Temporary Membership

Temporary Membership is available for family/friends of New Golf Club Members for a period of one week, at a cost of £30 per person.
Temporary Membership allows visitors to make use of the clubhouse independently of the Club Member by whom they were introduced.  Facilities include the dining and bar areas, and the changing facilities (male visitors only).  
Please refer to the Club Rules relating to Temporary Membership below.


Please note the following restrictions:

  • We are unable to provide Temporary Membership for business guests.
  • New Golf Club membership does not provide any golf playing privileges on the Links Courses. If you will play golf in St Andrews during your visit, tee time bookings and green fee payments should be made directly with the St Andrews Links Trust, the body responsible for managing the courses in the town (
  • Temporary Members may not sign-in guests to the clubhouse.
