After months of preparation with the General Manager 01.02.2020 the date had finally arrived, throwing a Surprise 60th Birthday party for my partner and Club Member Ronnie.
Brendan the General Manager was beyond helpful ensuring the day arrived without a hitch, the evening from start to end was superb, from the staff, the food to the venue, all100%.
The staff conducted themselves as always in a very polite professional and curious manner.
The food - a buffet was beautiful, well presented, and delicious
The Venue goes without saying, Stunning, inside and out 5*

Well done again Brendan and the team, keep up the great service you guys offer, looking forward to the next entertainment evening/event,

We have just visited Bothwell Castle Golf Club for a media day and we had a really good experience. The club has good access for people coming from both the east & west of the country and has excellent facilities for large numbers if required. Our event was relatively small but there are plenty of rooms which offer privacy whatever size of activity you are running. The Club could not have been more welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. There were always people on hand to help and the whole experience from making the initial contact to the event itself was effortless. We will definitely be back to make use of the venue again.

I've been coming to Scotland most of my life and I have been lucky enough to play at many of the top course's in this fine country but none to the level of warmth and class act the Bothwell Castle GC runs...

My words can not describe the class act this place runs, from management (Jim Callaghan) to Andrew (in the pro shop). They made my foursome feel like we belonged as members. There was no rush, no hassle, just pure enjoyment of a great but challenging round of golf.

I look forward to the day I get to return to Bothwell Castle Golf Club, maybe I'll break 90 this time. All the best Bothwell, you deserve it...... Thomas Conaghan

I played here today as part of a companies annuall golf day that has been running for 16 years.
We a party of 4 as part of a larger group were playing our round , when we were aporoached by 4 members playing behind us telling us we were holding up play , we then asked them to play through,as we were waiting on the fairway for them to play through , we were approached and were recomended to play our balls quickly even though they were also on the fairway, we did this out of respect for the clubs members, as we were geusts, this ended up with the 8 of us at the green, never experienced this in my 25 years of golfing, we felt harrased uncomfortable, and unwelcome if the club and members dont want inexperienced golfers on the course, and are not willling to make them welcome they should not accept and encourage corporate bookings, i thought this elitist attitude was gone , we have experienced a warm welcome over the 16 years of our golf day of ours,in all the clubs we have visited,hope the club does not rely upon on this type of revenue, other better clubs have fell foul because of this, and is not good for the reputation of golf.

We attended Bothwell Castle Golf Club to celebrate a birthday on Thursday 8th August. Having previously been a member of the club, I was very disappointed with the kitchen service. We ordered sandwiches and it took over 45 minutes for these to be delivered to the table. The Clubhouse was not that busy for lunch. The waiting staff were attentive but the overall service was very slow. When leaving we noticed that the kitchen staff were outside the back of the clubhouse smoking while in their chef's clothes, which does not create a great impression. While the food was edible, we would think twice about eating here again.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your experience at the Club was not what you expected. We were extremely busy that lunchtime although depending on where you were seated, it may not have appeared so as we have 6 rooms in which food is served. The area you referred to is a designated smoking area for staff members although the catering staff should not be wearing their whites whilst smoking. I will discuss this with our caterer.

Once it is sunnier this is the place to go for an outing. Good course and good food and drink. They must choose the staff on how they look because there are some good looking boys and girls behind the bar. The captain is a sexy old Welsh guy.

I was meeting for lunch in the well appointed clubhouse. We enjoyed beautiful views of a well manicured golf course, even in the middle of Winter.

The lounge was very relaxing and comfortable and welcoming to visitors like me. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious.

Highly recommended.

Bothwell is a fairly flat parkland course that is definitely worth playing (in the summer). The clubhouse is excellent with very good facilities and a huge balcony overlooking the 18th where you can sit and watch the golf while enjoying a coffee or food. The bar staff are pleasant and the staff in the pro shop helpful and friendly.
recent changes to the course make you think a bit more and while it is not the most difficult the greens (when fast) will test you.
Overall a very good experience

Bothwell Castle Golf Club is an excellent park land course. It is a fairly flat course which has plenty of challenges and is well maintained. Access is easy, just off the M74.
The club boasts a great clubhouse - good food, friendly staff and professional tuition from Alan.
Well worth a visit
