Earlsferry Thistle Golf Club instituted 1875

Earlsferry Thistle Golf Club


A warm welcome to the Earlsferry Thistle Golf Club. We are a wee club with a great and proud history. We have been playing as a Club on the Elie Links in the scenic East Neuk of Fife since 1875. Neuk is the Scottish word for corner and here in this part of Fife we enjoy all year round golf on the Links. Closure of the course is a rarity, mats are unheard of and the playing on temporary greens is hardly ever. The setting of the course is by the sea and golfers on it enjoys panoramic views over the Firth of Forth and beyond.


We have a legal agreement with the “Big Club” (Elie Golf House Club) and pay a green fee to enjoy playing rights on the links. We have an all year round fixture list of competitions and play inter club matches. We are limited to a maximum of 60 male members and the Earlsferry Thistle Ladies Club who also use our Clubhouse are limited to 25 lady members.


At the Thistle we enjoy our golf and welcome all fellow golfers to play in our Open that is held in June. We currently do not have our compliment of 60 full members and have vacancies this year. We always encourage potential new members to come along and see what we have to offer. An online application form can be accessed on the membership page.
