Portobello Golf Course

Portobello is nine hole parkland course of genuine character with each hole a pleasure to play. The par-32 course is beautifully prepared and forgiving which makes it ideal for beginners getting to grips with the game or those looking for a quick round.

Arthur's Seat provides an attractive backdrop to this very gentle course that is not taxing on strength and the small tight greens make for accurate approach shots. 

The signature hole is the long par 3 on the 9th - this 198 yard hole requires a straight long iron, avoiding the bunkers at 150 yards and plays up to a sloping green making it a great hole to finish on.
