Carrick Knowe Golf Club is a par-70 mature parkland course in the heart of Edinburgh lined by aging trees and now featuring greens set to United States Golf Association specifications on the front nine - contrast those with the back nine's original ones. The golf course, with its returning nine holes, offers the perfect solution for golfers pressed for time.

Hot holes at the Carrick Knowe Golf Club include the par-4 373-yard second, which requires precision from the tee to a landing area that sits just before a pair of punishing bunkers and then a second shot to carry the bunkers and make the green.

Later, the Carrick Knowe Golf Club's short par-3 15th begs nerves of steel: You've got to nail the green to avoid losing your drive to the lateral bunkers on its left.

    This course used to be a 4 star in my book some 20 years ago but since then the greenkeeping staff have just struggled to keep it in any proper state of play...

    I actually joined the affilited Carrickvale Golf Club in september last year and have yet to see all 18 holes fully open such is the state of the course. The front 9 plays well but the back 9 is attrocious after any heavy rainfall.

    I just refuse to play the course again until all 18 greens are in full working order. The temporary greens on holes 12 and 17 are absolutely attrocious and yet have been in operation for over 7 months... Come on EL get a grip on the situation.

    After alll that moaning by the way... I like Carricknowe it's just a pity it's hardly ever in a good state of play.
