Scotscraig celebrates 200 years with new membership categories

Scotscraig Golf Club, the world’s 13th oldest golf club, has revamped its membership categories to encourage younger players and greater family participation in what the club is calling one of its most significant changes ever.  

General Manager Derek McKenzie said the membership changes include more offerings that better align with what customers want.

GolfBC, Western Canada’s largest golf ownership group, is redefining itself.

GolfBC was founded as an owner/operator, and since 1989 it’s assembled a portfolio that now consists of six well-regarded daily-fee and semiprivate venues in British Columbia plus a world-famous resort in Hawaii.

The family-owned, Vancouver -based company sold Furry Creek Golf and Country Club in October, which included development land surrounding the golf course. GolfBC is now evaluating third-party management opportunities.
