Welcome to the website of George Heriot's School Former Pupils Golf Club.
Heriot’s FPGolf Club was formed 125 years ago and with over 170 members is by far the most active FP golf club in Scotland - our annual dinner alone attracts more people than 'Sonians & Accies combined.
Club competitions run throughout the year, including a hole in hole, A and B championships, foursomes throughout the summer and greensomes in the winter, giving members a chance to play courses all over Scotland. We also have matches against other clubs, golf’s unique handicap system giving players of all abilities the chance to represent the Heriot badge. In recent years the scratch teams have performed well winning the Grafton Morrisch trophy at Hunstanton, The Coronation Schools here in Edinburgh and of course the Dispatch Trophy.
There are three outings each year, playing a links course in the spring this year Elie, Muirfield for the summer meeting, then in the autumn we normally go inland, this year being our 125th anniversary year there is a tour to Yorkshire taking in Fulford, Ganton and York
The social side is never neglected. There is a formal dinner in early October (9th this year) at Goldenacre. In July we hold a fun evening at the old course in Musselburgh, where members and partners negotiate round the historic links using old hickory clubs at certain holes, followed by a meal and suitable refreshments.
Over the years the club has produced not only some of the great golfers of the Lothians, but many of the leading administrators in the game, indeed Bob Kilgour is the current honourary president of the Lothians Golf Association, past president of the Scottish Golf Union Graham Ewart is our president and Peter Dawson secretary of the Royal and Ancient of St Andrews is a member.
