Golf Today

Scottish Golf is the national 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 as the Home of Golf. Our role is to lead our clubs, develop champions and provide the opportunity for everyone in Scotland to play golf for life.

Around half a million people in Scotland play golf whether a member of a club or on a social basis. There are 587 clubs with a combined membership of more than 211,000 golfers and over 50,000 people playing competitive golf on a weekly basis throughout the season.

And it’s not all about 18 hole competitions these days either. Golfers can pick and choose how long they want to spend on the course and what fun formats they’d like to play – either as part of a club competition or with friends.

Golf is a sport for all and Scottish Golf exists to make sure it’s a great experience for everyone.
