Good but tough
Jun 2019 • Friends
Booked a round Friday morning and the course was empty - lovely day btw.
The course: the fairways run parallel with the slope of the hill, but there's plenty of climbing - the hike to the 12th is breathtaking , literally.
The course is very well maintained and the greens are true.
A lot of the par fours are long but there are good distance markers on the holes.
Good views over Edinburgh whilst you get your breath back and, whilst there aren't water hazards (maybe 2, ok) or dog legs, there is some thinking about approaching holes (wind, elevation, gorse).
So, all in all, a very good course to play (clubhouse looks nice too, but didn't go in) but just two easy points to correct
1 - the fourth is 400 yards + , uphill with a tight green surrounded by gorse . Stroke index 7?
2 - directions from the 12th green are essential, you could be wandering a long time . A board, sign, map on the card, anything.

Family dinner
Oct 2018 • Family
From the minute we arrived, We were made very welcome 4 adults & 2 children under the age of 2 . Meal was fantastic & good value for money & a male waiter was excellent in his mannerism with us & the two children. This was 25th October 5.30 booking , I'm disappointed I didn't get his name but please pass on to him how excellent he was . Many Thanks

Brassiere
Jul 2018 • Friends
Went for food in there brassiere after a 4 hour Round of golf on a hilly course.
Absolutely ravenous!!! Ordered steak pie, chips & veg. £12.50 so not exactly cheap as Swanston is in the pentland hills. Has to be the smallest portion of steak I have ever had. When asked if everything was ok? I mentioned the very small portion & was this normal? She mentioned that it’s normally old people who eat here. Absolutely no effort at all was made to improve on my portion.
Completely overpriced in my opinion and a pathetically small portion, will not be back!

Lovely Family Venie
Aug 2017 • Family
This is a regular place for us to dine as a family or with friends. The staff are always lovely and very kind and caring to our five year old. Lots to choose on the menu for all tastes - the fish and chips always being a favourite. Seating outside great on a sunny day or for dog walkers out on the hills.

First game at Swanson in a while..will be the last
May 2017 • Friends
First time playing in the new Swanson course and it's shockingly bad...terrible condition..awful greens and tee areas for what in the summer season should be top notch. The new layout is confusing..dont bother playing so many more better courses in Edinburgh

A surprising good course.
Sep 2016 • Friends
The course was in excellent condition late Sept. It was good to play a course with a good variety of holes with 6 par 3's with none them bland the 2 par 5's one plays into west other east, interesting when the wind blows.The last 6 holes are recent addition to the course different from the other holes.The club complex has also 9 hole par 3 and driven range.

TREMENDOUS DAY
Oct 2016 • Friends
Played here recently at the end of October and the course was in fantastic condition especially the greens. The staff in the Shop could not have been more helpful or flexible in re arranging our times
We also ate in their excellent Brasserie which served up delicious food
All in all a great day at very reasonable costs
Well worth a visit
