Gifford Golf Club
Golf World has called Gifford Golf Club "the best nine holes in Scotland." The East Lothian village of Gifford, half-an-hour from Edinburgh, features this parkland golf course with a view of the Lammermuir Hills. The course is suitable for new-to-the-game golfers as well as those with low handicaps.
Gifford Golf Club management recommends a maximum hour and 45 minutes to play nine holes - a 2,957-yard, par-35 run out, and 3,093-yard par-36 coming back. The par-5 ninth hole is a 473-yard doozie.
Course trivia: Gifford Golf Club began in 1904, when golfing Lord Tweeddale leased 50 acres of his family estate for a 5 pounds a year - "for the whole right and privilege of playing golf."

Great days golf
Staff very helpful and pace of play was great, no issues with playing holes twice for 18 holes. Missed the 9th tee as shared with 18th so played the 18th then noticed where the 9th was on 2nd circuit so played that last.
Course in excellent condition and greens a good test. Good course for both beginners and for the low handicaps.
Will be looking to play again soon
