The par 71, 6446 yard layout was initially designed by Willie Park Jnr and later modified by Dr Alistair Mackenzie in 1921-22 - the architect of Augusta and Cypress Point. Set in stunning parkland, Bruntsfield has spectacular views over the Firth of Forth, Fife and beyond. The course is characterised by well placed bunkers, manicured and undulating fairways lined with mature trees and large greens angled away from the centre of the fairways, one of Mackenzie’s key design philosophies.
