Golf

Whether it's a quick game after work or a more leisurely pursuit with friends at the weekend, our six quality courses will make a memorable round from the scenic challenge of Braid Hills, Scotland's first purpose-built inland public golf course, to the 9 hole courses of Portobello or the Wee Braids, which offer a perfect introduction for beginners.

You don’t have to be a golf club member or hold an official golf handicap - perfect if you don't get to play very often or just fancy a different challenge. 


As the weather starts to warm, it's time to look at a Golf Annual Membership.  As part of the Biggest Club In Town we offer full access to all 6 of our stunning courses*;  Braid Hills, Silverknowes, Carrick Knowe, Craigentinny, Portobello and Wee Braids golf courses, all accessible with one membership.  These courses all offer challenges no matter whether you're a beginner or a pro as well as some dramatic views across the city.  So why not take out an Edinburgh Leisure annual golf membership instead of being tied to one course for the year?

*5 courses Dec-Feb, some Wee Braids holes will be incorporated into main Braids during this time
