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

Been likened to Augusta in terms of clever use of elevation and undulating to add to holes not make them better not just hilly. Arguably the best course in the area.

One of those "must play" courses in Edinburgh

A surprisingly great club for a small mill village on the edge of Edinburgh. Friendly with a modern clubhouse and full of initiatives to move the club forward make it a pleasant environment to play a round and relax. Good practice area allows for warm up before play and when you get to the course it keeps pace with the club including a short children's tee for early teens and younger. At around 6,000 yards it does not seem too onerous a course for the mid-handicapper, yet given uphill slopes and a prevailing wind this is more a 6,600 Yd level layout with enough of a test for scratch players while allowing a little slack for new players. Turf was in good order, Greens running true and moderately quick.

Lovely Course. Challenging contours on the fairways and greens. Course in excellent condition given the heavy rain of recent days.

(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

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!
