Membership

Becoming a member of Gairloch Golf Club entitles the holder to unlimited free golf for 12 months. Members may take part in club competitions and may elect to have a handicap which is maintained by the club. Adult members are entitled to introduce a number of Guests each year to play at reduced rates and full members benefit from Reciprocal Play Agreements with Strathpeffer, Lochcarron, Ullapool and Isle of Skye Golf Clubs. Of particular interest to new members are the Buddy System and Coaching operated by the club.

In addition to the competitive events run by the club there are a number of more social golfing occasions when players of all standards play together and enjoy the clubhouse hospitality afterwards.
