Braid Hills Golf Course

Braid Hills is a historic gem of a golf course that was a testing ground for iconic golfing figures such as James Braid and Tommy Armour. 

With outstanding views to the Pentland Hills and the panorama across Edinburgh’s skyline to the Firth of Forth, the natural contours and native gorse bushes shape the course and will give golfers of all abilities a memorable round - and provide a challenge for the more experienced.
