Newbattle Golf Club Ltd. has its holes sponsored by real estate agencies, restaurants and even a dentist – holes may still be available to sponsor, if anyone's interested. It's a new chapter in the history of an old golf club that sits seven miles outside Edinburgh, near the market town Dalkeith and adheres to the Policies of Newbattle Abbey. Though the golf course assumed its present location in 1934, it sits on hallowed grounds that have seen the feet of many a member of the Scottish and U.K. royalty.

A round at the Newbattle Golf Club Ltd. kicks off on St. Davids, a par 4 that measures 363 yards and requires a tee shot toward the left of the fairway to set up an approach to the protected green. The chance for big hitters to open up their games comes on the 13th hole, Lucky Dip, a par 5 that measures 566 yards. The hole requires a second shot that gets you around the dogleg for a mid- or short-iron to the green. The final hole at the Newbattle Golf Club Ltd., Hame, is a par 4 that measures 354 yards and requires a straight shot to stay inbounds for a mid- or short-iron to the green.

    Newbattle just keeps getting better and better every time me and my husband, and our friends play the course.
    The greens are always pacey and smooth as silk. I've putted on faster greens but much bumpier. Newbattle greens are EU tour standard.
    The rest of the playing surfaces are superb especially the fairways. It's such an aesthetically pleasing course course.
    The greens staff at Newbattle have such a high reputation for being very professional. It's just a shame from what I heard from a reliable source that a few of them are looking for new jobs because their pay packets are embarrassing, especially when you compare their wages to much less manicured courses in and around Edinburgh. 2/3 years at college and years of loyalty to the club should see the staff at newbattle on way above minimum wage. They get burger flipper wages at newbattle. The course Is primo and alwsalys is weather permiting. One day their lack of respect will bite them on the bum and they'll end up with staff not to fit to set a hand mower never mind use one, thus sending the course back to the days NBC used to be tagged ''the ploughed field.''
