Glencorse Golf Club
Glencorse Golf Club was voted a hidden Scottish hidden gem by Sports Illustrated. It's not hard to see why: Founded in 1890, the club was designed by Willie Park and claims top golfers as members. Among them are the former Walker Cup Captain George Macgregor and the former Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallagher.
Glencorse Golf Club offers 18 holes and 5,217 yards of parkland golf that, even with eight par 3s, provides a hearty challenge: Only one hole of this octet measures less than 200 yards. The golf course provides a solid day for golfers of all levels.
As a bonus for golf tourists who are also regular tourists, Glencorse Golf Club sits nine miles from Edinburgh Castle and the city center, and a mile from Rosslyn Chapel, featured in "The Da Vinci Code."

An absolute wee hidden gem of a course. Myself and my friend had a free afternoon. We asked if possible to play nine holes. We were given a very warm welcome. Loved the course very much. Each hole we played was very scenic and a lot of the holes have water in play which adds to the challenge. Can not wait to return and play the back 9 and also come play the course during the open season when the regular greens are in play this is gonna be a smasher to play. I would thoroughly recommend that everyone should come for a round here, you won’t be disappointed.
