Dirleton Castle Golf Club

Established 1854

On the 20th February 1854 six golfers sat around a table in the Golf Tavern, Gullane to decide whether or not to form a golf club.

George Heriot Stevens, Robert Cole, Peter Cathie. David Saunders, Henry Robertson and John Maxwell could have had little idea that night that Dirleton Castle Golf Club (DCGC) as it was subsequently known, would still be in existence 138 years later; nor could they have foreseen that their creation would still be playing over the same links and would still cater for the needs of local golfers. The men could not have envisaged that DCGC would develop into a highly respected club with excellent players, nor that there would eventually be a ladies' golf club bearing the same name.
