Golf: A Round through Time

Golf: A Round Through Time

Over the years, we've noticed many golf enthusiasts who come to Edinburgh and Scotland on holiday don't have time to play a proper round. For that reason, we've put together a new experience for anyone keen to play a few holes and learn about the history of the game. If you plan to play St Andrews, this could still be a fun thing to do, but the focus is more on the history of golf and having a bit of fun, playing vintage clubs on a vintage pitch and putt.

Golf has been played in Scotland for at least six hundred years and without a doubt, the game as we know it started here. On this experience, you are guided round the historic Bruntsfield Links (1761), a short hole golf course located in the heart of Edinburgh. We provide all the golf equipment, including some hickory golf clubs and golf balls for you to use.

Your guide will be there to tell you stories from Golf’s past which will entertain and shed light on the sports fascinating history. You'll learn how Golf evolved through the centuries, all while playing a few holes and hopefully getting a birdie or two! Have fun challenging your friends (or if you’re brave your spouse or partner) to see who can best tame the links!

Join us for an unforgettable round of golf where you’ll play Edinburgh's short hole (pitch and putt) course accompanied by a friendly, experienced guide.

Your guide will be Chris or Gains. Both guys come from small, traditional golfing towns and are well versed in the rules and Golf etiquette, but please note, neither Chris nor Gains is a qualified Golf Instructor. This experience is aimed at anyone in Edinburgh's city centre keen to play a few holes while learning about Golf's fascinating history. Golfers - good and bad - are welcome, as are beginners with a can-do attitude!

This experience is perfect for:

- Any golfer visiting Edinburgh without time to play a proper round
- Anyone intrigued by Golf History and interested in playing (good and bad players) a few holes
- Anyone keen explore a local Edinburgh gem (Bruntsfield Links) which few visitors experience
