What the club says: The course designed originally by Willie Park Jnr with later modifications by the world famous Dr Alister MacKenzie and James Braid provides a mature parkland layout with panoramic views over the Firth of Forth. Bruntsfield Links is only 3 miles from Edinburgh city centre and Airport and remains one of Scotland's most prestigious clubs.

Our club is constantly re-investing to improve the facilities and are spending £1million to improve bunkering and some of the weaker holes. Renowned golf course architects Mackenzie & Ebert are managing the project. Their past re-designs include Royal Portrush and Turnberry.

Best In Edinburgh

Course undergoing £1m upgrade with new bunkers while the existing bunkering and greens are also being improved. Additionally a new water hole par is nearly finished providing an amazing challenge. A real challenge and a pleasure to play. Highly recommend if playing in Scotland.

(Round played: Jun 2015 - Score: 98 Handicap: 23.7)One of the oldest courses in the world and a traditional parkland course (so not sure why it has Links in its name!). Quite forgiving fairways but in really good nick (an Open qualifier is due to be played here next week).
