Please note; the Clubhouse will close each evening approximately 30 minutes after the Bar closing times shown above, except on days when an event is taking place in the Club in the evening. * Extended hours may apply for specific events.

In an effort to reduce costs in this challenging economic climate, the Bar staff have been instructed that when the course is closed, i.e. darknes, and there is no one on the premises, the bar will be closed. Members who are considering coming down to the club when the course is closed are advised to call ahead to check if the club is open.

WELCOME to the Royal Montrose Golf Club

Founded on 1st January 1810 as the Montrose Golf Club, and reputed to be the 9th oldest golf club in the world.

In 1845 Prince Albert bestowed Royal Patronage on the Club, and the name was changed to the Royal Albert Golf Club, making it the third oldest Royal Club.

In 1986 the Royal Albert Golf Club merged with the Victoria Golf Club to form the Royal Montrose Golf Club. 

We are honoured to have HRH Prince Andrew, Duke of York, as our current patron.


Golf is recorded as being played over Montrose Links since 1562 and it is reputed to be the 5th oldest golf course in the world.  Montrose Golf Links celebrated it's 450th Birthday in 2012.

Montrose Championship Medal course has enjoyed the honour of hosting several high-profile events over the last 150 years including the Scottish Professional’s Championship, the Scottish Amateur Championship, the British Boys Championship and Internationals, and the Final Qualifying Competition for The Opens held at nearby Carnoustie in 1999 and 2007.

Europro Tour events have been held successfully in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and will be held again in 2016. Also in 2016 Montrose Medal will host Local Qualifying for the 2016 Senior’s Open at Carnoustie.
