Founded in 1893, the blue-col­lar Ed­in­burgh Leisure course is a keenly priced gem. Ad­mit­tedly short, with only three par-fives and sev­eral drive­able par-fours, it criss­crosses se­ri­ously wild, hilly ter­rain, and de­spite be­ing only a ten­minute drive from Ed­in­burgh cas­tle, feels more like the High­lands. With ma­jes­tic views of Arthur’s Seat and the Firth of Forth beyond, the course is de­fended by steeply slop­ing fair­ways, pe­nal gorse and the wind.
