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.

Not for me this one

This is an attractive course in a nice location but just didn't tick the boxes for me. The course is short and lot's of holes involved teeing across or over other fairways. The greens were extremely dry following the usually warm Scottish conditions and were so dry some of the greens were actually bare and grass-less. Needed some water badly. It's one I wanted to like following the shining reviews and the staff were very friendly, but from a golf perspective not one I'll be looking to play again and probably wouldn't satisfy the low handicappers.

SOME QUIRKY HOLES

Played the course with my wife and had a great experience. Course in superb condition, but 3 or 4 holes are a bit "quirky". Chatted with the Head Greenkeeper before we started and he gave us lots of advice. Filled rolls before we played and soup and toasties when we finished - excellent quality and value for money. Will definately play again, but make more use of my Garmin.

It really is a hidden gem

Played this course my with old man last week, after searching the west of Scotland for a good deal. We were sceptical at first as I had read some of the reviews and they were mixed. Having played a lot of courses in Scotland as we tend to try new courses each time we play I can’t honestly recommend this course highly enough. The first two holes really don’t do the rest of the course justice, but when you get past these you are in for a great round with magnificent greens and challenging holes. Receptionist and clubhouse members were very welcoming and offered a great insight regarding the course before we set out. I promise you minus the first two hole this is a course you will really enjoy.
