Blantyre Golf Course

Blantyre Golf Club was a short lived golf club of the 1910’s, a casualty itself of World War One. It was laid out on the northern fields and grassparks at Springwell, well before the current homes.

Opening in 1913, it was laid out on fields belonging to several women, next to the Auchinraith Pit Bing. The course had nine holes and a small clubhouse. Boundaries on the other three sides by the railways.

Putting this in context, you can see the long sweeping curved boundary on the 1910 map, which was actually the railway, the Auchinraith branch.

Blantyre Golf Course lasted just over 5 years going into liquidation in 1918.
