The Club

The Clubhouse

The Royal Montrose Mercantile Golf Club was formed on 1st November 2019 following a merger of the Royal Montrose Golf Club and the Montrose Mercantile Golf Club.

The Royal Montrose Golf Club had been formed in 1986 following a merger of the Royal Albert Golf Club (1810), the Victoria Golf Club (1865) and the North Links Ladies Golf Club (1927).

The Montrose Mercantile Golf Club was formed in 1879.

The current clubhouse dates from 1898.

The club welcomes Men, Ladies, Student and Junior members, and visiting golfers to Montrose Links.


Competitions are run throughout the year on both the Medal and Broomfield courses. Men’s Medal competitions are played almost every Saturday of the year, and Ladies Medal competitions are held most Tuesdays.

The Club runs numerous Adult and Junior Matchplay competitions throughout the season and submits teams to County Golf Association events. A very active Senior Men’s section play ‘Home and Away’ matches against other Senior clubs in Angus, Fife and Aberdeenshire.

All playing members holding a current valid handicap are eligible to take part in these club events. Partners can usually be found for Country and International members visiting the town.
