Portobello Golf Course
The Portobello Golf Course is an easily walked short parkland course in the shadow of Arthur's Seat, the oldest of Edinburgh's municipal courses. Not too taxing a golf course and fresh air blowing off the firth: ideal for a hangover morning.
The nine-hole Portobello Golf Course offers excellent preparation and won't punish you too much for your mistakes on or off the course. The par-32 course measures 2,566 yards, and features diminutive greens that beg for precision in the approach shot.
Portobello Golf Course saves the best for last, a par 3 that comes in long, at 177 yards and takes a straight long-iron to avoid its bunkers (150 yards) and reach the sloped green - you're done.

It's a quick round of if you're short of time, course itself needs work, they have changed the layout apparently and now have back to back par threes. I can't recommend this course for any serious golfer. Go and play Musselburgh old course for a couple of pounds more.
Lovely course for a quick and calm round
Lovely course, I can recommend this course for beginners and fans of a quick and fast round.
Nice short fairways and good greens.
Lovely small golf course.
