The James Braid designed Prestonfield course is nestled below the stunning backdrop of Arthur’s seat in a former deer estate. With the imposing backdrop and mature trees, you would be forgiven for thinking the course was set in a country estate rather than only 1.5 miles from Edinburgh city centre. The views alone make Prestonfield a must visit, but the challenging 6200 yard course is also a gem. It is one of the longer in the city centre, yet is still a gentle walk with no severe gradients. Home to the PGA Prestonfield Pro Am since 2007 and also a regular fixture on the Lothians Golf Association and Scottish Ladies Golf Association calendar

We were here for a evening of Scottish music and dance....the whole show was wonderful. The supper was positively delicious and considering the size of the room the serving staff did an unbelievable job of looking after everyone in the room and there had to be 1500 people that night.

You can't beat the Prestonfield for value and convenience when visiting Edinburgh. Very well maintained golf course. Challenging but still fun.

I played Prestonfield essentially as a practice round before heading down to play Gullane No. 1 the next day. The course was affordable - 20quid for a twilight round - and I had fun. The best stretches of the course are along 2,3,4 and 14,15,16. 3 in particular is a magnificent par 5 down the hill and along the wall... More

Of course we had to golf in Scotland. This was somewhat a round of opportunity (lovely day, time in the schedule) so we googled a course near Edinburgh and there you go. Low-key atmosphere and simply a lovely time. First time walking a course and the rolling hills made it a nice little workout. Well done!

Just about a mile from city centre, at the roots of Arthur's Seat lies a beautiful golf course. It is easy walking open parkland, no water hazards but plenty of bunkers. Staff and members are friendly and you can even rent a set at a reasonable price.
