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

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

Mark G rated 4 out of 5 - Mar 24 2017

(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.
