6 Priestfield Road North, Edinburgh, Midlothian, EH16 5HS
Set in beautiful parkland in the heart of Scotland's capital city, a mere one and a half miles from the bustle of Princes Street. The 18-hole course is a testing par 70 of 6207 yards whose two par 5s are very long but its par 3 is quite short by today's standards. The character lies in the amount of long testing par 4's that can vary greatly depending on wind direction and strength. Prestonfield's reputation of being a challenging but fair course has made it a popular venue for a number of competitions including the prestigious Lothians Match Play Championship on six occasions. Open from dawn 'til dusk. Visitors welcome. Prestonfield has excellent club house facilities and bar, full catering facilities for societies, outings, company days etc. We have an excellent reputation for our Clubgolf programme and through this we have a coached well over 100 boys and girls, with most taking up our very reasonable membership offer.

Portobello Golf Course

Stanely Street, Edinburgh, EH15 1JJ
: 0131 669 4361

With Arthur's Seat as an attractive backdrop this nine hole parkland course is a beautifully prepared and forgiving course. It plays to its 2566 yards par 32, and the small tight greens make for accurate approach shots. The signature hole is the long par 3 9th. This 177 yard hole requires a straight long iron, avoiding the bunkers at 150 yards, and plays up to a sloping green making it a great hole to finish on.
