Welcome to the website of George Heriot's School Former Pupils Golf Club.

George Heriot’s School Former Pupils Golf Club was formed in 1890 and with over 170 members is by far the most active FP golf club in Scotland.

Club competitions run throughout the year, including a hole & 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 Morrish Trophy at Hunstanton, The Queen Elizabeth Coronation Schools Tournament here in Edinburgh and, of course the Dispatch Trophy, see photos below.

There are three outings each year, playing a links course in the spring, Muirfield for the summer meeting, then in the autumn we normally go inland, with a weekend tour taking place every 3 years

The social side is never neglected. There is a formal dinner held annually at Goldenacre in October.

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 our honorary president Graham Ewart is past president of the Scottish Golf Union and an honorary vice president of the Lothians Golf Association, our honorary vice president Bob Kilgour is past president and an honorary vice president of the Lothians Golf Association and Peter Dawson is former secretary of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.

The current subscription is £20.00 p.a., an application form can be downloaded in the "About" section.
