Bass Rock Golf and Country Club was founded in 1873 and is named after the formidable landmark of the Bass Rock Island which lies three miles off north Berwick in the estuary of the Firth of Forth. The Bass Rock Golf Club has 100 members and was originally an artisan club, but the membership is now drawn from all walks of life, including a junior section. Although the club does not own a clubhouse, they prefer to offer their membership the benefit of an organised golf club at a realistic subscription, plus an annual green fee, and the friendship and camaraderie of a modern club. The medal competitions are played over the West Links at North Berwick from April to October. For over 70 yeas the Bass Rock Golf Club have been responsible for organising the famous Esmond Trophy , the most prestigious open competition in the East Lothian county.
The club is proud of the part their members have played in the history of golf, including James H Hutchinson, Andrew Basset and Charlie Thomson. Also Fred McLeod US open Champion, Scottish Internationalist Robert B Denholm and many of the early pioneers who took golf to all corners of the world.
