Course Description

West Linton is an outstanding moorland test just a 20-minute drive down the A702 from the Edinburgh City Bypass.

It sits away from traffic amid breathtaking scenery on Slipperfield Moor, above the picturesque village of West Linton. The course boasts wonderful views of the Scottish Borders, with the hills of upper Tweeddale to the south, Mendick Hill to the south-west and the Pentland Hills to the north.

The club was formed in 1890 by the local schoolmaster Robert Millar, whose vision and energy created the original nine-hole course. In 1926, renowned course architect James Braid provided advice on the improvement of the course and many of his ideas were put into place in succeeding years. However, it was not until 1972, when additional land became available, that the course was extended to 18 holes. It is now recognised as one of the finest courses in the area and is part of the James Braid Golf Trail.

The well-appointed clubhouse caters for all pre and post-round needs and overlooks the closing three holes of the course of which the 18th - a 230-yard par-3 – considered to be one of the most difficult closing holes in Scotland.
