The Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club bills itself as "the only golf resort in the local Edinburgh area." It makes a good base to reach other Scottish golf destinations. Dalmahoy is a top draw, designed by James Braid in 1927. It hosts upper-tier golf events and has featured names such as Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Lee Trevino, and Colin Montgomerie. Two golf courses sit on 1,000 acres of some of Scotland's most magnificent landscape, encircled by woods, waters and the Pentland Hills. Each offers unique tests for all levels of golfers.

Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club's East Course - site of the 2006-08 Scottish Senior Open and several Scottish PGA Championships - offers 18 holes and 7,475 yards of par-72 golf. A 2005 redevelopment of the course ran about $2 million. On Ye Go from the very first hole, as it is called, a monster of a starter, a par-5 that measures 532 yards from the blue tees.

Battle the Devil's Table, The Ha Ha and the marathon 605-yard par-5 Braids Brawest, and you'll reach Solheim, the final hole on the Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club's East Course, where you'll need to finish the day by clearing 460 yards in four strokes.

Championship layout

Really impressed with every facet of the experience. Course is a great test that requires good ball striking. Most holes are fairly generous fairways that are well disguised with brilliant bunkering or contours. Greens have lots of undulations on and around making approach play a challenge too. Really needs yardage discs dotted around at far more points between 100 and 200 yrds however for the serious golfer.

Sunday round during long weekend trip to edinburgh

Booked a round ahead of trip from the states. Need to book a riding cart ahead of the round as may not be available on the day. We had a twosome and walked using a buggy in 4 hrs. Experienced a full year of weather conditions in one round sun,rain,wind which made the experience even more memorable. Rented clubs were top notch and in good condition. Take an extra sleeve or two as rough is lethal on a lot of holes so partner needs to follow the ball on every shot.
Good track and well worth a visit.
You must stop for a beer in the bar afterwards to round off the experience.

Dalmahoy delight

Played the east course quite a few times.. it is a demanding test but most enjoyable. For this time of year, considering the poor weather in recent weeks, the course wad in very good condition. As good as l have playd in central Scotland.
Always a good set up to visit. Staff and starter very helpful. We had a little problem.
Our buggy broke down on theb14th tee, he further point from the clubhouse. Within minutes, the staff appeared with a replacement. Could not have asked for better service.
All in all, a good day's golf.

Good Winter Walk

sunny winter day with the surface defrosting but still firm underneath. Some winter tees in play which shortened some holes considerably especially 13 and 14. Greens were far from true as expected at this time of year but overall it was an enjoyable afternoon and a good challenge for rusty golf.

Dalmahoy Dalmajoy

I messed up with my booking and a wonderful lady in the Pro Shop called Margaret sorted it out for me. She is a diamond. So helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. It was the icing on the cake and made my round the pleasurable experience it was.
Thank you Margaret .

Top class course.

Would defiantly play course again as there was strong winds that helped on some holes and against us in others, could not fault course as it was raining night and before we went out and course held up with no signs of water anywhere.

Slow play nightmare

Arrived on the 13th tee to find we were one of 5 groups on this hole. So, skipped 13 and 14 to try and play 15 - 18 but course backed up from 15th. Ended up re-playing 7, 8 and 9 but little consolation when you have not played one third of the holes.

Great golfing experience

Great course! Quite long but generous fairways and the course was in great condition.

The 13th, 14th and 18th holes in particular require very accurate tee shots!

Poor

Arrived at starter box to check in only to be told you need to go to pro shop for the check in. Pro shop staff were dull and unpleasant. Course was shabby tee's were uneven scruffy, greens were awful condition for the prime time of the year. Different pace, scuffed, track lines and pin positions in horrible bumpy parts of the green! Overall poor from the moment we arrived been a few years since I last played and the place hasn't evolved or improved in the slightest. Myself and my group travel and play many courses and doubt we will be back.

Disappointing Dalmahoy

Played this course many times in the past. The location is superb but where it really matters -on the course- Dalmahoy is failing. We all understand weather conditions have made it difficult , but there is no excuse for elementart errors. For example, the bunkers were not raked and many full of stones. edging to define the sand traps was non existent. This is all basic stuff and matters must be addressed very quickly or this venue will drop down the golf quality rankings. There is nothing more upsetting to a golfer to see such a great test of golf be in such poor condition.

fantastic course, sham about the greens

loved the layout of the course, did not find it that hard after playing the Dukes course. What did let the course down was the moss on the greens and a lot of tufts. I know the weather has been bad, but I would not join with greens that poor.
I will play again in June to see if it gets any better.
