What the club says: Braid Hills is a historic gem of a golf course, commanding unrivalled panoramic views across the capital. The course offers something for all golfers: a beautiful walk, with unforgettable views to the Castle, Arthurs Seat, North Berwick Law and over the Forth to Fife; a fun challenge with a variety of holes using the natural contours and native gorse bushes to shape the course; and a chance to play on a historic course that was a testing ground for James Braid and Tommy Armour. Braid Hills is a Par 71 that will test the experienced golfer, and give golfers of all abilities a memorable round.

Edinburgh municipal gem.

You get great views of Edinburgh from a lot of the holes. According to the scorecard it's not a long course but if there is any wind it feels a lot longer. Some very entertaining holes that make you think and give you options to play them in different ways.

Mediocre

For a municipal course, it's good. Decent value. Some silly holes though.

Very scenic, tight course

Really enjoyed this round in the sunshine, a bit breezy, but under four hours on a Saturday morning so not too bad. A pretty course, greens very good but fairways were parched. A little confusing sometimes where you are heading and lots of blind shots. Worth the weekend fee of £26 I thought.

Tough test on a quality hilly course.

A real test of golf and stamina with stunning views of Edinburgh city. Significant changes of elevation mean several greens are hidden on approach. Expect to lose golf balls!
