The Rutherglen Golf Club offers an 18 hole sandscrape golf course adjacent to the town centre. The course is a testing one of 5279 metres for men and 5020 metres for ladies with a par of 69 for men and 71 for ladies.
It is an undulating course but there are no steep climbs. While it is close to the town centre it has lovely country views. Visitors are welcome at Rutherglen and there is no requirement to book.
With the benefits of recycled water the course is well maintained and remains open throughout the year.
