Merchants Of Edinburgh Golf Club
Merchants of Edinburgh Golf Club features a design created by the land around the Easter and Wester Craiglockhart hills, making for a hilly tree-lined golf course that undulates and offers excellent views of Edinburgh. The golf course is short and tricky, requiring some blind strokes that seduce the bold and encompass a mix of rewards and punishments. It's definitely a cerebral course. There is no par-5, but seven par-3s let low-handicappers have a go at it, and let mid-high-handicappers do their thing.
The rough at the Merchants of Edinburgh Golf Club doesn't punish much, and few bunkers or manmade traps exist, so relax and play against nature.
The Merchants of Edinburgh Golf Club's first hole measures 244 yards and is one of those par-3s designed for everybody. On the final hole, golfers look at 282 yards and have four strokes to get there.

The most enjoyable course I've played at so far. Probably the most challenging too. Some fantastic holes with the slopes. Great views too.
Lovely hill climb with some golf thrown in
Nice course with lots of interesting holes.
Short (no par 5) but do not be fooled into thinking it is an easy outing. There is not a single "flat" hole on the course - they are all up hill, down hill, both (in many cases) or across a hill.
In fairness it is the first course I have played since returning from Dubai where buggies a flat land are the norm but nevertheless it is a physically demanding layout.
Your efforts are rewarded not only with interesting golf, but some spectacular views.
Recommended for the fit and able!
Great course, fabulous views
Great course, interesting holes, fantastic views and good mix of difficulty. A couple of holes feel squeezed in but really liked the course.

Course was is great condition some beautiful views of Edinburgh but you need to be a mountain goet to play this course very very hilly and course not very well marked out from green to tee
First time playing this course absolutely fantastic five stars on all levels staff were extremely friendly and members were also very hospitable would definitely recommend this to all my friends five stars on all levels golf course beautifully maintained and very interesting to play
Great value track
Really enjoyed this course. Very good value and incredible views. Holes were a fun challenge and the staff was very nice and helpful. Impressed.
Worth the wait
Drove past this course all my life and always wanted to play it, if you love exercise this is the course for you, scenery out of this world, beautiful challenging holes, enjoyed the hike up holes, down holes, up the next hole, it broke me, absolutely buckled.
First time playing this course and blown away by the stunning panoramic views of Edinburgh. Some really interesting layouts and an amazing par three. Keep you fit but worth the effort.
Good day out
The course including greens was in very good condition
We enjoyed the excellent conditions and wonderful views especially the 13 th tee
A couple of holes are a little hilly but not much trouble for anyone who is reasonably fit
Par 3 s
Some of the craziest par 3 iv played. We had such a laugh playing it and it was quite hard. Got be good of the tee or you will get punished. Great course to test your skill.
Merchant's Course has the potential to be a course of choice but seemed to fall short in just too many areas. unkempt tee areas bobly ground, grass too long, not draining, more sloped than you might expect was irritating, but more so the greens with too many unrepaired divots, squelchy and not draining around the edges but most frustratingly having lots of what I can only call bobbles dotted around. Your putt might run true for 7 ft be heading for the cup when a bobble just under the grass surface deflects your ball 20 degrees right and you miss the hole! Not a welcoming experience to visit.
Great little course
Great setup and friendly people. Course is relatively short but fun to play . Hilly in parts but baggies available if needed. Would definitely play again
