What the club says: Prestonfield Golf Club is set in beautiful parkland and is centrally located in Edinburgh. James Braid, one of the most famous names in golf, created the present layout. The course is a testing par 70 of 6207 yards whose two par 5s are very long but its par 3's quite short by today's standards. The character lies in the amount of long testing par 4's that can vary greatly depending on wind direction and strength.



Most Helpful Review

The greens were really good, the course was in superb condition for a parkland course and the clubhouse was exceptional. Not a lot else more to say about it to be honest.

Vinny B/ edinburgh rated 5 out of 5 - Nov 20 2015

Brilliant greens for November - I got three birdies and a few long par putt saves - fairways were firm - apparently new drainage put in two years back making this a 12 month course

Course is in good condition considering the poor start to summer. Good variety of holes in a lovely setting. Bunkers need attending, some brick hard others plenty sand.

AndyB Edinburgh rated 5 out of 5 - Feb 6 2014

Great course in the centre of Edinburgh with spectacular views of Arthurs Seat. Course condition is excellent, in particular the greens. Very handy if you are staying in town and fancy a quick round - course is quite flat but a good challenge. Clubhouse and facilities are modern and the food was excellent.

Anyone playing Prestonfield for the first time will just be blown away by the spectacular views on Arthur Seat. The club has invested heavily improving drainage over the years to the extent that it is very rarely troubled by flooding any more. It is a very challenging layout and if you get the chance to play off the medal tees you need to be on top of your game.

Aileen Hunter rated 5 out of 5 - Jan 25 2014

If you are in Edinburgh this course is so close to the city centre it's well worth a visit. The views around the course and from the club balcony are stunning. The course is extremely pleasant to play, with a number of goof holes, especially the 3rd which is a very challenging dog-leg. The par 3s are deceptively difficult and all well bunkered.

Very respectable golf club - lovely setting / location and club house. half of the course is top notch while half is perhaps a little bland being flat parkland and can get boggy after heavy rain. Otherwise a course well suited to a wide range of golfers and that most will very much enjoy.

the course is very boring and to flat and well over rated. When it rains the course is absolutely shocking for holding water and floods easily,it is over priced and just paying for the location. many better course in edinburgh to play.

Graham H rated 4 out of 5 - Aug 8 2012

A good course with a variety of challenges. The rather flat middle section is bland, yet helps the higher handicap player improve his game. Some terrific old trees add great character closer to the old club house. Location in central Edinburgh and welcoming attitude to visitors is excellent. Only concern would be that the course can suffer from water logging.

very scenic course with the dramatic backdrop of Arthur's Seat, the course had suffered from the poor weather and as a result had some standing water on the fairways, however that aside this is a really good course, the greens a really well bunkered and if you are shooting well you can score well and be very satisfied with your game, if you are not playing well you can be penalized but you can recover. we will be back to play this course again.
