Membership entitles the member to unlimited golf and may take part in club competitions and elect to have a handicap maintained by the club. A major benefit is that the Elie links allows golf all year without the need for temporary greens and the use of mats. In addition, the club has an extensive fixture list throughout the year with a full range of competitions and matches to play in and to enjoy clubhouse hospitality afterwards.
