Silverknowes Golf Course

Silverknowes is a beautiful shore-front course with long, lush and expansive fairways, which provides a wonderful golfing experience for all abilities. 

The course is easy to walk and provides a fairly gentle start with a tough finish which can be quite a test in a westerly wind. The fairways are generous but there are several well-placed bunkers to catch any wayward shot.

Enjoy the challenge of this parkland course with a combination of mature and new trees which help to define the holes and course boundaries and enhance the commanding view across the water to the Kingdom of Fife and Cramond Island.



Golf Bookings

  • Tee time bookings can be made up to 14 days in advance.
  • If golf is included in your membership you can book online, via the app, in person or on the phone.
  • Golf Loyalty Card and Edinburgh Leisure Discount Card customers can book online, via the app, in person or on the phone.  If you’re booking online or via the app you must pay at the time of booking.   If you are booking in person or by phone your booking must be paid prior to teeing off.
  • Customers who do not have an Edinburgh Leisure card can book in person or on the phone and payment must be made at time of booking.
  • We can’t be in two places at once, however much we’d like to be so that you can’t have more than one tee time booking at the same time. For example, if you book a 3pm tee time at Silverknowes and then book a 3.15pm tee time at Braid Hills for the same day, the Silverknowes tee time will automatically be deleted and you will only have the Braid Hills booking. We will email you to confirm your first booking has been deleted.
  • You can only book one tee time online or via the app in any 24-hour period.  If you do want to book more tee times please phone your preferred course.
  • You can check your bookings by clicking ‘My bookings’ on the app and by checking ‘upcoming bookings’ in the online booking page.  Click here to access your online bookings.
  • If you make a booking on the app you can add it to your calendar and set up a calendar reminder.


      Arriving in time for your booking

      When you arrive, please ensure you check in with the starter at least 10 minutes prior to the tee time to confirm your attendance.


      Changing or cancelling your booking and no shows

      Isn’t it frustrating when you can’t get a tee time? Even more so when you find out that a time was available because someone booked and didn’t turn up or cancelled at the last minute.

      Please cancel or change your booking at least 3 hours prior to your tee time if you are unable to make it and you won't be charged for cancelling you booking.

      • You can change or cancel your booking online, via the app, in person or by phone.
      • If you cancel your booking within 3 hours of your tee time (late cancellation) or don’t turn up, you will be charged a £2 fee that should be paid within 7 days.

      If you are a Discount Card holder or golf Loyalty Card holder and paid for your booking:

      • You can change your booking online, in person or by phone but not via the app. 
      • If you cannot change your tee time, you can cancel your booking in person or by phone and you will be refunded.  
      • If you cancel within 3 hours (late cancellation) of your tee time you will be unable to change your tee time and will not be refunded.
      • If you don’t turn up for your booking, you will not be refunded.

      • You can change or cancel your booking online, via the app, in person or by phone. 
      • If you cancel within 3 hours (late cancellation) or don’t turn up, you will be charged for your booking in full.  Payment is required within 7 days.  

        If you do not have an Edinburgh Leisure card and paid for your booking:

        • You can change your booking or cancel and get a refund either in person or by phone.
        • If you cancel with less than 3 hours notice or do not turn up, you will not get a refund.


        Payment of fees

        If you incur any fees you will receive an email the following day asking you to pay within 7 days.  The email will detail how to make payment. You can pay online, via the app, by phone or in person.  If you don't pay within 7 days, you won't be able to make another booking until the payment is made.

        If you would like to make a group booking, please contact us at golfenquiries@edinburghleisure.co.uk and we will contact you to discuss your booking.

         

        Course Closures

        We will close the course for bad weather and we’ll update our website with these closures.  If the course is closed, we will cancel your booking.  If you have already paid, we will contact you to either move your booking or refund your payment.
