West of Edinburgh, Kingsknowe Golf Club is easily reached by anywhere in Scotland thanks to the Edinburgh City Bypass. The 1902 Open champion Alec Herd originally designed the golf course. It was later redesigned by none other than James Braid. It is a parkland golf course laid above and within valleys of hills that roll gently - and on the ground where Oliver Cromwell gathered his army gathered to bombard Redhall Castle in 1650. These hills define the Kingsknowe Golf Club's beautiful fairways, lined by cherry trees that require clever golfers to launch their balls to heavily guarded - and comparatively small - greens. The course features many difficult dogleg par-4s, and claims as its marquee hole the 460-yard par-4 16th. After wrapping up on another of the Kingsknowe Golf Club's par-4s, the 297-yard Hame, retire to the restaurant and watch others battle the green.

Non helpful club members

Van was broken into whilst parked in club car park when I was on course. My wallet was stolen. Club captain came across helpful at first then when I asked to see cctv they wouldn't allow it! I found this very strange as it could of helped me understand what went on around my van.

The club has objected letting me see footage since and police still haven't contacted me. Very unhelpful in my time of need. Warning to anybody don't leave belongings in vehicle whilst playing, the club won't help you!
