The Renaissance Club

What we say

Just needs time to find its feet and itself. It’s changed a few times since it opened and it feels like that. The new holes by the sea are a great addition, but possibly affect the overall flow.

The Renaissance Club is a Tom Doak-designed course - his only current course in Scotland. It opened in 2008 and, after a land swap with neighbours Muirfield, now has some of the most 'stunning' holes in golf to add to its already championship golf course. 

Renaissance is a private members club. However, the club will allow individuals with a passion for golf to make a request to play on select dates via a 'One Time Experience' opportunity.

The club also boasts spa facilities in the locker rooms, a gym, world-class practice facilities and 24 luxury rooms.

  • 5 out of 5 Great Course

    By MPS

    Not sure I like the idea of a very expensive, very exclusive, American style club on Scottish soil but the course itself is fantastic. The new holes at the turn are a spectacular addition to a very solid layout. Interesting green complexes without being too extreme like a few greens on the Castle or Mach Dunes. I've played all of the top 60 and I would rank TRC in the top 30.

    Was fortunate enough to play here at a member guest competition on a glorious day in June. Course was in fantastic condition but with brutal rough - apparently in order to raise the slope rating for the USGA. Not true links but links like enough in ground undulation, quality and tight lies to play in that style. Not sure why there is a cross against dress code as golf attire was fine throughout the superb clubhouse. A very enjoyable and fair test of golf there are many scenic holes and the new 10th is fantastic and up there with any of the new links I've played and keen on the heels of the Ailsa etc. Not snooty or over pampered (like Loch Lomond) it is such a shame that there are not more members / opportunities for 'regular' golfers to play. In spite of the USGA's slope antics I felt that this was a more stern test than Kingsbarns and definately of the calibre to hold a European Tour Event.
