At your service at East Kilbride Golf Club

Our clubhouse was re-built, following a fire on 12 January 2010 and opened for business in August 2011.

A warm welcome awaits you from Laura Carruth – the Clubhouse Manager – and her staff, together with Brian Graham – Au-Gratin @ East Kilbride Golf Club – who is the Head of Catering.

Laura joined the Club after years of experience in the licensed trade and hospitality business in the East Kilbride area.

Brian and his staff provide high quality catering services through daily menus and speciality nights, which have proved to be extremely popular with all who frequent the Club.


Jack McLean Putter

One of East Kilbride Golf Club’s most cherished heirlooms is back on display at the Nerston Club – thanks to a much appreciated gesture by Hamish Grey, Chief Executive of the Scottish Golf Union.

When fire destroyed the old clubhouse in January 2010, all the Club’s trophies perished in the blaze – most notably the putter used by Jack McLean, a leading pre-war amateur golfer and one of the Club’s most respected past members.

The Jack McLean Putter, used to such good effect in the 1930s, took pride of place in the trophy cabinet in the old clubhouse and EKGC members competed annually to win the competition named after it.

When Hamish Grey attended the opening ceremony of the new clubhouse in 2011, he heard, then EKGC captain, Tom Keir, while welcoming the brand new facilities, express his regret that heirlooms like the putter could never be replaced.

Quietly, Hamish set about proving Tom wrong. Using old photos of Jack McLean and with the help of some of the club makers based close to the SGU HQ in St.Andrews, he commissioned a project to find and remake the exact putter.

A delighted Tom Keir took possession of the end result of such painstaking work – an exact replica of the 1930s putter.

It now has pride of place amongst the Club Trophies and Tom expressed the Club's delight.

“On behalf of all East Kilbride members, I would like to thank Hamish and the SGU for this magnificent gesture,” said Tom. “We are very proud of our history and this link to one of the Club’s greatest-ever players is a vital part of who we are.“

Hamish Grey is pleased to have played a part in restoring this important East Kilbride link.

“We must never forget our golfing heritage,” said Hamish. “The SGU recognises the unique place the putter has in EKGC history and I’m delighted that we managed to help replace it”
