A round at the Newbattle Golf Club kicks off on St. Davids, a par 4 that measures 363 yards and requires a tee shot toward the left of the fairway to set up an approach to the protected green. The chance for big hitters to open up their games comes on the 13th hole, Lucky Dip, a par 5 that measures 566 yards. The hole requires a second shot that gets you around the dogleg for a mid- or short-iron to the green. The final hole at the Newbattle Golf Club, Hame, is a par 4 that measures 354 yards and requires a straight shot to stay inbounds for a mid- or short-iron to the green.

Lovely greens and overall condition was top class. Very enjoyable course, not too punishing if you’re a little wayward. Plenty of variety on the holes. Very pleasant round.

This was an excellent course and very flat apart from the 17th (very hilly). Would recommend this coarse to high handicappers as there are wide fairways; Catering excellent.

Got to say that I nearly walked off the course before I even got onto the 1st Tee, was advised in the pro shop that we would be playing holes 1-5 then 13,14,11,12 then onto 7-10 followed by 15,16,17 and 18. Those looking closely will see that this is only 17 holes, the 6th was out of play and the 17th which to me is the best hole on the course was reduced to 2 par 3’s. also the 13th is another par 5 was playing as a par 3. If I had known all these issues when it came to book I would have gone elsewhere but possibly through no fault of the course we were not made aware until the money was taken and we turned up to play. It was busy and really wet underfoot but the burgers made up for it.

Played this course at the beginning of November, was very impressed with the quality of the course. Fairways and greens in excellent condition. 1 winter green in use and it was of good quality too.

Very good mix of holes with some tricky par 4s and some shorter holes.

Course could probably benefit from more signings directing between holes, especially going from 2nd to 3rd.

I played this course with a friend of mine, James Patterson, and we found the course to be in first class condition, the challenge of the par 5 and overall, although it was the first time we had played Newbattle golf course, we found it to be a great course. I would recommend this course to anyone who hasn't played there yet. Finished the round with an overall score of 113 and a nett score of 87. James finished with an overall score of 108 and a nett score of 86.

Fortunate to play on a hot Sunday afternoon and the course was in beautiful condition. A few really nice holes which have some really nice approach shots. The greens were fantastic too. Lots to think about which is good too (I found a fair few bunkers!). Highly recommended.

An enjoyable evening panting golf in Midlothian. Course is relatively easy and leaves room for eeeo when teeing off if you have a slice but not so much if you have a tendency to hook shots. Greens were in great condition and can be challenging at first. The par 5 14th par 4 17th and the par 3 15th are challenging holes but great.

The club shop was closed and unfortunately I couldn't purchase some much needed driving tees. Was able to get scorecard from clubhouse and use facilities.

I haven't played for many years here but I would go back at discounted price if 15 pound. Would I pay 30+, most likely not.

Thanks, Tony

We played at Newbattle on 12th Oct.There were 18 temporary greens and 3 or 4 plastic mats instead of tees.Its a shame because I'd played there a few times before but my two colleges had not.we would not have booked if we knew it was playing the course about half its normal length and putting on fairways.
