What the club says: Swanston is a member's club firstly but with modern golf and clubhouse facilities Unlike many golf clubs Swanston can truly say that it caters for all golfers from beginners to experienced. The 350 yard driving range, 2 putting greens, short-game area, 9-hole short-course plus the traditional 18-hole course all complement each other to cater for the modern golfer's needs. We also have 6 holiday cottages and a clubhouse Brasserie open to anyone 12 hours a day throughout the year.
"The Country Club In The City"
Footgolf is also available 11am-5pm Friday to Sunday on the land used by the Templar course and Driving Range

Enjoyable round

Played the course on an unusually warm day, lots of ball roll on the fairways.
The course was in good condition, the rough is kept short to make it easier for visitors. Despite being perched on the side of a hill there wasn't too many one leg shorter than the other shots, but bring a battery trolley if you can. The 6th hole is the showcase hole, superb views of Edinburgh, the Forth and Fife beyond.

The course seems to be a mixture of old holes, new holes, and holes tagged on from another course which meant the greens while were inconsistent in size, slope and roll to each other. My watch also did not have a clue which hole I was on. The old 1st hole is now the 13th. I think the now 1st used to be the 7th. Old holes 9 and 10 are now completely gone. There is a lack of signage to tell you where to go to the next hole, 2nd green to 3rd tee and 12th green to 13th tee in particular.

Post round we were told we couldn't sit outside for a drink as the bar closes at 4.30pm. it was 4.05pm. I did enjoy it but with so many other great courses nearby not sure I'd be rushing back.

A Tricky course

A very hilly course especially the first half commands respect with smallish greens and a wicked slope on most holes.

I've played Swanston on numerous occasions & have always found it a very good test of golf. The course is situated at the foot of the Pentland Hills, which as a result shapes how the course design & layout. It's a course that requires you to think your way round as opposed to simply employ the power game. Accuracy is the order of the day to score well.
The views across Edinburgh & the surrounding area are second to none.

The welcome from the team at Swanston is always warm & the hospitality in the Brasserie is fantastic.

Would recommend to anyone looking for golf in Edinburgh
Given the location at the Pentland Hills the views over Edinbu

Good facilities, poor course

Not impressed by the course. Nice clubhouse and range but the course on on the side of the pentlands so not great. New holes are flatter and better

Stunning golf course, incredible views and in great condition for November. My must play course when visiting Edinburgh, incredible contrasting sections of the course from up in the heather covered hills to down in the valley weaving in an out of the burns

Brought along my non golfing partner and she was made to feel so welcome & was even given a few putting tips and an impromptu welcome committee from the lady members out on the course! By far the most welcoming club I’ve ever played. The Pro, members out on the course everyone up in the stunning brasserie bar makes you feel really like they want you there.

Fantastic contemporary modern clubhouse, the construction of the new driving range and practice facilities are well underway and shaping up. nicely and £12 for 18 holes is a steal

Can’t wait to come back

Really nice golf course with some particularly striking par 3s. The front nine of the course stands with some really fun and interesting holes and the unique setting of being at the foot of the Pentlands. Greens and fairways were in great condition, bunkers really nice too.

There was a really friendly atmosphere on and off the course. Helpful and welcoming pro in the shop and friendly waiting staff made the visit very enjoyable! Definitely worth a visit!

Really enjoyed course. Your score is determined by accuracy not power. Sloping fairways and small contoured greens on holes not especially long make this the case. Views from course across edinburgh add to enjoyment. Played in March after days of heavy rain and course in amazing condition for that time of year.
