Broughty Golf Club

Founded in 1878, Broughty Golf Club is one of the original golf clubs in Monifieth and has a proud tradition based on the undoubted sociability of the club. Broughty's history is a fascinating journey through the development both of golf and the British Empire with many founding members returning from posts abroad and having their legacy remembered in competitions such as the India Medal and Calcutta Cup.

All visitors are assured of a very warm welcome at Broughty with a full range of meals and refreshments available from breakfast through to dinner.

The club has an excellent range of facilities - both the main and upstairs lounges have a lovely outlook on the 18th green of the Medal course. The downstairs lounge has a very well stocked bar with a discreet television viewing area, just in front of the trophy cabinet. On one of the other walls, the history of the club can be traced in the names of captains, club champions and honorary life members.

The name of W.W.Murphy - a monifieth golfing legend - stands out boldly on the champions board at Broughty. Maurice Lindsay however is rapidly reaching that status too having captured the Club Championship 6 times since 2000 along with a clutch of other club trophies. He had an incredible season in 2001 winning the Broughty Club Championship,the Links championship and the County Championship,in addition he partnered Gregor Irvine to win the Mail on Sunday National foursomes. His performances at the county level have also been outstanding. Doig , Dye, Cairnie and Rae are other surnames which have regularly required the attention of the engraver over the years.

Upstairs there is a smaller lounge complete with pool table and another television, to save any disputes over who watches what.

The Club also has a separate dining room where members and visitors are extremely well cared for and extremely well fed by Doreen Orr and her staff. Visitors to the two courses at Monifieth can have the full range of meals throughout the day from the welcoming bacon rolls and coffee to a light or full lunch and on to high teas and dinners.

Facilities for visitors are first class with separate changing facilities and the opportunity for a shower at the end of a round.

Here at Broughty Golf Club we are always delighted to see new faces and welcome new members if you are thinking about dusting off the clubs or perhaps starting for the first time then why not give Broughty Golf Club a visit, our club and Golf Course will be sure not to disappoint.
