The current clubhouse is the third since 1923. The first was a wooden Spieresque structure which was extremely small but had to suffice until 1947 when a black 'tattie howkers bothy' was bought from a farm in Braco and erected where the car park is today. It was far from luxurious - no heating, no hot water, the toilets froze frequently and there was limited catering. The stewardess at the time refused to sell crisps as she could not get the greasy fingerprints off the glasses!
The present clubhouse dates from 1964 and has been constantly upgraded creating modern, first-class facilities which are the envy of many local clubs today. The ambience and friendly atmosphere at Dunblane are legendary. We have a very active social life, ranging from Scots Evenings, Jazz Afternoons, Rotary Am-Am fundraising events, and quizzes.
The Clubhouse has all the facilities you would expect, and some more.
As well as locker rooms for gents and ladies, it has a splendid bar, a lounge, a dance floor, television etc.
Upstairs is a large dining room/restaurant which can be split into two smaller areas if required.
A large kitchen supplies members and visitors with coffee and tea, snacks and meals (see Catering for details)
Function rooms are available to book for meetings conferences functions parties etc. (See Function Suite)
These can be co-ordinated with golf if necessary (see Corporate for details)
