For those joining the Club with a spouse that is also keen to travel, our collection of Couples Events provides a great opportunity to make wonderful new friends and share the finest experiences golf has to offer. We make a particular effort to cater to non-playing wives, creating experiences that are designed for couples and the format of the events reflects this.
Spouses are encouraged to attend events throughout the year, from the Founders Cup in St. Andrews, to our U.S City Events such as Palm Beach or Las Vegas. We also have events especially catered to couples with our European Couples Classic in the summer and our Couples Cup in the fall. Our couples events have visited some exceptional locations and provide idyllic retreats while enjoying a few great days of golf at top locations.
Couples Classics (e.g. Founders Cup / Club Championship).
Golf & Wine (e.g. Napa Valley, France and Italy).

Couples Golf is on the up! By Steve Harrison
If your kids have flown the nest, you and your wife (partner) love golf and you both like to travel, allow me to let you in on a well-kept secret. You’re not alone. In fact there are hundreds of couples just like you travelling the world to a host of exotic locations each year under the wings of a high end private members club called The Eden Club – see www.theedenclub.com
Couples golf is on the rise and as more and more couples reach that stage where they have time to relax and enjoy themselves, what better way than to travel the world with like-minded couples from other fine clubs all around the world? Each year The Eden Club stages a variety of international events ranging from Cruises, European Invitational’s held in Europe’s most desired locations like Sardinia, Tuscany, Paris, Sotogrande and St Tropez, Couples Cups held in the fall in the Caribbean plus the Club’s extravaganza The Founders Cup where you play the Old Course, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns under competition and some of golf’s finest social gatherings at the super luxurious Pittormie Castle, the Clubs home.
The Couples events are only one part of the Club said Steve Lister an international investor based in Toronto, but my wife and I love them and we do as many as four or five a year. We have met some amazing people who have now become great friends and we really look forward to them. Dino Rossi another Toronto based business man added although my wife doesn’t play golf she still loves to attend the events. They arrange lots of things for her and other ladies to do during the day and she joins in the fun like everyone else after golf. They really are amazing, every last thing is taken care of, you're treated like royalty and you're with people that just want to have a good time!
David Brining a Bermuda based insurance executive contributed over the past few years we have played outstanding private courses and been entertained thoroughly by fascinating people from all over the world. The social side of The Eden Club is unlike any other golf club in the world – what other club really caters to couples?? You can’t compare it to travelling on your own as most likely you wouldn’t bother making the arrangements. But the beauty is everyone is made to feel part of the group from the very first minute you arrive.
“The Couples side of the Club has grown and grown over the last few years” said Tom Lawrence, Chairman of The Eden Club. “There are a large number of people out there that like to take a few trips each year and enjoy life. They’ve been successful, they’ve worked hard and it’s time to take their place with friends and loved ones having a good time. You join a local club for the same reasons. This is exactly the same but the focus is national and international. Everyone already belongs to a fine private club somewhere in the world, so the participants are an attractive group to be with. It’s not like just visiting a resort on your own or with another couple. It’s much more sophisticated”.
