Hole 1 – Carriage-way

Watch out for the two fairway bunkers on the right as they are hidden from the tee.

Hole 1

Hole 2 – Stables

Tempting tee shot. Only try to carry bunkers left if there is a strong following wind.

Hole 2

Hole 3 – Easter Yett

Important to hit the fairway off the tee. Wayward tee shot leaves tight shot to pin position on the left and right sides of green.

Hole 3

Hole 4 – Laurels

Must stay left off the tee. Anything right will block you out from the green.

Hole 4

Hole 5 – Orchard

Play safe off the tee. Take a club which will leave you short of the bushes on the right hand side of the fairway.

Hole 5

Hole 6 – Mary Wright

Take one club more. The hole is made shorter by bunkers in front of the green.

Hole 6

Hole 7 – Arthur’s Seat

Take on more club for second shot, due to the dip in front of the green.

Hole 7

Hole 8 – Suthren Yett

You must stay to the left side of fairway off the tee to open up the green with your second shot.

Hole 8

Hole 9 – Jimmy Braid

When into the wind play as a three shot hole. The closer you are to the green in two shots, the more difficult the pitch shot.

Hole 9

Hole 10 – Morrison’s Haven

You cannot afford to go left off the tee. Take one more club for your second shot.

Hole 10

Hole 11 – Pony Park

You must favour the right side of the fairway, watch out for the fairway bunker on the corner of the dog-leg.

Hole 11

Hole 12 – The Gap

You cannot go left off the tee. Take one more club for your second shot.

Hole 12

Hole 13 – Blink O’ Forth

You must aim on the gap in the trees for the best line off the tee. Longer hitters should aim slightly to the right.

Hole 13

Hole 14 – The Gully

You cannot be short or left of the green. Take enough club, the hole looks shorter than it really is.

Hole 14

Hole 15 – The Glebe

The hardest hole on the course. Favour the right side of the fairway off the tee. If you have a good score going, be happy to make five.

Hole 15

Hole 16 – Hole Across

Make sure you take plenty of club. The bunker short of the green makes the hole look shorter.

Hole 16

Hole 17 – Auld Reekie

The further right you hit it off the tee, the harder the second shot.

Hole 17

Hole 18 – Prestongrange

Make sure you do not go right off the tee. Take enough club to carry the dip in front of the green.
