Prestonfield Golf Club is a James Braid designed 18 hole parkland course. There is no shortage of challenge or interest on this scenic and entertaining course – made even more fascinating by the variables of wind direction and strength. You will find much to test your skill, inspire the spirit and refresh the mind.

Playable all year round, the ‘easy walking’ course is bounded to the north by Holyrood Park and Duddingston Loch Bird Sanctuary. To the east, lies Braid Burn and Peffermill Mansion House. Located to the south are the grounds of Prestonfield House.

The Course sits in a spectacular location in a former deer estate at the foot of Arthur’s Seat and the Salisbury Crags and yet is less than a mile from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street and the City Centre.

There are references to the existence of Prestonfield in documents which go back to 1153. We believe that Mary Queen of Scots, herself a keen golfer, used to spend time in the garden area of the Old Mansion which adjoined the course where the 13th hole is now. That hole is known as “The Old Garden.”

James Braid laid out Prestonfield for the Civil Service Golf Society in 1920. The course has matured into a beautiful parkland course which is characterised by its challenging par 4s and its spectacular location. The names of the holes all have historical connections to the course but Braid was so impressed by what he managed to do with the land available to him for the 14 th hole that he simply called it “Dog Leg.”
