We would like to remind everyone that club lockers are in fact a privilege and not a right . It has come to our attention that some people who are no longer members of the club still have keys for and indeed equipment in the club lockers. We would like to make it clear that we will now empty any such lockers at the start of each month ,please note that the club will not be held responsible for any equipment removed from these lockers. If you or anyone you know may be affected please contact the Pro Shop before the end of the month to return any keys etc. The first cull will start on Monday 1st October Thank You

What an achievement from Eyemouth Golf Club's European Tour Professional David Drysdale on shooting a final round course record 63 in the Irish Open at Portstewart Golf Club and winning a place in the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.
Congratulations to Iain Methven who had his 2nd Hole In One on the 3rd Hole at Eyemouth Golf Club on Wednesday night. He will say that it was a great shot that never looked anywhere else but truth be told he fatted it a little it caught the down slope and kicked into the hole. Always better being lucky than good!

A rerport from Robert S who played the course on Thursday 31 March 2016. Played here today, a treat by my very good friend Tom, & this 'Cliff Top' Links Course is Wonderful ... I just can't Rate it Highly Enough! We've played dozens of the best links courses in Scotland including Machrihanish, Tain, Brora, the Kittocks, Montrose, the Glen, etc. & this one surpasses many of them. The sheer variety of outstanding golf holes to play here is unequaled in my experience. The Signature 6th Hole is rightly rated in the Top 18 Holes in Scottish Golf but there are also a host of other fantastic holes on offer including the 13th, at 656 Yrds long off the back tee, Scotland’s longest hole. This course has everything you could ever want or expect from a Links, Fairways are immaculately manicured & Greens are large, fast & of an exceptional standard. I can truly say this course is a beautiful golfing challenge & it's impossible not to enjoy playing here, it's just Stunning! Don't think about it, Go! ... this is a course you'll never forget playing!

He will be succeeded by Vice-Captain Colin Aitchison. We trust all our members will give their full support to Colin during his period as Captain.
