Welcome to the Eriskay Golf Club website!
In our 19th year of existence, the past year has been perhaps the busiest in the Club's illustrious history!
We are delighted that the Club has
- been granted membership of the Scottish Golf Union
- affilliated with Tain Golf Club
- become members of the North District Golf Association
- started to administer our Members' handicaps
- commenced play on our greatly extended season's Fixtures and Events
- set up our first website!
For season 2013, we have been running six medal competitions, our annual (2 round) Club Championship, and our two longstanding Eriskay "Whisky Galore" Open Competitions, at the Old Tom Morris-designed Tain course, with the kind permission of our golfing colleagues at Tain. Find details of the Tain golf course on their website.
We entered teams in the two Northern Counties Cup events (thanks to the West End Guest House who sponsored the Seniors team event). Although our performances in these did "leave room for improvement", nevertheless it was ancouraging for the Club to be permitted to play in these prestigious competitions.
The Club was also "on tour" this summer, with a 3 day trip to Orkney Golf Club, where we sadly came second to a fine Orkney team in the annual "Battle of the Isles" for the Jack Nicklaus Flag on their fine course. Better luck next year!
Please check back to our website from time to time - we will continue publishing new information which should be of interest to both our members and to visitors.
And, if really keen, follow us on Twitter - @Eriskaygolfer - for general gossip and news.
The Politician Trophy (sponsored by Gellions Pub)
This, the penultimate competition of the season, was held at Tain golf course on 22 September 2013. The triumphant golfer on the day was Robert Stewart, whose net 71 beat off Robbie Innes by a better inward half. His namesake, Robert H Stewart, captured the scratch prize with a gross 79.
Final Competition of the Season
The season draws to an end with the final competition - the October Stableford, scheduled for 6 October. We are delighted to announce that Willie Rostock, of Tain Golf Club, wil be sponsoring this event. Last chance to shine! Get your entries in here!

Your website editor is sincerely apologetic that he has done almost nowt with the numerous photos taken at Club competitions throughout the season. This is largely to do with the lack of time I have, but is also because I have not yet found a simple way to add them to the site in a fashion which visitors to the site will find interesting. I shall persevere! Hopefully at some stage over the next few months of gloom and darkness (aka winter) I will get them sorted. Meantime, if any of you have photos in any way connected with the Club, please email me to let me know (but do not attach them to the message at that stage). I can deal with any type of photo, from digital ones, to old-fashioned prints, even slides and the condition does not need to be all that good - I can usually improve them.
