The Renaissance Club Experience.

Here at The Renaissance Club we have drawn on the experience of our staff and both local and traveling golfers alike, to refine the Scottish golfing experience. 

Our advantage to building our clubhouse 4 years after we opened is being able to include facilities that we know will be used. The design includes various ideas that we researched both in Scotland and from other parts of the world. We believe this new building provides the crowning touch to “The Renaissance Experience”.

The Renaissance Club was founded on respect for the traditions of the game. Tom Doak was hired to create a world-class course with regard to his renowned ability to move very little earth; showcasing the natural features of an incredible property such as Renaissance.

Our greens crew hails from the local area and brings vast experience of links turf. The condition of the course is paramount and has already resulted in the Renaissance Club being approached with regard to hosting major international tournaments. At over 7300 yards, par 71, the back tees are not for the fainthearted. Fear not as the variety of tees (7300 – 5500 yards) allows members to mix and match teeing grounds on a hole-by-hole basis, usually dependent on the wind!

The club is also home to a fantastic practice area. At 400 yards long, stocked with Titleist Pro V1 balls and sheltered in the trees, our range gives you the opportunity to hone your game with our highly trained professional staff. In keeping with the family ethos we run children’s camps, regular ladies mornings and of course one on one lesson options. 

The Renaissance Club (TRC) nestles on 300 acres of the famous golfing coastline of the Firth of Forth.

Immediately adjacent to the west of TRC is the world famous Muirfield golf course owned by the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (HCEG). To the east are 36 holes of golf known as Archerfield Links designed by European Senior Tour professional David J. Russell. Slightly further east is another world-renowned golf course named North Berwick West Links.

At one time TRC made up a portion of the 1000 acres of Archerfield Estate, a famous and historic property that includes an old manor home from the 17th century. The club is the only portion of the estate that still remains on the natural windswept dunes common to the links terrain along this coastline.

The estate is of great historic interest to Scotland, and this is why its restoration was a prerequisite in the planning approvals for The Renaissance Club. The area is also considered a “green belt” zone along the coast, normally prohibited from development. Renaissance received its development approvals and exceptions for golf and lodging to help it fund the improvements and restoration to the original designed landscape of the estate.
