A Warm Welcome TO THE "MERKIE"

The Captain's Gala Day

The Montrose Mercantile Golf Club is a private golf club dedicated to providing its members, their families and guests with a warm and relaxed environment whilst maintaining the legacy of our history and traditions. The “Merky”, as the Club is affectionately known to its members, has just over nine hundred members comprising gents and ladies, ordinary, senior and life, junior boys and girls as well as social members

We welcome Day Visitors playing the Montrose Links courses to make full use of our facilities and catering. Just ring the door buzzer. Our Medal course is a classic Scottish links layout, with a formidable history stretching back to 1562, which makes it the fifth oldest course in the world. The Medal is consistently listed in the Golf Monthly World's Top 100 courses and celebrated its 450th year in 2012.

The Medal course is complemented by our Broomfield links which is maintained to the same high standards. Originally a nine-hole course, the Broomfield was extended to 18 holes in 1915 and now measures 4,800 yards. The Course does not require long carries from the tee, but accurate approach shots are a must to find the small greens.

  • The Clubhouse

    The Club’s first clubhouse, known as “Golf Lodge”, was purpose built in 1891 and was erected by subscription loans from some of the then 200 members, who each contributed one pound to help pay for the building. Between 1902 and 1903, work commenced on building the present clubhouse which is situated a short distance north of “Golf Lodge”. This work was funded by the local businessman and philanthropist Mr William Jameson Paton and it was he who officially opened the present clubhouse in August 1904.
