Life Membership

Become a Life Member of this exclusive Golf Club for just £500.

Life Membership – one off payment£500.00

Available to all non-residents of the Outer Hebrides.

All that was left in the kitty was £35.00 cash and six bottles of whisky! Former Club Captain, Willie Fulton admitted to himself as he drove home from the latest committee meeting held in a back room of the local pub that the future looked bleak – and then the idea of the Life Membership scheme came to mind.

For less than the cost of a couple of rounds at many courses, becoming a Life Member entitles you to play this magical course for the rest of your life.

Becoming a Life Member can make a wonderful souvenir of your visit to the Outer Hebrides. Alternatively, it would make a wonderful gift. The success of the Harris Golf Club is due, in no small measure to the contribution and support of its Life Members.

All Life Members receive a certificate and bag tag. You can play as much golf as you wish when you visit the island and you are invited to participate in the Annual Life Members’ competition and Open Championship.

In 2008, the concept of an Isle of Harris Golf Club tweed jacket was introduced with the tweed designed by Donald John Mackay MBE and the copyright held by the Club. These highly contested jackets are awarded to the winners of the Isle of Harris Open Championship.

Golfers worldwide enjoy being a part of this unique place and some make a point of making a pilgrimage to the Western Isles of Scotland to play their course and to enjoy Hebridean hospitality which is second to none. We have Life Members worldwide – in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, America, Brazil, Kuwait, Bermuda, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Spain, France, South Africa, Wales, England and mainland Scotland.

You can choose to further enhance your Life Membership by agreeing to pay a small annual administration fee, currently £30.00.  This fee will enable you to gain access to the Club’s Masterscoreboard system allowing you to book tee times online.  It will also allow you to enter club competitions and have the Isle of Harris Golf Club as your home club and your handicap administered by us (if desired).  The administration fee becomes due each January.  If you choose this option you will be invoiced by email.
