated to 23 clubs in the area and it covers an area that stretches from Gourock in the north west to Bonnyton in the south east.
Top tracks in the county include the wonderful moorland trio of East Renfrewshire, Kilmacolm and Ranfurly Castle. Alternative top quality parkland venues include three along the banks of the River Clyde at Renfrew, Erskine and the new Earl of Mar course at Mar Hall.
Renfrewshire has tasted success in the Scottish Area Team Championships, supplying winning teams at Cardross in 1982, Machrihanish in 1996, Bathgate in 2005 and Crail in 2009. The county takes the development of young golfers very seriously, inviting children as young as nine to special coaching sessions at the Mearns Castle facility.
