Membership of either club will automatically entitle Members to have playing rights at the other Club free of charge.

The two clubs offer an entirely different golfing experience with Eyemouth Golf Club being a cliff top links course and Blyth Golf Club being a mature parkland course.

Mel Lockett, club captain at Eyemouth said: “With both the EGU and SGU announcing a significant drop in golf club membership in the last few years it is up to local golf club committees and management to find added benefits for their members.

“We at Eyemouth Golf Club welcome this agreement as a great opportunity and demonstrate to our members we are offering them something extra at no extra cost.”

John Hall, manager at Blyth Golf Club added: “Golf as an industry has suffered from the recession much the same way as many other industries have. At Blyth, we have adopted a number of initiatives during the recession in an effort to ensure the long term success of the Club. We also welcome this opportunity to partner with Eyemouth Golf Club. We feel sure that membership at both clubs, now offers excellent value for money.”

Eyemouth Golf Club was recently voted by ‘Freedom of the Fairways Golfers’ as ‘The Borders Friendliest Golf Club 2013′’ and the sixth hole, ‘A Still No Ken’, was voted ‘Britain’s No.1 Most Extraordinary Golf Hole’. The 13th, ‘The Hawkness’ monster’, at 656 yards off the back tee, is Scotland’s longest hole.
