Map of Tollcross Park MapTerrain description

Permanent course maps withdrawn from sale at Glasgow Life Centres to allow major changes in map to be added.
Relaunch date to be advised.

Tollcross Park was the first Glasgow Park mapped by STAG back in 1982 and played a vital part in the early development of the Club.

Previous attempts to establish a permanent course in 1986 and 1988 were unsuccessful but with the regeneration of the Park underway we are confident the 16 control course will be well used throughout the year.

Course checked February 2008. Posts 4 & 16 painted tops evaporated due to damp location.
April 2011, posts 2 & 3 destroyed by contractors.

Park History:
