MEMBERSHIP OFFERS AVAILABLE FOR MEMBERSHIP UNTIL THE END OF 2020
With Full Membership available for £270 and under 25 membership at just £130, it really is a no-brainer to join Galashiels Golf Club
Here are 16 other great reasons to become a member of Galashiels Golf Club
- Unlimited Access to our Course – whether you play competitive or just the odd social game, being a member offer you the chance to play our course whenever you want throughout the week. There’s no need to book tee times through the week, just turn up and play.
- Golf Competitively – the club has a thriving competition scene. Throughout the year we have at least 1 competition per week, throughout the summer there are at least 2, including a Saturday and Wednesday tournament. We also host a number of team events, including the Greensomes Pairs Winter League and charity texas scrambles. Our senior section hosts a 9 hole stableford every Friday morning. We will also be offering Junior competitions throughout the summer.
- Choose How Much You Play – Let’s face it, time is a major factor for people nowadays and there isn’t always time for 18 holes. If you find that this has been an issue then you’re in the right place as being a member at Gala Golf Club allows you to play however you like. You can come up for 3, 6, 9 or even 12 holes if you need. Or you can even just come up for a hit into the net and a putt on the practice green if you are feeling lazy!!
- A Great Friendly Clubhouse Environment – our spacious clubhouse is a great place for eating, drinking and socializing with your friends or family and children are made very welcome. Value-for-money prices and great customer service.
- Enjoy health benefits of golfing – when your golf isn’t going great, at least you can enjoy the walk at our stunning course. And, with an average of at least 800 calories burned during an 18 hole round, the health benefits of golf are often understated.
- Be Part of the Local Community – membership of Galashiels golf club is a great way to be part of the local community, networking with other people from the town and making life-long friendships is par for the course here.
- Flexible Payment – SORRY – currently unavailable
- Use of the Practice Facilities – come up and improve your game with the use of the club’s practice facilities. We have a brand new hitting net where you can practice your long game or even just as a warm up. The putting green is cut to the same excellent standard as our on-course greens so a few putts down there never goes a-miss before a round. We also have a pitching area where you can hit 120 yard shots to a green. This doubles up as part of the juniors’ course, something that has been developed over the last few years at the club with help from McHardy Financial along with the hard work of our course staff and Juniors’ coach Scott Robertson.
- Preferential Green Fees at Championship Courses – members of Scottish Golf Ltd affiliated clubs can access preferential green fees of up to 50% discount at some of the best courses in Scotland, including Muirfield, Gleneagles, Castle Stuart, and Royal Troon. Full members with a handicap will receive a Scottish Golf Membership Card which provides an array of additional national benefits from exclusive competitions, partner special offers and a free Handicap APP.
- Discounts on Golf in the Borders – As a member of a Borders course, you can have 50% off regular green fees at many of the clubs in the area.
- The James Braid Association – the James Braid Association provides members of clubs that were designed by James Braid a chance to play at often massively reduced rates. Clubs are located all over the world and include places such as Bruntsfield Links, Goswick Links, Lundin Ladies club, Panmure Links, as well as a host of clubs all over the UK and further afield. See our page for more info and a list of clubs.
- Junior Golf – With free under-16 membership, it is no wonder we are growing our junior section. We also offer coaching as part of the national ClubGolf programme, which provides regular summer coaching for kids. We offer coaching on a Friday afternoon (after schools close) throughout the summer, from April to September. Sessions are only £2 per child.
- Invite Your Friends – we offer preferential ‘Members’ Guest Rate’ green fees from only £5, giving you the chance to invite your friends to play the course. We also host a few ‘invitation’ competitions throughout the year that allow you to invite friends from other courses to come experience our unique course and clubhouse atmosphere.
- Enjoy the Views – Our elevated position above Galashiels offers magnificent views over the valley and beyond. It is surely one of the most picturesque courses in Scotland.
- Enjoy the wildlife – common sightings on the course include Deer, Buzzards, foxes, kestrels, as well as a host of birdlife. There are commonly sightings of adders also, just don’t get too close!!!
- Value for Money – By offering membership at the equivalent of less than £6 per week, we think that Galashiels Golf Club provides a package that offers unbeatable value for money in the area.
