Golf in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is nice to visit for a city trip while combining it with golf. The best golf courses in Edinburgh are Braid Hills Golf Course, Royal Burgess Golfing Society, Murrayfield Golf Club, Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society and Mortonhall Golf Club. The Royal Burgess - founded in 1735 - is widely recognised as one of the oldest golf clubs in the world and definitely the oldest in Edinburgh. The current Championship Course is designed by the legendary Willie Park Jr and is an excellent example of parkland golf. Edinburgh rises from the wide Firth of Forth to a high, rocky pinnacle crowned by the stone walls and towers of Edinburgh Castle. When visiting Edinburgh a visit to Edinburgh Castle is a no-brainer. Walk the Royal Mile, climb to Arthur's Seat and the Salisbury Crags or just visit the many pubs in Edinburgh. Flights to Edinburgh come into Edinburgh Airport, which lies to the west of the city and which is the busiest airport in Scotland. Transport links from the airport into the city are frequent, easy and fast. Buses to the city centre run 24 hours a day, trams run seven days a week, from early morning until late in the evening and take about 40 minutes.

Grata sorpresa. Visitamos el club en nuestro día de llegada y pudimos jugar el campo. El servicio es excelente y el campo está muy bien mantenido. Se encuentra justo al lado del aeropuerto de Edimburgo.

Braid Hills Golf Course
Wat een prachtige locatie voor deze baan in de heuvels rond Edinburgh. Geen lange baan, maar wel heuvelachtig. Zolang je uit de struiken blijft, is deze openbare baan goed te spelen en interessant! En voor slechts 25 pond is de greenfee wel heel aantrekkelijk!
