The Main Lounge, located on the first floor, is a large and comfortable social area where you can eat, drink and enjoy the company of your fellow golfers. It is not only the outdoor view that is highly recommended - by browsing the pictures and boards hung on the walls of the Main Lounge, you can get a real taste of the Club’s history.
Notably, the Main Lounge contains original features of a locker room that were designed in 1902 to mirror the big room of the Royal and Ancient. Old Tom Morris enjoyed sitting by the window and watching the activities of the Old Course and beyond.
A selection of beers, spirits, wine, soft drinks and coffee are available seven days a week from 11.00 am until 10.30 pm during the summer months. A range of cold and hot snacks and meals are served between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm with extended hours at weekends. Catering outside these hours can be organised by prior arrangement with the catering team.
Children under the age of 10 are not allowed into the Main Lounge. All children under 18 (unless members) should be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for their behaviour.
Please note the following regarding dress:
1. Clothes should not be draped or hung over chairs. Clothing not being worn should be placed in a cloakroom or locker room.
2. No outdoor clothes (but please apply common sense for items like sports jackets etc.) are to be taken into the Main Bar including:
- Sleeveless body warmers
- Hats and gloves
These should be removed upon entering the Clubhouse and placed in a locker room or cloakroom.
3. Golf Shoes: Clean, dry soft spike golf shoes may only be worn in the areas adjacent to the changing rooms and not in the Main Lounge, Bar or public areas.
Reading Room and Cocktail Bar
The Reading Room on the ground floor, and the Cocktail Bar upstairs are smaller and often quieter areas where you can relax and socialise. Please note that no food is to be taken into the Reading Room.
One of the largest areas in the Clubhouse, and benefitting from the magnificent views over the Links, the Mixed Lounge is an ideal setting for lunches by day and social events by night.
The Restaurant is open for Saturday night dining, 18.30-20.30 – reservation essential. Please make reservations by contacting the Bar and Catering team: +44 (0) 1334 473 426.

Throughout the year the Club hosts various dining events. Special menus are created for special occasions, entertainment evenings and a number of the larger competitions.
The Billiards Room has two tables and hosts regular Tuesday night competitions and annual knockout competitions.
The shop stocks a range of New Golf Club merchandise. It is also home to the touch-screen computer used for competition score entry (score cards should be placed in the box alongside the computer).
The Club has 300 lockers, rented on an annual basis. Any golfing Member interested in a locker should please contact the office; a short waiting list is currently in operation.
