The Course

Golf Tavern

Recently renovated in 2016, did you know that Bruntsfield Links is the oldest short-hole golf course in the world?

We’ve also got prime location as one of Scotland’s very few free public golf courses! Beautifully maintained by Edinburgh City Council’s local green keeper, Bruntsfield Links boasts a fantastic spot of suburban greenery. With views of the volcanic Arthur’s Seat and Craggs, you’d be forgiven for forgetting you’re in the heart of Scotland’s bustling capital city.

If you would like to hire golf clubs and balls, you can do this from The Golf Tavern. For keen golfers, this is a rare historic treat and it’s really worthwhile to say that you’ve had a bash at pitching and putting in the oldest short-hole golf course in the world!
