West of Edinburgh, Kingsknowe Golf Club is easily reached by anywhere in Scotland thanks to the Edinburgh City Bypass. The 1902 Open champion Alec Herd originally designed the golf course. It was later redesigned by none other than James Braid. It is a parkland golf course laid above and within valleys of hills that roll gently - and on the ground where Oliver Cromwell gathered his army gathered to bombard Redhall Castle in 1650.

These hills define the Kingsknowe Golf Club's beautiful fairways, lined by cherry trees that require clever golfers to launch their balls to heavily guarded - and comparatively small - greens. The course features many difficult dogleg par-4s, and claims as its marquee hole the 460-yard par-4 16th.

After wrapping up on another of the Kingsknowe Golf Club's par-4s, the 297-yard Hame, retire to the restaurant and watch others battle the green.
