VIII Women's Golf Clubs

Women's Golf Clubs

Most golf clubs in Scotland are now mixed and have ladies sections.  Entry to the Royal & Ancient GC is by invitation only, but the Royal Musselburgh GC (1774), first sponsor of women's golf in January 1811, would welcome applications. 

Of the 18 oldest golf societies, which were originally male societies, the following are still active and now mixed golf clubs.
