Dalmahoy West Course

Edinburgh City

Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club attracts golfers of all levels. This luxury four-star hotel is home to one of Scotland's top golf resorts and has hosted the Scottish Seniors Open & Solheim Cup in previous years.

The resort features two 18-hole golf courses that challenge and cater for all standards. The East Course was designed by James Braid to Championship standards while the shorter West Course is also a good challenge with smaller greens and tight fairways.

Both courses afford stunning views across the region, where you can see as far as the Forth Bridges and over to Edinburgh Castle. It is a unique golf resort, just seven miles from Edinburgh’s city centre.

Course Summary

Dalmahoy’s golfing heritage attracts golfers of all levels, looking to test their skills at the famous venue where the European Ladies won their first Solheim Cup, and where famous names such as Seve Ballesteros, Sam Torrance and Nick Faldo have competed in the Scottish Seniors Open.

TThe West Course is the shorter of the two but is still a good test of golf. There is a good mix of shorter par 4’s and par 3’s, alongside some very tough par 4’s and a par 5 which is the longest on either course.

A perfect complement to its bigger brother, the West Course has an excellent mix of challenging holes that will test your accuracy off the tee and your short game around the greens.

Ideal for beginners or people who only play occasionally, the West Course can be shortened to just 9 or 13 holes, as the course winds its way past the Hotel giving the option of only playing for 90 mins to 2hrs if you’re short on time. There are four tees on each hole - blue for juniors, red for ladies and yellow or white for gents, meaning that the course is set up to cater for players of all ages and abilities.

There are 9-Hole and 18-Hole competitions held throughout the season as well as a winter league, meaning you can play competitive golf all year round.
