Old Tom Morris designed the Killermont course at Glasgow Golf Club on the north side of the River Kelvin and the Lord Provost of Glasgow officially opened the undulating parkland layout in 1904. James Braid carried out some modifications to the layout in the mid-1920s whilst the father and son design team of Dave and Paul Thomas has reworked many of the green surrounds in recent years.

Killermont is actually the fifth site around the city where club members have played their golf down the years. The club originally started off at Glasgow Green in 1787 (Glasgow is the 10th oldest in the world) before moving to Queen’s Park (1870), Alexandra Park (1874) then Blackhill (1895) before finally settling in Killermont at the start of the 20th century.

The 398-yard 3rd is a tough hole to encounter so early in a round, playing uphill across the road that leads to the clubhouse, with a set of intimidating cross bunkers to be negotiated en route to the green. On the back nine, the 421-yard 12th is rated the most difficult on the inward half, largely due to a very demanding putting surface that offers no easy pin position on its upturned saucer-shaped green.

Jimmy Kidd, father of architect David McLay Kidd, was Killermont's Head Greenkeeper in the early part of his career before taking up the post of Director of Golf Courses at Gleneagles.
