Founded in 2007, MGC is based at the Marine Laboratory in Aberdeen, and our home course is Balnagask (since it is right next door).  We are fully affiliated with Scottish Golf (SG) and issue official handicaps.  

Our current annual fee is £20.  This provides:

1.      An official CONGU-registered handicap, registered through the SGU’s Central Database of Handicaps (CDH) and recognised worldwide (

2.      Participation in two season-long competitions, the Matchplay Cup and the Stableford League.  We also organise a number of golf outings through the year.

3.      The opportunity to play in SG’s handicap club tournaments ( In recent years, we have enjoyed excellent rounds at prestigious courses such as Cruden Bay, Moray Old Course, Deeside, The Duke’s in St Andrews, and Royal Aberdeen.

4.      The Scottish Golf Membership Card, which confers many additional benefits – for example, many clubs in Scotland offer discounted rounds for Card holders (see for the current offers).  Further details of the Card can be found at
