With the first glimmers of spring on the horizon (trust us, it’s coming), a golfer’s grip begins to get twitchy. Tell-tale signs are those imaginary drives soaring over the sofa and the match-winning putts lined up on the hall carpet.
The fairways are calling and today’s Big Deal is the opportunity to secure a year’s challenging and rewarding golf on a championship course, with plenty of additional membership benefits.
Courtesy of the Golf Club, online specialists in affordable golf memberships, this Big Deal offers a year’s golf membership, with a choice of five or ten rounds, at Deer Park Golf and Country Club, handily situated within easy access of Glasgow or Edinburgh.

The Big Deal invites golfers to pit their skills against a challenging and interesting par-72 championship course. Membership offers the opportunity for novices to hone their game through repetition, and for more experienced players to test their skills on a variety of holes.
For golfers who have been used to the restrictions of pay-and-play or municipal courses, this is also a chance to be part of a golfing community with membership status and free practice facilities.
The 6,772 yard Deer Park course features an attractive tree-lined front nine with water hazards and well-positioned bunkers. The back nine is a little more undulating, offering a range of challenges. It’s a particularly scenic course with some stunning views, and Edinburgh Castle looming on the horizon on clear days.
Your membership gives you access to the members’ log-in area on the Golf Club site which allows you to keep track of your bookings and follow the improvement in your game over the course of the year.
The Deer Park Golf and Country Club has plenty to offer away from the greens and fairways. The Big Deal also offers one access to facilities that include an ultra-modern leisure complex featuring a pool and thermal spa overlooking the course, with saunas and steam rooms. It’s the perfect place to sooth the muscles after a testing 18 holes.
The club also offers a gym, squash courts, beauty salon and, for a little additional post-golf competition, a tenpin bowling facility.
The Deer Park Golf and Country Club has plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor, including this golfer’s recommendation:
‘The Championship golf course at Deer Park is a beauty. I played it on a quiet Monday in September and the pro was friendly and helpful, the course was a tough test at over 6000 yards on mainly flat parkland and the fairways and greens were immaculate.’
Today’s Big Deal of a golf membership with The Golf Club at Deer Park Golf and Country Club would make a perfect gift for a golf-lover or for a beginner looking to improve their game.
With the additional leisure facilities on offer, it’s also the ideal chance to keep fit and relaxed over the course of a year’s membership.
