Shop for Clubs, Equipment and Clothing in Edinburgh, the Home of Golf

The city of Edinburgh has always been central to the development of the sport of Golf. The Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh lays claim to the prestigious title of the oldest golfing society in the world with references to its existence as early as 1735. A short time later, in 1744, the Gentlemen Golfers of Edinburgh drafted thirteen rules for the first ever open golf tournament. The participants played golf on a course in Leith Links and the winner (Captain John Rattray) was awarded a silver cup and became the first recorded winner of an open golf championship. He was given the rather wonderful title “Captain of the Golf”.

Now, of course, golf is a multi-million pound industry played and watched by millions of people across the world, and Edinburgh has nearly seventy golf courses including the famous Muirfield course which has played host to the Open Championship sixteen times.

Edinburgh also has some great shops where you can stock up on golfing equipment, accessories and clothing so that you can look and play your best while enjoying a round. The golf Pro Shop at The Royal Burgess is a must for anyone with an interest in the history of golf, and is also a great place to book lessons and rounds at this incredible course. For the most stylish golfing clothing ladies should make a bee line for Golfing Lady in Haymarket, and both ladies and gentlemen will be well served to visit Golfino in the city center.

Whether you are a beginner or a Pro, Edinburgh has some great shops selling everything you could ever need to look the part when teeing off.
