Play GolfThe game of golf is one of Scotland’s most visible icons, played in nearly every community in the country, from the Shetland Islands in the North to Southerness in the South; from Machrie in the West to Crail in the East.
Golf can be played by everyone – men and women, young and old, professionals and amateurs and is one of the few sports which can be enjoyed for an entire lifetime. Golf can be enjoyed on a social basis, among friends or colleagues or highly competitively at club, area or national level.
The Scottish Golf Union aims to make golf as accessible as possible for everyone. Scotland boasts one of the highest number of golf clubs and courses per head capita in the world, meaning that it’s easy to find a golf club near you. The SGU is supported by a healthy and vibrant club membership across Scotland and we encourage people to become part of our golfing family by joining a local golf club.
Through ClubGolf, Scotland’s national junior golf programme, the SGU is actively promoting golf through schools and driving those youngsters being introduced to golf towards their nearest club.
