Glasgow Golf Club

Glasgow Golf Club

Complex engineering work by multi-award-winning engineering consultancy Will Rudd Davidson has been completed on the fire-damaged clubhouse belonging to Glasgow Golf Club.

The club, the ninth oldest in the world, called on the restoration expertise of Will Rudd Davidson to help realise their vision after a blaze in 2018 devastated large sections of the three-storey building in Killermont Avenue, Bearsden.

To support the club’s restoration aspirations, the Glasgow team undertook extensive structural surveys of the remaining structure to salvage as much of the remaining listed building structure as possible. These surveys shaped the overall restoration of the existing building, which included retention of all existing external stonework elevations, steel window lintels and internal load bearing masonry.

Will Rudd took on the additional challenge of dovetailing a new structure into an existing building and blending historic and modern materials together. Accessibility enhancements were also made to the existing building with the installation of passenger and catering lifts.

The completed clubhouse now includes a large, modern extension at the rear of the property, with a newly installed freestanding steel terrace where members can enjoy unrivalled views over the first tee. Glasgow Golf
