Thistle Memberships

In the 1880’s as golf became more popular amongst the broader population, ‘Thistle’ clubs started to be formed, including one at Crail. Young golfers, keen for competition amongst their peer group. That spirit of development continues today with young Members enjoying the same benefits of Full Society Membership at an affordable cost.


Overseas Membership

Our richly diverse overseas membership is spread across 23 countries and over 35 states in the USA. We enjoy the added flavour, style and good humour this brings to club life. It's testament to the quality of the golf courses and our brand of Scottish hospitality that we see our overseas members so often.


Clubhouse Membership

The Balcomie Clubhouse, with it's stunning sea views is a special place to spend time with family and friends. The restaurant, lounge and bar are open year-round to Clubhouse Members and their guests. A relaxed place to eat out, entertain or attend the array of events that the club puts on throughout the year.



Junior Membership

Games to be played and lifelong friendships made. The first junior medal at Crail was played back in 1903. The development of young golfers is a deeply embedded in our club culture. We make sure that cost is not a barrier, and provide a safe, relaxed and fun place to learn and play the game.
