    The Edinburgh course opened in 1990 designed by John Jacobs, Gary Player and Bernard Gallacher. Although the course is relatively new, it has already built itself a reputation as one of the Uk's best courses. The Edinburgh is capable of testing the very best players and able to give immense pleasure to the handicap golfer, consequently the Edinburgh course has generous forward tees, and greens large enough to make possible both difficult and easy pin placements.

    Tall and majestic pine trees line many of the fairways, and are frequently found standing sentry at the corners of the numerous doglegs. The Edinburgh course unlike its older siblings features wide fairways and large greens. This makes it a popular choice for golfers with higher handicaps. As the annual site of the British Masters Championship, however, Edinburgh can be stretched to over 7,300 yards from the championship markers.

    The course has woodland either side on most fairways which calls for straight hitting. However, the fairways are not so narrow as to inhibit the use of the driver, rather to encourage it. The Par 5's may encourage the big hitter to have a go for the green with the second shot but beware, strategically placed bunkers and dense woodland provide a sting in the tail to any errant drives.

    The overall balance of the course with its four 5's, four 3's and ten 4's is orthodox, and yet no two holes are alike. The Par 3's are mid-length, but differ greatly in character, the second bearing a striking resemblance to the twelfth at Augusta.

    The Par 4's have great variety and for the most part are extremely demanding with plenty of doglegs. The view down to the fourth green from the elevated fairway calls for a memorable and exciting second shot which has to be very precise in direction and distance. The 18th with its green set in a natural amphitheatre provides a brilliant finish to memorable round.
