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.

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!
