What the club says: The course was initially laid out by Willie Park Jnr., a two-times Open Champion, and later reconstructed by James Braid. As a result Baberton is a challenging and beautiful layout on undulating terrain

Fantastic course in Edinburgh

Wonderful James Braid course with fantastic views of the Castle and the 3 Forth bridges that complement the layout of the course.

(Round played: Feb 2017 - Score: 92 Handicap: 18.6). Ground undergoing major change and holes re-ordered. A friendly club and good support from members. A couple of winter greens, to be expected in February.

Great course. fairly long with some blind holes so the second time of playing should see scores come down.

A long course with some blind holes, would benefit from playing the course again now I know it, some challenging holes but is forgiving through most of it off the tee

Been a member here for three years and would thoroughly recommend the friendly club and challenging, but equally very rewarding, course.

Played as annual corporate golf day - very friendly clubhouse, recently built. Course is a challenge, but fair with good greens.

Baberton is well worth a visit. Unfortunately when our group played the greens had just been cored and sanded, so putting was a bit hit or miss. The course is currently going through a lot of change (October 2013) with some temporary tees and a temporary green on the 18th fairway. Despite this it was a most enjoyable experience. A new clubhouse has been built and the food served was top quality. Pleanty of parking spaces.

Can be very windy on opening holes. A course to be managed, use driver sparingly.
Greens are some of the best I've played and with the new layout starting to come together with the new club house I think this course will be well up there in the not too distant future!
