Prestige Without Pretence

At Crail Golfing Society we are proud of our prestige but equally proud of our reputation as a club that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Generations of families, from all walks of life, from all over the world have gathered here for golf, competition and good-humoured conversation. Membership of Crail Golfing Society is an experience that cannot be replicated, and value that is impossible to match.

Thistle Youth Memberships
