Fantastic reviews, but unknown by the public. Be the first to discover these hidden gems.
Played here for over 35 years. Course changes make it a challenging course, if you hit the ball straight of the tee. Trees come in to play if you don’t. Course harder than it looks. Fantastic place which I love. Definitely worth a look. You will be back to play again for sure.
First three holes are all uphill so hard work. But then it’s plain sailing for a few holes. Great scenery over Edinburgh. The course is in pretty good condition considering the wet weather, and mats for playing off the fairways are now mandatory. Clubhouse staff are always very welcoming and I had the best ever haddock, chips and peas for lunch.
Despite the onset of wintery conditions the course is extremely well maintained throughout giving a really enjoyable playing experience (apart from the odd stray ball into the gorse!). On top of this are the most stunning views over Edinburgh, the Forth Valley and right down the East Coast.
Wee Braids is a municipal Edinburgh 9 hole course with some nice holes and magnificent views across Edinburgh and over the Firth ion Forth to Fife. It’s a tricky test and a fun course to play. It’s let down by the poor facilities - parking is a joke and the clubhouse is a hut. But at £14 per round, you get what you pays for!
Murrayfield is slap bang in the centre of Edinburgh and yet it feels like you’re out in the countryside. The views are fabulous. It was rather wet when I played but the course holds up well and remained very playable. The 10th hole is dramatic and great fun - a good length par three dropping dramatically to the green below.
This is an 18 hole Edinburgh Council municipal course so don’t expect luxury or top notch green keeping. That said, the course is a good test - quite long and thankfully not many hills. The clubhouse is rather austere looking from the outside. The starter was welcoming and helpful. Great value as is all the municipal courses. Worth another outing in the spring.
I traveled from Suffolk to Edinburgh the first week in September 2020 for the Gents Open in my small motor home the club allowed me to stay over night on there car park so i was nice and refreshed for the competition next day there hospitality was first class in the welcoming, the course was in fantastic condition and the two gents that i played with were very good showin…
