Historic park course (1735) which shows by the beautiful tree variation and age. Parkland course. Historic clubhouse with terrace overlooking the course. Greens in super state (actually everything was). No practice (only a swing net) but who really needs that? Would advise to go there.

Royal Burgess Course

18 holes

The Royal Burgess course - designed in 1895 by Tom Morris and later by Willie Park Jnr - is a real pleasure to play for golfers of all abilities. Situated in beautiful parkland, it is hard to imagine you are so close to the heart of Edinburgh. With fairways lined by trees, including some fine specimen varieties, the cleverly bunkered course will challenge and reward in equal measure. Accurate driving and a deft putting stroke on our exceptional greens are prerequisites for scoring well. Arguably the most picturesque hole is the 11th which is a 348 yard downhill par 4 dogleg over an open cundie crossed by a beautiful stone bridge. But The Royal Burgess is well known for long, challenging par 4s of which the 4th, 7th and 17th are fine examples.
