Founded in 1761, the Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society is the fourth oldest in the world and one of Scotland’s most prestigious clubs located only 3 miles from Edinburgh city centre and 1 hour from The Old Course, St Andrews.
The mature parkland style course was originally designed by Willie Park Jnr with later modifications by world renowned architects Dr Alister MacKenzie, James Braid and Fred Hawtree. As a testament to the quality of the venue, between 2011-2015 the R&A selected Bruntsfield as a Qualifying Venue for the Open Championship.
In 2019, after a 2 year redevelopment by world renowned course architect Tom Mackenzie of Ebert & Mackenzie, the ‘new layout’ was opened with 6 new holes, 8 new greens and all bunkering renewed which now presents a consistent and fair but challenging course for golfers of all abilities.
The £20 Pollok rate is a £70 discount to the summer green-fee.

Where else could you follow in the footsteps of Old Tom Morris and Henry Cotton in the same day?
The Old Course at Moray is considered to be one of the finest links courses in Scotland. A classic links designed by Old Tom Morris with deep revetted bunkers, undulating gorse lined fairways and smooth fast greens. It is a superb test of golf with seven par fours over 400 yards.
Henry Cotton’s preference for precision golf can be seen with the shorter but somewhat tighter new course with greens smaller than the Old but every bit as good, and equally challenging and rewarding.
Moray Golf Club is truly one of Scotland’s gems, a fitting tribute to the artistry of Old Tom Morris and Henry Cotton and a must for golfers visiting the area.
The £20 Pollok rate is a £75 saving on the summer rate.

We are one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, dating back to 1845 and are one of the 24 clubs that originally helped purchase the Amateur Championship trophy first played for in 1885.
The famous Old Tom Morris and James Braid influenced links requires both strategy and skill whilst offering an enjoyable test for all levels.
The course combines the best elements of links and heathland, with tight fairways, challenging carries, undulating greens and sandhills forged by nature.
The touches of heather add a wonderful texture to the course and the moderately undulating hillocks add visual appeal as well as imparting their strategic influence.
A warm Scottish welcome awaits.
The £30 Pollok rate is a £95 discount to the summer green-fee.
