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 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.

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 and bar meals
  • discounts on accommodation for members and members' guests
  • discounts on golf day tickets
  • discounts on 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.

Annual subscription

The annual subscription for the club year 2017/18 is as follows:

  • Ordinary, Graduate, Local Parish and G&SUSGC members: £129 per annum
  • Associate Members: £72 per annum per person

The club year runs from 1 April. Become a member by completing a Ross Priory Membership Application Form.

Golf at Ross Priory

Our golf course, complete with its spectacular views of Loch Lomond, is one of the facilities where a charge over and above the main subscription is made. Find out more about Golf at Ross Priory.
