What is Scottish Golf?

Scottish Golf is the governing body for the sport of golf in Scotland. We represent golfers and golf clubs to champion the sport in our country and maintain Scotland’s position at the forefront of golf.

Scottish Golf’s role is to lead our clubs, develop champions and provide the opportunity for everyone in Scotland to play golf for life. We represent 587 affiliated golf clubs across the country representing a total membership of over 200,000 golf club members.

Based at the Home of Golf in St Andrews, Scottish Golf’s responsibilities span across most aspects of the game in Scotland, from our original core business of staging national amateur championships and managing Scotland’s national teams, expanding to encouraging more youngsters and adults to play golf, providing support services to member clubs and lobbying government to protect the interests of the game.
