Pumpherston Golf Club
Pumpherston Golf Club, designed by Graeme Webster, offers a superior golfing challenge, including water features over the length of the 6,000-yard, par-70 golf course and R&A-standard greens.
A round at Pumpherston Golf Club begins on Paraffin Young, a 398-yard par 4 that requires a straight drive and attention on hazards surrounding the green: bunkers right, deep rough behind. Hitters unpack long games on Pentlands, the 516-yard par-5 10th, which features a narrow fairway, requiring a straight tee shot; 150 yards from the green, the fairway drops, making a tricky approach. Close the round on Iranapol, another long hole, at 505 yards and par 5, and where water guards the green, meaning that length alone won't help you.
Book a seat in the Pumpherston Golf Club's clubhouse early - and let the clubhouse caterer know about any dietary restrictions, which the staff can work with - and head up for lunch and a drink with views of the golf course.

I had seen some of the previous negative reviews and in all honesty had been kind of put off playing here by them. But I thought I'd play the course and see for myself. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and maybe they caught the course on a bad day? But how very misleading and just plain wrong they were. The course was in immaculate condition, and despite being extremely quiet the grounds staff were out in force. And hats off to them. Ive played 90% of the courses around Edinburgh since the turn of they year and condition wise this was right up there. Every bunker was expertly raked for a start. The course is really lovely with lots of water features and dog legs to make you think about your shots and I thoroughly enjoyed playing here. I will definitely be back! A steal at £20 a round.
Best value for money
This course is an absolute steal for the price to play.
Weather wasn’t the greatest but the course was playing fantastic.
Great ground staff who are totally aware if they are making too much noise on machinery, line of shot etc
Some real challenges out there but also some holes that give back and make it really enjoyable for a higher handicapper.
An absolute joy to play this course and will be bringing more friends back!
Only let you play front nine twice
Did not say this till you turn up at coarce
Mud was over top of shoe on all the holes
And tees where 30yds forward not good
And paid full price I would say give it a miss till summer
A wee bit muddy ...
Interesting layout but a fair walk between some holes. Got lost between 16th green and 17th tee !
Would be a nice course when the ground is drier - very wet and muddy underfoot.
Lots of drainage work required ...
Great course but when we went the course was soaking wet advise to play in summer
The course was in really bad shape with the recent weather, completely boggy and cut up. Probably should be closed for a Week or so to settle
Good range of challenges
I really enjoyed playing this course. Good balance between short and long par 4s, par 3s and par 5s. Some very picturesque features on a beautiful day at the course
Nice course and great value. However, very wet with not much drainage made playing conditions worse than expected. Played other courses after similar rain recently that seemed to have drained a lot better.
very good greens.nice layout.very wet. so did not see couse at its best.
Excellent course for beginners to medium handicap golfers
Had an early autumn round here and throughly enjoyed it. This course is ideal for mid to high handicap golfers as it’s relatively flat and plenty of room for an errant tee shot. The rough was fair and easily find your ball if you go off line. The greens ran true, a good speed and receptive to approach shots. The par 3 13th is a lovely wee hole. In fact the holes 13 to 17 were really nice. Only moan and very minor was the ground was quite wet, possibly just down to the time of year we played. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable round. I will be back.
Would certainly recommend
Great value for money well laid out with some tricky holes most certainly be back
Good first impression
Played this after some pretty heavy rain earlier in the week. There was a few puddles littered around the place, and it was pretty wet underfoot. HOWEVER, all four of us left the course pretty impressed having had a good round that was nowhere near ruined.
Couple of really lovely holes, the 2nd and the par 3 late into the back nine stick out. The 16th has a really nice feature green but you honestly don't know until you're ON the green how unique the hole is,- which kinda wastes it. Would be better as a par 3 with an elevated view of the hole so you can appreciate it. One easily fixed downside was the fact I've had more loose sand in my shoes after a dog walk on the beach- than there is in most of the bunkers,... but bunkers on most courses arent great since reopening after Covid.
I Will most definitely try to get back in fairer weather, and we were all in agreement that in spring/summer 2021 we'll use this course as one of our neutral venues for our cash betting fourballs.
Nobody would be disappointed playing here.
