Welcome to RHGC

As Captain of Register House Golf Club I would like to issue a warm invitation to all golfers; young and old, new and former members, male and female to join us Register House Golf Club. Golfers of all abilities attend our outings with handicaps ranging from 5 to 30+


RHGC claims to be the oldest, non-course owning office golf club in the world and you may find the information noted  on our history page.


RHGC organise seven outings each year and run two knockout competitions, one scratch and one handicap. We also have an annual match against Leven Golfing Society, which is played over the magnificent Leven Links. Membership of the Club is set at a nominal £1.


All outings are normally discounted. There is also the option of joining a Savings Scheme direct from payroll to allow members to save towards the cost of attending outings organised by RHGC. (please contact for more details)


The format of our outings consist of one or two rounds of golf, and depending on price and offers available may include coffee and roll on arrival, soup and sandwiches at lunchtime. The morning ‘medal round’ for the two round outings is played for one of the Club’s trophies that are on display at reception in Meadowbank House. The format of any afternoon round on our two round outings depends on the number of players attending the outing, but is always a fun team event.


Further details of each monthly outing are available at the begining of each month.

Founded in 1878 (or possibly earlier), Register House Golf Club claims to be the oldest, non-course owning office golf club in the world. The historical background to the Club is reflected in its name; in 1878, Register House (at the east end of Princes Street) was home to both Registers of Scotland and the Scottish Record Office (now National Archive of Scotland).
