Edinburgh offers a fantastic base from which to experience Scotland's world renowned golf courses, while enjoying a visit to the historic capital.

Scotland is truly a golfer's paradise, with its excellent golf courses set amid beautiful scenery, well facilitated clubs and the famous friendly Scottish hospitality.

In recent years, the sport has grown in profile as celebrities such as Madonna, Catherine Zeta Jones and Brad Pitt have all been snapped playing the game.

Old Course, St. AndrewsScots, however, have always been fond of this exciting, yet relaxing, and above all sociable game. In Scotland, golf provides a social bonding experience for families, school groups and business contacts alike.

One of the most centrally located golf courses is Merchants of Edinburgh, with views of the famous volcano Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh Castle and the Pentland Hills.

Edinburgh's oldest active golf course is Mortonhall. Public golf courses include Braid Hills, Craigentinny, Carrick Knowe, Portobello, Silverknowes and Princes.

Edinburgh has the enviable position of being in close proximity to the surrounding rural areas, not least the breathtaking rolling countryside of East Lothian, home to some of Scotland's finest golf courses.

Musselburgh Golf Course, which is easily accessed from the Edinburgh bypass, dates back to 1672 and it is widely believed Mary Queen of Scots played there.

Edinburgh is also well placed for access to St Andrews Golf Course and North Berwick Golf Course.
