In Their Words ...........
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. In 1898 the Society moved to the present location at Barntongate, which must be one of the most attractive settings for any golf course in a major city. Set in stunning parkland the course has spectacular views over the Firth of Forth and Fife beyond.
The course was initially designed by Willie Park Jnr, one of the founders of golf course architecture. Subsequent revisions by Dr Alistair MacKenzie in 1921-22 and Fred Hawtree between 1972-74 have created a challenging layout of 6,446 yards (Par 71 / SSS 71), that wends between mature trees. The course is characterised by well placed bunkers, mature trees lining the beautifully manicured fairways and undulating greens full of character and deceptive slopes. Extensive practice facilities are also available to both members and visitors. An ongoing programme of green reconstruction to USGA specification has improved both consistency and speed, and with many subtle borrows, a good score at Bruntsfield is always well earned.
As a testament to the quality of the course The R&A since 2011 have selected Bruntsfield as a Qualifying Venue for the Open Championship.
Bruntsfield is famous for the quality of lunch, using the best local produce and is served daily in the upstairs Dining Room providing excellent views over the Firth of Forth.
