Niddry Castle Golf Club
Niddry Castle Golf Club offers 18 holes of par-70 golf over 5,914 yards, providing a good course for all levels and ability of player. Magnificent vistas provide a glimpse of the Pentland Hills, and the holes all offer their own unique tests and hazards - plus there's a castle smack-dab in the middle. If you can control your shots and manage a solid golf course, then this patch of parkland ought to be on your itinerary for any golf trip to Scotland.
Fire away at Cannons Drive, the Niddry Castle Golf Club's 198-yard par-3 first hole, featuring a green that slopes away. The long hole is the sixth, Castle View, a par-5 524-yarder - pick right or left of the fairway at the tee to avoid sticking yourself behind a large tree for the second shot. Gan Hame, the 18th hole, a par 4 that measures 404 yards, provides a superb finishing hole, with an elevated tee shot to a fairway that features trees on both sides.
If you're going in winter, when the club sees fewer players, Niddry Castle Golf Club offers golf-and-coffee specials.

Worst course I have ever played
Terrible course layout was ducking golf balls right, left & centre as holes overlap each other so people from other tees drive over you when on green. greens where really poor condition & slow. Didn’t enjoy it at all
Due to the current climate I can comment on the facilities in side.
The course was ok but we had two guys who were in front of us who were holding everything up they were actually two places in front of us but let the guys in front of us play through but never let us through. Sometimes we were waiting 5 to 10 minutes on the tee
Interesting golf course
A very nice golf course with some very interesting holes. A couple of blind tee shots and some blind second or third shots which if you havn't played the course ( like me) gets you scratching your head wondering what too hit. I really enjoyed the course. Some good views,well maintained and nice greens. I will definitely play this course again and hopefully with knowing the layout, next time i will shot a bit lower.

Course layout is questionable, too many cross over holes and blind holes. The 5th and 6th share a fairway with a tee at either side, so basically hitting a tee shot to oncoming players which is ridiculous. The 2nd hole is blind over a hill and you would have no chance of knowing where the green is or who is on the other side.
There are 2 holes where you are required to walk back down the fairway you have just played, to get to the next tee. Causes hold up on players behind you and is also dangerous if the players do hit there shots, which was the case today.
Very dangerous course to play on especially when busy, wouldn’t recommend playing it again.
Positive note was the greens were in a good condition.
Ideal for a good day out
Challenging course with varied holes, quick a few blind tee-offs but some wide and open holes as well, good variety.
Would definitely play again.
Calm despite the storm
After a horrendous storm the night before we were looking for a course that was open. These guys were open and the course had held up brilliantly in 90% of the play.
Lots of different and varied holes - many different challenges and enjoyable. The pace was superb, but we did play mid week. Not sure I’d like the course so much if it was busier, as lots of tight fairways.
Value for money was very good and I’ll definitely be back to play again.
Has it all
This course offers you everything you want in a game of golf.
The views are absolutely stunning, the course lay out may not suit most but I have no problem with the odd cross fairway.
Some gorgeous tee boxes and as for the greens they are fantastic, the staff have done an outstanding job, definitely worth checking it out.
Played first time last year and I have since become a member.
Would play here again
Course was in great condition, fast greens, good rough. Some really tricky holes.
Would highly recommend
Niddry Castle is a decent course and well maintained. There are a few holes where you have to walk back on yourself to get to the next tee 16th/17th holes in particular.
Worth another go
First time playing Niddry Castle and very impressed overall. Lovely looking course which has been well looked after. Greens in good condition (albeit some were pretty frosty as we were out early).
Some fantastic looking holes and whilst short, is challenging enough for a mid to high handicapper. Think I will be leaving the driver at home next time as this is definitely a plotters course.
Tee boxes were not the greatest and finding your way to them was challenging at times. Not a fan of having to share fairways (only a couple) or hit over greens so glad it was quiet.
Will be back in the summer for sure and have recommended to the society for an outing.
First time at the castle
Layout was a little confusing for the first couple of holes
Back 9 a lot more straight forward.
we are not amused
when we arrived were informed 3 winter greens rest full greens, clubhouse would shut at 3pm. As it turned out 18 winter greens and tees. Came back in at 1.30 changed shoes and went in to clubhouse for drink and snack only to be told it was closed nothing available.
Great course layout and each hole looks completely different so an exciting challenge. Will be back - 5 stars
