Alexandra Park Glasgow G31

With the closure of Golf Course, the venue held Race 2 in both the 2021 and 2023 GPC.

The park was used for training in the formative years of STAG. Although small by day, by including the golf course it becomes a fine venue for night events.

Plans for new permanent course coming along and hoping to be available from May 2024.
