Location and Route Planning
In their Words…….
Scotland is a land of hidden gems – and for golfers Kilspindie Golf Club is one of the finest, lying hidden among the nature reserve of Aberlady Bay, the quaint village of Aberlady, and the teaming waters of the Firth of Forth.
Playing these traditional Scottish links, you may witness sea-birds diving for food, migratory geese, and seals sunning on the sand. In the distance, you can see the profile of Edinburgh, its Castle, and the long extinct volcanic cone of Arthur’s Seat. The course is secreted away from the village via a few hundred yards of private, single-track road.
Kilspindie is a favourite of any golfer who has played it, quick, deceptive greens, well-defined fairways, a good challenge whatever your handicap! . Kilspindie has been host to an alternative Ryder Cup, with 12-man teams playing with pre-1930’s hickory shafted clubs. Kilspindie is reputed to be the 35th oldest golf club in the world, instituted in 1867.
When Luffness Golf Club moved from the east side of Aberlady Bay to the current location of the west side, the construction of the nucleus of the current Clubhouse was completed in time for the opening on 26 November 1898 of what is now the Kilspindie links, the Club having been re-named in 1899.
he premises were relative small compared to the current building and the original “Gentlemen’ Locker Room and Bar” is still intact with the original lockers (all in use to this day but clearly intended for pencil bags and not modern equipment!) and the Honours Board above the open fire place.
What has not changed is the warm welcome which awaits all – whether Member, guest or visitor alike!Kilspindie Golf Club
