  • Welcome to St Andrews Thistle Golf Club

    In 2017 the St Andrews Thistle Golf Club celebrated its bicentenary.
    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 is limiting its membership to 300, in order to avoid unnecessary strain being put on available tee times etc. Once that number is reached, new members applying for membership, once approved by the committee, will go on a waiting list.

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