The Eden Club offers golfers and their families something unique. The Eden Club was established in 1997 and since then has gone from strength to strength – thanks to the blend of innovative services the club offers. Keen golfers of all levels of ability will find plenty of interest within The Eden Club Schedule of Events. These events include competitions that take place in some of the best-known locations in the golfing world. These events are keenly contested by members of The Eden Club and their guests. At the same time however, they offer a superb opportunity for socialising and meeting likeminded people.
Anther big draw of The Eden Club is its Secretariat Service. The Seven’s Privileges package offered by the club will be of interest to any golfer looking for a convenient way to sample some of the world’s most prestigious golfing venues. Under this package, members of The Eden Club get seven nights’ accommodation at any of the world’s greatest golf resorts or private golf clubs with accommodation. Members of The Eden Club also get seven complimentary rounds of golf each year under this package.
Key to the success of The Eden Club is the fact that members are able to enjoy the facilities on offer at Pittormie Castle. This former baronial home has a long and illustrious history. It was the ancient home of the Dukes of Fife – having been presented to Ludovic of Lennox at the end of the 16th Century. After having fallen into a state of considerable disrepair by the latter half of the 20th Century, The Eden Club undertook a full restoration programme in 2005 under the guidance of Historic Scotland. Members of The Eden Club are lucky to be able to use Pittormie as their club base.
The location of Pittormie Castle is also ideal. The Eden Club home is situated in the North East of what was traditionally referred to as the Kingdom of Fife. The Eden Club has an international membership base and Pittormie Castle is usefully located just a few minutes drive away from Leuchars private airbase. Dundee Airport is 15 minutes away and Edinburgh Airport can be reached within an hour. The Eden Club members can also make use of convenient rail links to Edinburgh and London. Most importantly, Pittormie Castle is located just a few minutes drive from the home of golf, St Andrews.
The membership of The Eden Club is truly international in flavour. This is because it is made of up existing members of private golf clubs from across the world. The Eden Club shares several of the characteristics of other fine golf clubs. For instance, prospective members undergo an interview before joining and membership is strictly by invitation. Prospective members can however, request further information about The Eden Club by completing the online form featured on The Eden Club website, www.theedenclub.com. Despite the exclusive nature of The Eden Club, there is no snobbishness. Rather, the club prides itself on its friendly and sociable outlook.
What sets The Eden Club apart from most other establishments is its innovative Secretariat Service. This provides members with the opportunity to sample what’s on offer from the world’s most prestigious golfing resorts. Members who sign up for the Seven’s Privileges package get to really make the most of this service. This annual package entitles the member to seven nights’ accommodation at any of the world’s finest golfing resorts in addition to seven complimentary rounds of golf at those resorts.
Another important factor that sets The Eden Club apart from other clubs is the sheer quality of its clubhouse. The home of The Eden Club is Pittormie Castle. Set in its own extensive yet secluded grounds, Pittormie Castle is one of the finest buildings in the Kingdom of Fife. For many years, Pittormie Castle was the home of the Dukes of Fife – having been gifted to Ludovic of Lennox in 1596. Unfortunately, the building had been allowed to fall into a state of decline until it was ‘rescued’ by The Eden Club. It underwent full renovation under the guidance of Historic Scotland and now represents the perfect blend of world-class facilities set within a stunning former baronial home.
Pittormie Castle boasts plenty of spaces that are perfect for enabling members of The Eden Club to unwind and/or entertain their guests. Anyone looking for a space to hold a champagne reception should find exactly what he or she is looking for in the drawing room. As a contrast, the whisky room offers members of The Eden Club a somewhat more intimate space. Members of The Eden Club are also spoiled for choice in terms of dining options. Eating areas include the Stag Room, Terrace and a magnificent Main Dining Room.
