For example, Royal Burgess is generally accepted as the oldest Golf Society in Scotland, dating to 1732, but they moved their location and so the oldest course continually played is Musselburgh , which dates to 1774. Here are some of the oldest recorded clubs or courses that we would recommend you play today.
The Royal Curragh Golf Club
Many more famous Championships have been held at the Club since, with the greatest professionals of the modern golfing era winning on Wentworth’s hallowed courses. Members and their guests are free to play all three of our magnificent golf courses and the privilege of walking in the footsteps of champions every day.
One of the UK’s most exclusive golf clubs is to start charging £125,000 to new joiners. Wentworth , which was bought by the Beijing-based Reignwood Group in September 2014, has told existing members they must stump up £100,000. Annual fees on top of that are to rise from £8,000 to £16,000.
Mirimichi Golf Course
Golf has been played at St Andrews Links for 600 years. In 1552 Archbishop Hamilton’s Charter recognised the right of the people of St Andrews to play golf at the Links. St Andrews Links takes up almost 300 hectares and The Castle Course almost 90 hectares. Old Course figures.

A common misconception is that the word GOLF is an acronym for Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden . This is a 20th century joke and definitely not true. It is now generally accepted that the ‘golf’ is derived from an old word meaning ‘club’, though this in turn may have older cognate roots dating back to ancient times.
The Old Links at Musselburgh
Golf is still very popular in Ireland , most would even combine it with other sports. The best thing about golfing in Ireland is you can avoid the crowds, depending on the time of year, and get to play on some of the best courses in the world surrounded by stunning scenery.
