Liberton Golf Club
The Liberton Golf Club offers rolling parkland golf in southeast Edinburgh, featuring tight fairways and smallish, well-guarded greens, making for a fun and challenging round for golfers of all levels.
A round of golf at the Liberton Golf Club kicks off on Little France, a par-4 431-yarder. The next four holes - Pentlands, The Avenue, Mickey's Burn and Drumselch - are all par 4s, ranging in yardage from 263 to 385. The final hole, appropriately called The Green, is another par 4 and measures 360 yards.

Great conditions for mid winter
Liberton is a short course, perfect foe winter golf where the ball doesn’t travel / run as far. Play is off tee mats with fairway mats (provided) and yesterday 1/12 there were 12 full greens 6 winter. Course was busy but round was 3 hours 15. Perfect way to spend a winter afternoon.
Works on course spoil day
Having played at Liberton on several occasions previously and really enjoyed the course, it was extremely disappointing to encounter the issues we did yesterday.
1. The course was playing mats and some winter greens, not a problem in itself, however we were not advised this when booking and no discounted price was offered (we've played the fully opened course several times for the same as we paid yesterday). This is only a fairly minor complaint.
2. Slow play in front of us was a problem from 3 different groups, none of which made any attempt to speed up or let us play through. Again this is something we could put up with and wasn't the end of the world, but did add to the disappointment.
3. The main complaint was the amount of tractors and works going on during our round. This was very off putting when trying to play a shot with a tractor 10feet behind you with its engine roaring. Worse than that on one of the holes, one worker actually changed the flag position to a winter green when we were in the middle of playing the hole and about to play our approach shots! This was totally unacceptable. He then proceeded to fire up the tractor and drive back and forth less than 10feet behind us as we were attempting to put! No care or consideration given whatsoever to paying golfer trying to play the course.
Mainly for reason 3, we will not be returning to play this course until next summer (if at all). We all accept that conditions are different during the winter and certain controls have to be put in place, but the way it was dealt with yesterday was disgraceful.
Was a very nice course with no winter greens on, which for this part of Scotland is great! Few winter tees but that can be expected. Course stroke index was strange with a short par 3 being one on the supposed hardest holes on the course...
Some challenging holes - especially if you do not know the course layout. Great staff, great price, very good course.

Course was in very good condition, which contributed to a very enjoyable game with friends
Managed to book a tee time for Friday @ 1500 for myself. Cracking deal at £12 and managed to get a buggie also for £12. Not the longest course I’ve played but would help anyone’s short game. Nice enough lay out parking friendly enough and if that deal pops up again will defo book. It’s always nice to play somewhere different and if I was a wee bit closer would consider joining. Thanks for a nice afternoon shame about the weather as was poor until walking up 18th and sun cane out
Lovely course great condition . Dont think it will be possible to play on greens this good again . Very quick .nearly 4 putted 1st green but got to grips with them .. last time I played on green like that was at loch lomond..great course .pro shop staff very friendly and welcoming ..
The course was well set out, all holes were clearly marked, the greens were lightning quick which made putting a real challenge, suggest a layout of the course be printed on the back of the Scorecard or separately for newbies or occasional golfers, all in all the staff were very helpful and an enjoyable day it was.
