Hayston Golf Club was founded in 1926 amid raging controversy that split the town of Kirkintilloch and its community. It all came about because of 'the demon drink' In 1921, after a poll of the 12,000 population, it was decreed that all the pubs in Kirkintilloch be closed and that the town should become 'dry'.

The site is a mere 72 acres, but Braid showed what imagination could do with a limited canvas - it appears much more expansive. The ground slopes and tilts this way and that which lends itself nicely to elevated greens, deflecting hummocks and gathering bunkers.

The terrain contradicts the yardage and makes club selection a critical part of playing the course. Although the greens are mainly on the small side, they are very deceptive. Looking generally flat, they can be slippery in summer when they are fanned by the prevailing westerly wind. The card reads 6042 yards, par 70, although for most is appears somewhat longer.
