Dalmahoy Hotel, Golf & Country Club - East Course
The Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club bills itself as "the only golf resort in the local Edinburgh area." It makes a good base to reach other Scottish golf destinations. Dalmahoy is a top draw, designed by James Braid in 1927. It hosts upper-tier golf events and has featured names such as Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Lee Trevino, and Colin Montgomerie. Two golf courses sit on 1,000 acres of some of Scotland's most magnificent landscape, encircled by woods, waters and the Pentland Hills. Each offers unique tests for all levels of golfers.
Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club's East Course - site of the 2006-08 Scottish Senior Open and several Scottish PGA Championships - offers 18 holes and 7,475 yards of par-72 golf. A 2005 redevelopment of the course ran about $2 million. On Ye Go from the very first hole, as it is called, a monster of a starter, a par-5 that measures 532 yards from the blue tees.
Battle the Devil's Table, The Ha Ha and the marathon 605-yard par-5 Braids Brawest, and you'll reach Solheim, the final hole on the Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club's East Course, where you'll need to finish the day by clearing 460 yards in four strokes.

I always worry about Hotel courses, but the East Course at Dalmahoy is a delight. I adored the back 9; there's so much variety. Stunning condition too. It is however a busy course, so the earlier you play the better.
Great course! Challenging and fun!!
Played as a 2 ball for the first time at Dalmahoy East and it was great!
Course was in near perfect condition for the start of the season!
Took under 4 hours and for such a long demanding course that was fine with us!
And the weather was phenomenal which always helps!
The East course is both challenging for shorter and longer hitter where it provides chances for birdies/eagles but can be penalised for finding one of the many bunkers dotted around the course!
I will definitely be back!!
What a steal
Booked this on Golf Now for £21 what a steal that was. Course lay out is excellent. Not many short holes on this course and plenty of bunkers (most I have ever seen on course) so pretty demanding for a hacker like me. Really enjoyed it greens could do with a bit of work but playing early April maybe explains it.
A must play
Course was fantastic weather conditions wasn’t great but greens were superb. We enjoyed the course and very informative staff will definitely be back and I recommend this course to everyone.
Your feedback is important to us, 3xE7A0h4bhyyAOiCUbdT. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon! Thanks for choosing Dalmahoy Hotel, Golf & Country Club - East Course.
Given recent wer weather course was in very good condition. Long holes (par 4's) make this course a tough test. Staff all very friendly and welcoming.
Long and repetitive
Was wet when we played the course which made it feel long and holes quite similar to each other apart from 13 and 14.
Greens had fertiliser on them and I found the pace variable.
My two friends and I played the east course our first time here the weather was very wet but it did not deter us from enjoying our golf as the course is in pristine condition we could not fault anything in fact we cant wait to go back and play the west course trust me if you are thinking of booking a round at Dalmahoy you will love it and the green staff are ever so friendly.
East course is a well maintained course the staff are friendly and helpful. It’s a fairly open course but very long you need to be long to get near the greens in regulation enjoyable even though I wasn’t long enough
Course was in great condition. Is a very good test of your game at over 6700 yards off the Yellow tees.
Surprised by winter measure in play
Totally surprised by the use of winter measures with respect to tee positions that effectively reduced some tough holes to a drive and a wedge.
Really enjoy playing the East Course, let's you open up and crack a few drives with big wide fairways. It's a long course with a few holes uphill so leave 4 hours to play it. Course was in great condition considering there was heavy rain the day before. Look forward to playing here again
