Welcome to the Caledonia Golf Club
On behalf of the Caledonia Golf Club and its members, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our club.
Carnoustie has a reputation as a true test of golf, especially when the wind blows. All who come to play at Carnoustie marvel at its simple, but effective, design, which makes playing it such a pleasure. Whatever fate you suffer at the hands of the golfing gods, you are assured of some very memorable experiences.
Our website provides visitors with the chance to find out more about the club's long history, plus the excellent services and facilities that we can offer guests to our clubhouse. With a special section on the characters who have graced the club down the years, the website also offers visitors a chance to learn about some of the special people who have contributed to the club's unique identity.
We've also included a golfing events' section, so people planning a trip to Carnoustie can tie in their visit with a sporting occasion. To complement the events page, we've also provided information about society golf days and special price golf tickets that visitors to Carnoustie Links can buy.
Our clubhouse, which dates back well over 100 years, is the perfect place to unwind with 'a dram'.
We look forward to your visit.
Elliot Davie, Club Captain, 2015-Present.
Why You Should Join Us
Established in 1887
While the official records of the Club’s earliest days have sadly disappeared, a careful study of the files of local newspapers gives a reliable picture of how the Caley came into being. It was on Thursday 26 May 1887, that the Dundee ‘Courier and Angus’ reported:
‘A meeting has been held for the forming of a new golf club. The meeting was well attended and it was unanimously agreed to form a club to be called the Caledonia Golf Club. The following were elected office bearers for the season – Captain: Mr Jas Winter, Secretary and Treasurer: Messrs DA Crawford and D Winter. Thirty members were enrolled and the first competition of the new club takes place on Saturday next.’
