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 6206 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.

Excellent hidden gem

Absolutely stunning course, very welcoming members and pro. Green fees and club hire very good value. Course in great condition and really was the highlight of my first trip to Scotland. Would love to return in summer months or on another trip to Edinburgh. Great value and stunning views.

A Good Club

Not the friendliest welcome, but that is unusual for this club which I have played at before. It is a good club and they have invested in drainage and reshaped some greens of late. It provides a consistent challenge while not too daunting for the high handicapper. Highlight holes - the dogleg 14th.

Great day out

Really enjoyed my round of golf on this course. Rumours about it being bad when wet but I disagree. Played after a few days of heavy rain and course was in fine condition.

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.

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.

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.
