  • Welcome to St Andrews Thistle Golf Club

    Celebrating 200 Years!

    This year the 'wee Club' of St Andrews celebrates its bicentenary. In addition to our regular program of events, we have a number of exciting events celebrating this milestone anniversary.

    The first bicentenary event is the Captain's Driving In, which will be held on April 14th at 6pm on the first tee of the Old Course. All members are encouraged to attend this historic event. It will coincide with the opening of a bicentennial exhibit at the British Golf Museum. There are a limited number of tickets available to members for the museum opening and a supper that follows at the St Andrews Golf Club.

    Originally the 'Merchants Club' the Thistle stays true to its traditions by playing its medals and competitions on Thursdays, the early closing day for shops and businesses when such a thing existed.

    The Thistle features a full fixture list throughout the year with two events over the winter months: the Bruce Trophy over three courses and the K C Wright Memorial Trophy over the over the Strathtyrum course.

    The criteria for joining is to be a member of one of the three senior men's clubs in St Andrews i.e. the New Golf Club, the Royal & Ancient Golf Club, and the St Andrews Golf Club. At present the Thistle Golf Club has approximately 250 members and new members will be made very welcome.

    Details of subscription fees and joining instructions may be found elsewhere on this site under Membership/Subscriptions.
