Broomieknowe Golf Club
Broomieknowe Golf Club, six miles outside Edinburgh, features a well-aged parkland course in top shape. It's an easily walked golf course, the product of legendary course designers Ben Sayers and James Braid, with the first creating the layout and the second extending it.
Broomieknowe Golf Club's course - 6,172 yards, with a standard-scratch score and par of 70 each - offers a great golfing challenge. A round of golf kicks off on Fairway, as the first hole is called, a gentle 316-yard par 4 that requires a straight shot clear of the trees on both sides and then a short iron to hit the green. Battle your way through Mary's Dyke, the Cockpen, Robin's Nest and 13 other holes. You'll reach Knowesend, a 318-yard par 4, where you'll need to tee-off nicely to clear the gap in the trees (they grow, so visit when they're short or wait until they become even more of a challenge). From there, hit a short iron to a green bunkered on the left and right.
After your round at the Broomieknowe Golf Club, hit up the lounge for an informal atmosphere, quality food and its variety of beers.

First 3 holes and last 3 holes ok..but other 12 really good.. greens and course in good condition..lots of trees ! But decent course
Trees trees trees
Very tight course, have to be accurate off the tee or you’re in trouble pretty much anywhere! Greens very hard and quick but not in the best condition. Early season so can’t be too critical. Overall a brilliant test of golf!
Only fault I could find with the golf course was we couldn’t get breakfast before we started as it doesn’t start serving till 11am
First 3 holes straight up and down , easy and flat , then through a wall and across into a tremendous course, lots of up and ,down, long challenging par 4s. Great fun.
5 star all round except course layout. The only reason for the 3 on that aspect was the course was in a different setup than usual. Unfortunately we didn't know the usual setup as we had never played here before. A lot of confusion was had working out if we were teeing off on the right box.
Very boring poorly maintained course.... the pro shop took my d licence as collateral so I would hand back 2 mats..... won’t be back no matter the price .
We (four of us) had a great round of golf at Broomieknowe. Everyone was brilliant. Will definitely go back again.
Despite Covid restrictions and the ongoing building works they have still provided an excellent golfing experience
Some fair, some groundhog day
After the initial non welcome in the pro shop (that you'd expect in HMP Addiewell) we wandered to the first tee and played off, only to then see the tee box also marked 'Hole 3.'
Check on Garmin, hole looked roughly the same shape (more on that later) but the flag is hidden, so back to pro shop where a bunch of seniors said we were on the right hole. Thanks again staff!
After that, some fair holes:bit up, bit down, slight dog leg but only one hole (with a ditch at 240/200) you had to think about.
Some long par 4's (e. g. 450 yds) but I think there was no imagination in this as, apart from three par 3's and possibly a par 5 (forget), they're all par 4's. And just to make sure, the last four holes (17, 18, 1 and 2 then) are all identical: 360 yds ish, flat and straight.
We got this on a deal at £25 but would require more (any?) stimulation for this price
