Welcome to West Linton Golf Club


Our outstanding 18-hole, par 69 moorland  course is a joy to play as well as offering a challenge to all levels of golfing ability.  Just a 20 minute drive down the A702 from the Edinburgh by-pass it is situated above the picturesque conservation village of West Linton, away from the traffic.

The course, designed by James Braid boasts wonderful views of the Scottish Border countryside with the hills of Upper Tweeddale to the south, Mendick Hill to the south west and the Pentland Hills to the north.  In addition to the breath taking scenery there is an abundance of wildlife, including hares, owls and curlews.

The club, formed in 1890, has always had equal membership for men and women and was recently voted the friendliest golf course in the Scottish Borders. The well appointed clubhouse caters for all pre and post round needs and overlooks the closing three holes of the course. The pro-shop at West Linton, run by Gareth Wright, offers a warm welcome to all. There is also a thriving non-playing membership who appreciate the good food and social events. 
We welcome visiting parties both during the week and at selected times at weekends. Society packages of championship golf and expert catering can be tailored to suit requirements. If you need further encouragement, don't just take our word for it:

For further information on the society packages offered please contact Club Secretary, Scott Mackay on 01968 660 970 or e-mail



We look forward to welcoming you for a round soon.
