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!

The braids is a great course with a number of challenging holes. Don't be afraid of the hill walking as you will be rewarded with some fantastic views of Edinburgh

Excellent views over Edinburgh

Fairways and greens held up very well following overnight rain. Find the fairways or you're looking at dropped shots.

Great but very difficult course!

This plays like a links, with the dense bushes hiding any ball that finds it's way in. I played badly so it reflected on my score as I kept losing balls!

However the course itself is in very good condition (especially for a public course), it is steep at ?26 a round but if this was a private club it would be ?60-70 a round and it would still be worth it!

Very interesting layout with lots of ups and downs and some outstanding views!

Standard bearer of municipal courses in Edinbugh
Not for the faint hearted in places as it's pretty hilly but the panorama is worth it
Always well maintained
Give it a go and you'll know you've played a round of golf you won't forget in a hurry !
