Greenville Golfing Society:  An Overview

On October 6, 2002 sixteen friends gathered for the purpose of founding a new golf club... a club based on camaraderie, friendly competition and an interest in the true spirit of the game of golf. The Greenville Golfing Society was born.

The idea for the Greenville Golfing Society originated in Carnoustie, Scotland during a visit to the "auld sod." Four of our founding members discovered that many of the golf clubs which play over Scotland's seaside links don't actually own the courses they play. These clubs, they learned, were formed by groups of individuals for the sole purpose of socializing and sharing the game golf through friendly competition on their local courses.

Independent golf clubs, often called "societies," flourish throughout Scotland and are a cornerstone of the beginnings of the game. The Carnoustie Golf Club and Caledonia Golf Club, for example, are two of many clubs that play over the Carnoustie links.

In St Andrews, several independent clubs call the town's courses home. Among them are the St Andrews Golf Club and the world famous Royal & Ancient Golf Club.

While visiting the Crail Golfing Society, the seventh oldest golf club in the world, the decision to form an independent club back home was firmly set.

Following are a few of the benefits provided members of the Greenville Golfing Society:
