Cawder is probably has two of the finest golf course in the region, the courses work their way over gently undulating parkland just to the North East of the city. The Keir course is the shorter of the two and it unlike its 6,300 yard sister (the Cawder course) it has no par fives.

The Cawder was another James Braid design but has undergone various workings in the late sixties when part of the course was lost to mine workings.

The last iteration was created in 1981 and since then the course has once again settled in to it glorious parkland surroundings.

Cawder has its very own touch of Augusta ( in name) thanks to its “Cawders Amen Corner”, holes 13-16 are a terrific 4 hole sequence with water strategically in play on the 454 yard14th (Kelvin) and the 390 yard 15th hole ( The Gardens), these two great holes on the run in to the club house can easily ruin your card.
