Uphall Golf Club
Uphall Golf Club began in 1895, when the golf course was erected on terrain leased from Sheriff Shairp, who lived on the neighboring Houston Estate. It's a convenient golf course to reach, sitting just seven miles west of the Edinburgh Airport, outside of Uphall Village. It is an 18-hole parkland course set amidst mature trees and features relatively flat land within somewhat tight boundaries, making for a test for all golfers.
Uphall Golf Club's course measures 5,588 yards at par 69. A round of golf kicks off on Mains, a par 4 that comes in at 404 yards from the medal tees. It makes for a challenging opening hole, especially when played into the west wind, requiring an accurate tee shot so as to stay clear of troubles on the left and right, and then golfers are just a medium-to-long iron from a slim green. The round concludes on Binnie Craig, a par-4, 383-yarder that offers an excellent closing hole, again when that west wind is blowing.
After the round, check out the Uphall Golf Club's clubhouse, where management assures that although you're at a "Members Club," you'll be "made extremely welcome."

Course is play really good, but watch those greens are fast.
First time visit
Good interesting course, and as the starter told us, will enjoy it better 2nd time round once you fully understood the intricacies of certain holes particularly those on the car park side of the main road that bisects the course.
Fairways were in good nick, but some of the greens still needed a few more weeks good weather to get them right - some were still heavily fertisied / sanded.
Interesting course in two parts either said of main road - one side challenging with some curious holes needing a bit of thought and the other more of a standard parkland structure, but still challenging.
Finally, thanks to the starter for welcoming and giving us some good gen on how to play certain of the more interesting holes.
Brilliant course and a great guy that runs the starter box, Richard. Made us feel super welcome and gave us a run down of the full course, really knowledge and a proper gent. Will be back
Very nice course and a fair test for all handicap golfers.
Very well drained fairways, greens were a little sandy but playable.
Mature tree lined fairways - lovely day!
Good short course
I like this course as you can round it in 3-3.30 hours. Greens are a bit sandy at this time of year but at least no winter greens. I originally booked for Friday afternoon but had to reschedule. No issues whatsoever with changing my time to the following day. Thanks Uphall. Will be back.
Quirky Hidden Gem
Lots of other better known courses in the area, don’t know why as this is a lovely wee course. Had a fun time.
Nice to play a course with all regular greens and no mats at this time of year. Very welcoming staff geometrical holes very challenging for high handicappers great day will be back thx
Great wee course
Greens were starting to get there, fairways were in good condition. Seriously tempted to join their rolling contract membership. Worth a play and a few nice par3s
No club house
As it burned down
Once you get passed
The first two holes
As they use same fair
Way and so you got to watch. .And second green
is use by 15 hole as well
And a bit blind from tee
Apart from those points
Good little coarce
Very friendly staff/starter, lovely course with some quirky holes, thoroughly enjoyed playing there, will be even better when they get their clubhouse re built. Would recommend playing this course.
Great Course no facilities
The course was in great condition. The greens were being treated but didn't effect ball role.
There is no clubhouse following a fire but I believe a rebuild is starting next year.
We were a bit unfortunate when we played Uphall. The clubhouse burned down a year ago or so, and so no or very little facilities plus the greens had just been cited and sanded so putting was almost a waste of time.
Generally the course looked great and I’d go back but we were very disappointed.
Quirky but great condition
Starter was very chatty and helpful. Layout of many holes is bizarre with a shared green, 2 shared fairways and 2 crossing fairways. Greens were immaculate. Probably better to play second time around
Very forgiving course!
Loved playing this course! Extra wide fairways and ground underneath trees clear so no trouble finding your ball.
Excellent course for beginners and experienced players.
No clubhouse, huts in use, burnt down two years ago !
