Ross Priory Club Membership
At the core of all that we do, Ross Priory is first and foremost a MEMBERS' CLUB. As such, members have the privilege of enjoying all that this wonderful and unique estate has to offer 7 days a week, without advance notice or prior arrangement.
Membership is open to all current and former members of University of Strathclyde staff and to graduates of the University (including those who qualified from the former Jordanhill College, which later became part of the University) as well as members of the local parish of Kilmaronock and members of Glasgow & Strathclyde Universities' Staff Golf Club (G&SUSGC) For more details on eligibility, please take a look at the Constitution & Bye-Laws or contact us directly.
"My husband and I have been members for a few years now. We live about 40 miles away and love to visit Ross Priory for a bar lunch as often as we possibly can and enjoy an overnight stay when friends visit from further afield. The scenery and gardens are stunning and we're keen birdwatchers too, so with eth RSPB hub right on the doorstep so to speak, we really can't get enough...
I qualified as a primary teacher from Jordanhill College in the 1960s and didn't realise I was eligible to become a Ross Priory member until a friend told me that we could, so that was a real bonus for me and my family - my son even got married at Ross Priory!" Pauline B. (graduate)
As a Club Member, we welcome you to use the Bar/Lounge facilities and grounds at your leisure. With complimentary Wi-Fi and daily newspapers for our Club Members, you can enjoy a coffee or a bar meal while enjoying the view and hospitality. There is also free car parking (car park adjacent to the house) for our Club Members and guests to use, with disabled access via the courtyard if required. You can take a walk in the extensive gardens, even bring your dog if you have one, explore the stunning walled garden or have a picnic at the lochshore where benches are provided or even hire a barbecue. All perfect for family fun.
See our Did You Know? for more information on what is available to you.
Ross Priory Club Membership also offers a range of benefits including:
- discounts on pre-booked meals, bar drinks, snacks and bar meals
- discounts on accommodation for members and members' guests in our 11 bedrooms or self-catering cottage
- discounts on golf day tickets, fishing permits
- discounts on barbecue hire
- special promotional offers
- exclusive prize draw events
- invitations to exclusive member events and activities
Associate Membership is also available to up to two people closely associated to an Ordinary, Graduate or Honorary Member or to a former member of University permanent staff who is an Ordinary or Associate Member of Ross Priory Club. Associate membership is ideal for a relative, so they too can make use of the facilities and benefits independently.
Note: we welcome pre-booked events from non-members, as many clubs do, such as meals in the Dining Room or overnight accommodation, but we are not open to the public on a day to day basis and visitors are not eligible for the above member benefits.
The annual subscription for the 2020/21 club year is as follows:
- Ordinary, Graduate, Local Parish and G&SUSGC members: £132 per annum
- Associate Members: £79 per annum per person
The club year runs from 1 April. Become a member by completing a Ross Priory Membership Application Form.
"We have very happy memories at the Priory as a family. My children have grown up as regular visitors and, from an early age, have enjoyed the play park and various family-friendly events including treasure hunts and fireworks. I also remember vividly my friend's reaction when visiting from the USA and being blown away by the location. Rick, who had previously run the Senior PGA Locker Room, was absolutely over the moon to have a game of golf on the banks of Loch Lomond, and raves about his visit even now, some 18 years on. So, if you are looking for somewhere to get away from the buzz of the city...then I don't believe you could go wrong by paying a visit to Ross Priory." Kathryn H. (staff)
