Owner description: One of several challenging golf courses designed by James Braid.

Don't expect anything fancy here which is part of its charm. Our family of 8 (4 couples) went here yesterday. Three of the men golfed. The women walked along with the golfers (at no charge). It was uncrowded and unhurried. The dress requirements were not stringent. The price for 18 holes and rental of clubs was reasonable. The golf course is beautiful. It has a mixture of links style holes and what we are used to at other courses. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful. Our one son-in-law stayed at the course shop in the lounge reading as he wasn't feeling well. He was expecting a little nicer "club house". There were snacks available. Beautiful views from the golf course. The rough is pretty tough--bring extra balls. Evidently there is a "wee nine hole" golf course that we didn't know about until after we had started. No golf carts available. This is a walking golf course. We used pull carts.

Asked a guy in a golf shop in Edinburgh and he said it's just a public course. But this place ticks plenty of boxes, low fees, great holes, fantastic scenery, good condition generally. The only pity is that no-one seems to want to fix their divots. I had a great time and value for money this is the best I've had.

Quite a unique course with plenty of challenges despite being relatively short.

The course was in great condition despite it being very dry.

Pack plenty of balls if you are wayward.

Amazing views of the city too.

Staff at reception were extremely friendly and given the price (we paid £33 for a 2 ball) this was a great little course in very good condition. Holes were interesting but the steep inclines and declines from tee to green made club selection very difficult. Some beautiful panoramic views of the city along the way also. I would definitely recommend this course to others
