The city of Edinburgh has a good selection of quality courses with amazing views of the cityscape and surrounding hills. Braid Hills is a testing hill-top course from which you can see Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and on to the Pentland Hills and the Firth of Forth. It was designed by three times Open champion Bob Ferguson and Peter McEwan, a 19th century clubmaker from Musselburgh. Founded in 1761, Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society on the outskirts of Edinburgh is the fourth oldest in the world. This attractive parkland course offers a challenging game and has been a Regional Qualifying Venue for the Open.

East Lothian is blessed with a wide array of stunning and historic golf courses. Muirfield, which was the venue for The Open Championship in 2013, is just one of the many great golf courses on 'Scotland's Golf Coast'. Gullane boasts three fantastic golf courses, and will be hosting the 2015 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open from 9-12 July 2015. The Championship will be played over a composite of Course No. 1 and Course No. 2. Musselburgh has a long association with the game of golf and Archerfield Links Golf Club has two outstanding 18-hole courses: the Dirleton Links and the Fidra Links. The excellent links at Craigielaw Golf Club is home to the long established and internationally known Eric Grandison Golf School. For more information on playing in the area, check out some inspiring golf itineraries, and make savings with the East Lothian Golf Pass.
