Broomieknowe Golf Club, six miles outside Edinburgh, features a well-aged parkland course in top shape. It's an easily walked golf course, the product of legendary course designers Ben Sayers and James Braid, with the first creating the layout and the second extending it.

Broomieknowe Golf Club's course - 6,172 yards, with a standard-scratch score and par of 70 each - offers a great golfing challenge. A round of golf kicks off on Fairway, as the first hole is called, a gentle 316-yard par 4 that requires a straight shot clear of the trees on both sides and then a short iron to hit the green. Battle your way through Mary's Dyke, the Cockpen, Robin's Nest and 13 other holes. You'll reach Knowesend, a 318-yard par 4, where you'll need to tee-off nicely to clear the gap in the trees (they grow, so visit when they're short or wait until they become even more of a challenge). From there, hit a short iron to a green bunkered on the left and right.

After your round at the Broomieknowe Golf Club, hit up the lounge for an informal atmosphere, quality food and its variety of beers.

The staff, inparticular the pro, were very friendly. The course was in good condition and I found the greens to be very fast for an inland course.
Very generous food portions too !
An excellent day, I would recommend you go and play here.
Well done Broomieknowe.

Wee gem of a course

My son and I played twice in the last week as we are moving to the area next month and looking to relocate clubs. Warm welcome from the Pro Mark. Super course, not a long but well laid out. Whilst most holes are avenued with trees, with little rough beneath them it can be quite forgiving. Fairways and greens in great condition. Clubhouse staff and members very welcoming. Looks like they will have 2 new members from next month.

Well maintained but very “samey-samey”

I enjoyed the round, the members seemed friendly, and the course was kept well and looked very nice. The greens were in very good condition and fast.
The only sticking point for me was the hole layouts. There really wasn’t much difference between holes. The course is very flat and with no features, meaning most holes looked and felt the same. There are no particularly memorable holes and with no par 5s if you are a good player it’s a driver and wedge most holes. It has a very lazy Sunday afternoon feel, and good course for potential birdies.
In summary it’s a pleasant course, easy going if you hit a straight ball, but lacks any real character.

Some fairways are fairly close together
There are a lot of trees on the course and some fairways fairly narrow
Distance markers would be helpful

A very nice well presented course with more than its share of dog legs.

Play on the day was very slow but the course was very enjoyable and well worth the money

A wonderful golf experience

Broomieknowe Golf Club was a great golf experience...and a great value. It is about a 40 minute drive from where we stayed in downtown Edinburgh. This was the first course we played in Scotland and my wife and I really enjoyed it. This 112 year old course is in excellent condition, the Greens are fast, with subtle breaks. At first glance, we thought it would be an easy round as the course looks very flat with tree lined fairways. As a 66 year old, I don't hit long, but generally straight. I played from the tips. As one plays through the course, the golfer discovers terrain variations and long par 4s which made bogey look good.

This course is not a championship course, but that is not what we were looking for. We found a wonderful walkable course, with trolley, that was extremely enjoyable. The staff and members were great. The clubhouse is pretty basic, but the bar and restaurant are warm and cozy, full of old trophies and other memorabilia.The kitchen opened up a bit early for us and provided a great little breakfast. Members were curious about us and we had great conversations. The only down side was there were few amenities on the course. No water, few ball washers and no bathrooms that we could see - my wife had to find the bushes off the ninth fairway. Still, this was a great first time golf experience in Scot

Extremely friendly members and staff. We were welcomed to the club by the Captain. The course was in good condition.
We finished our round at about 2.40pm hoping for lunch, but the kitchen closed at 2.30pm. This was our only disappointment. Otherwise a fine club.
