Edinburgh's Craigmillar Park Golf Club, which sits near Blackford Hill's Royal Observatory, offers a parkland panorama of the city, East Lothian and the Perthshire Hills. The club formed in 1895 and has remained at its current location since 1907, and the designer James Braid extended the golf course to 18 holes in 1927.

The Craigmillar Park Golf Club's course measures 5,825 yards and hosts the 72-hole Craigmillar Park Open each April. Nick Faldo won in '76, turning professional soon after. Marc Warren won in 2000 and '02 and is now a top golfer. Lloyd Saltman, who won in 2007 and has since turned professional, plays the Asian Tour.

Craigmillar Park Golf Club offers several fantastic holes, perhaps the best of which is the par-3 15th, The Dams, on which your tee shot needs to clear a burn guarding a green that slopes nastily.

Mixed Bag

Played in January so the course was not going to be playing at its best.
The course is pretty hilly and there are too many blind shots for my liking. The course doesn't play that long and if you drive the ball well there won't be that many long irons into the green, 'good' you might say- but it gets a bit repetitive playing driver- wedge. Not a very penal course- for loose drives there is usually an escape. Could have done with a bit more attention to the winter greens. Good clubhouse with views over the 18th and 1st tee. Overall wouldn't go rushing back and think there are better parkland options in Edinburgh around this price point.

Beautiful Course with some amazing views over Edinburgh

Course looks like it has been kept in some kind of protective bubble from the harsh, wet winter we've had. Don't think I've ever played a course in such good condition at any time of year. Hats off to the Greenkeepers and staff - hardly a blade of grass out of place!
