Bathgate Castle sat on what's now the 10th hole of the Bathgate Golf Club's course. It was part of the dowry given to Walter Stewart when he married King Robert the Bruce's daughter Marjory in 1328. Because of this, the club, which opened in 1907, is required to seek permission before engaging in any excavating, though "Divots are allowed!", as the club proclaims on its Web site, as were the touch-ups proposed by James Braid in 1935.

A round at the Bathgate Golf Club, where the scorecard admonishes golfers to "PLEASE AVOID SLOW PLAY AT ALL TIMES," kicks off big on Lang Whang, a 476-yarder that is one of four par-5 holes. The longest is Auld Reekie, the 12th hole, at 505 yards. The round closes at Hame, a par-4 that measures 405 yards.

Catch up on games back home or games back at Hame in the Bathgate Golf Club's lounge, which offers satellite television, a view of the 18th, and billiards and dancing for those in the mood to do more than watch.
