Type
Style Inland
Par 72

Slope N/A
Rating N/A

Three-time Open champion Willie Park initially designed the Duddingston Golf Club, which opened way back in 1895, and, over the hundred-some years since, changes to Park's architecture have only enhanced it. John Shade and Bill Biggar extended it in the 1960s and 1970s, adding a new tee to the 12th hole, and bringing it to its current length of 6,525 yards. A parkland golf course that undulates gently - "Duddingston" is Gaelic for "sunny side of the hill" - the course sees meticulous maintenance and offers an excellent test, as the Braid Burn winds through fairways, challenging golfers on several holes.

A round of golf at the Duddingston Golf Club kicks off with muscle on Deer Park, a par-5 hole that measures 495 yards from the white tees. It's just one of four par-5s on the course, the others being the fourth hole, the 489-yard Death or Glory; the monster 537-yard eighth hole, Gates; and the 500-yard 17th, Pond. The final hole is a relative breeze: R.D.B.M. is a par-4 that measures a mere 356 yards.

Some really nice holes

It's a popular course and you can see why. A relatively flat layout which makes for a pleasant walk. Quite a short course for a par 72 with some lovely holes.
