Europe, Scotland


With world-renowned courses, this destination is truly a wonderful setting for a game of golf

Edinburgh leaves you spoilt for choice when it comes to golf, with an amazing selection of courses that allow you to make the most of the natural contours of the land while enjoying some testing holes at the same time.

With the capital city of Edinburgh the base for your golfing trip this picturesque part of the home of golf is, unsurprisingly, a haven for golfers worldwide and closer to home. There is a fine mix of courses throughout the region, with everything from traditional, testing links to plush parklands and crafty, little nine holers.

Braid Hills is a historic gem of a golf course, commanding unrivalled panoramic views across the capital. The course offers something for all golfers: a beautiful walk, with unforgettable views to the Castle, Arthurs Seat, North Berwick Law and over the Forth to Fife; a fun challenge with a variety of holes using the natural contours and native gorse bushes to shape the course; and a chance to play on a historic course that was a testing ground for James Braid and Tommy Armour. Braid Hills is a Par 71 that will test the experienced golfer, and give golfers of all abilities a memorable round.
