Glasgow Golf Club Project Makes Considerable Progress

The Restoration of Glasgow Golf Club’s Killermont House Clubhouse is progressing well, with two significant milestones achieved in the last month:

☑️Planning permission approved                                ☑️Listed building consent granted

In 2018 the prestigious Glasgow Golf Club suffered a catastrophic fire in its Killermont House clubhouse, but rather than dwell on the devastating damage to its b-listed building, the club is looking to the future and has commissioned the clubhouse’s restoration and enhancement.

As the 9th oldest golf course in the world, Glasgow Golf Club has a proud history of tradition and prestige. Since moving into Killermont House back in 1904, there have been many sporting, societal and economic changes, and the Golf Club has been evaluating all aspects of its operations to ensure the building is reconstructed in a manner that will meet the current and future needs of the club.

The design of its new clubhouse retains the classic design elements of the original building, whilst incorporating some more modern features. Architects Wellwood Leslie commented “The proposed design creates a new central approach and entrance to the building from the north side. The new entrance reflects the classical formal entrance to the building to the south side but in a contrasting, contemporary manner.”

Doig+Smith is delighted to play a significant role in this project, having been appointed to provide its services in Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer.
