The West Linton Golf Club features a solid 18-hole moorland golf course that sits on the Slipperfield Moor over West Linton, a Scottish conservation village. The golf course offers magnificent vistas of Scotland's borderland countryside, with the Mendick Hill dominating the sites southwest. Several premier golfers have taken strokes on this grass, among them the British Open and Masters champion Sandy Lyle, an honorary member.

Tee off at the West Linton Golf Club on Medwyn, a par-4 that measures 307 yards. Unpack your long game on Lucky Dip, the 525-yard par-5 fourth hole. When you're ready to go Home, as the 18th hole is appropriately called, you'll have three strokes to go 230 yards. Have lunch at the West Linton Golf Club's good-looking clubhouse, which also offers a good look at several of the holes you've just played.

I simply love this course. Tucked away off the beaten track, its a total delight. The fairways are lush, the greens, beautifully maintained, are a challenge but thats what they should be! This course should be on the radar of anyone wanting to experience a wonderful day's golf

Not a long journey from Edinburgh and lovely views.

Good but fair test of golf and suitable for all levels.

Relatively quiet on Friday afternoon.

Overall experience very enjoyable.

Taking into account playing in winter after a very wet spelll the course was in not bad condition. The course has been expanded over years and as a result is a little up and down in layout as extra holes squeezed in. None the less had interesting parts and some spectacular scenery close to pentland hills. We were welcomed by various staff. Will come back to play in summer time.

I have played this course before and found it very challenging. I had a great round with my friends James Patterson and Ian Hindley and despite the weather being a bit cold and the rain, which thankfully stayed away most of the time, we had a fantastic time and played well. The wind was a factor but not too much of a challenge.

I would not hesitate to recommend this course to anyone who wants a little bit of a challenge. My round was 101 total and less my handicap of 26, my final total was 75 for the round.

The night before there was about an inch or two of rain yet the course stood up great and was only puddled in a few spots. Greens were excellent for time of year. Staff and members were very friendly, letting our 2 ball play thru on 3 occasions. 18 holes at 1230 on a Saturday in 2 hours 45 mins was unbelievable!! I will definitely be back here soon...stunning!!!<br/> Steve from Gala.

I am a member of Borders Golf Club. West Linton is an excellent course and will test your game. Very picturesque with well laid out holes. The 17th and 18th finishing holes both Par 3s could be card wreckers.<br/> Once you have played the Bar facilities are excellent with pleasant and helpful staff.<br/> If you play on a Friday the Battered Fish is to kill for.<br/> An excellent and enjoyable round
