Welcome to the Golf House Club and Elie & Earlsferry Ladies’ Golf Club. We look forward to having you come and play on our historic and picturesque links and hope that you make use of the facilities available. Here’s some additional information that you might find useful.
At the top of the golf club lane, turn left for the visitors’ Car Park.
Please come to the clubhouse situated by the 18th green and check in either at our Starter’s Office or with one of the clubhouse staff. They will point you in the right direction and make sure that you are served with any food or drink that you require. Please note that clubs should be left outside the clubhouse in the area near the Starter’s Office and not brought into either of the Locker Rooms.
Visitors are asked to wear suitable golfing attire on the course and shorts should be tailored without cargo pockets and worn with long socks. Shirts must have a collar and not be worn outside the waistband.
Golfing attire, except for external waterproof apparel and spiked golf shoes is allowed in most areas of the clubhouse. In the Members’ Lounge a jacket and tie for men and the equivalent dress for ladies is required.
Denim clothing, training shoes and football or rugby shirts are not allowed on the course or in the clubhouse.
Golf Professional & Shop
On the other side of the lane beside the tennis courts and putting green, is the golf shop which is fully stocked with everything you might need from Strokesaver course guides to a rented set of clubs. If you wish to hit a few warm up shots before your round, you can also buy a bucket of balls for the driving range.
Trolleys, Buggies and Caddies
Hand pulled trolleys are available for rent from the golf shop. There are a limited number of buggies available for hire which are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis to those who would not otherwise be able to play golf. Before using a buggy at Elie, a golfer must produce a valid driving licence and must read and sign a Disclaimer Form. If you would like to reserve a buggy you can do this at the time of booking or by calling the Club on +44 (0)1333 330301. We do not have our own caddies at Elie but can arrange them if requested. Please note that any bookings for caddies that are cancelled within 7 days of play will attract a cancellation fee of £30 per caddy cancelled.
Handicaps and Speed of Play
All golfers with a recognised golf handicap, up to a maximum handicap of 28 (36 for ladies) are welcome, and proof of handicap may be requested. If there is a faster game playing behind or you have fallen behind the game in front, please let it through to keep the course moving and to make sure everyone enjoys their round of golf to the full.
Mobile phones should not be used on the course and can only be used from the Car Park, away from the 18th green or in the clubhouse from the telephone booth in the hallway.
