Drumpellier Golf Club started out in 1894 as a sporting club within Gartsherrie Church, in the east end of Glasgow. When problems arose with the lease on the original course, the club moved out to the Drumpellier Estate in nearby Coatbridge, where Willie Fernie designed a 9-hole layout for the members.

According to the book James Braid and his Four Hundred Golf Courses by John F. Moreton & Iain Cumming, “By 1912, eighteen holes were in play, the newer nine, eight of them, 7 to 14, being approached through a wood and being referred to as the western half.”

The book continues: “After World War I a few holes were realigned, some tees changed, a new green made… In 1923, Braid was there, specifically to bunker the newer nine… He was back in May 1936, to design the present 12th and 13th holes, carved out from woodland.”

The modern day course now measures just under 6,300 yards from the tips, playing to a par of 71. Feature holes include “Colonel Buchanan,” the right doglegged par four 3rd and “Quarry,” the heavily bunkered par three 5th. On the back nine, short par fours at holes 10 and 17 (“Campsie View” and “Kittle Kirk”) might, with a little care, yield a birdie or two.
