Welcome to the Eriskay Golf Club website!
A Particular Welcome to Visitors!
This is a Golf Club with a difference! To appreciate just how different, you should probably start with the "History of the Club" page...... And, if after reading that you still would like to be considered for Membership, here's where to find more information.

We are - ass ever - hugely grateful to our Sponsors for the two Opens - Phillip Bannerman for the Senior Open and Willie Rostock for the Gents Open.
Roll on next year!
The season is wearing on and there are only a few competitions left to play, starting with the, two-day, Club Championships, this year to be played at Alyth (3 & 4 September). See Willie Rusk as soon as possible if you would like to play.
As ever, we are greatly indebted to our Sponsors, who help the Club throughout the Season with their valuable contributions. We would ask our members, and others reading our website, to check out the pages on our Sponsors - you may well find the services they are offering are of use to you.
One AGM decision I can advise is that the fees for the 2015 season have been set at the real bargain price of £90. Look at what you get for that!
- 8 rounds of competitive golf at Tain Golf Course (plus 3 more if you apply for the Orkney trip)
- Reduced fee of £10 for the annual Whisky Galore Open and Seniors Open
- Golf Insurance (feel free to hit passers-by at will, knowing the cost may be covered...)
- SGU and North District fees paid on your behalfHowdidido
- Full handicap admin & management
By now all Members should have received their letter of invitation to renew their Membership. If you have not yet received that, please contact Willie Rusk immediately. If you have received your letter, the Club would greatly benefit from your Membership subscription being paid as soon as possible. Find out here full details of membership and how to pay.
