The Prestonfield Golf Club sits in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Europe's top golfing destinations. James Braid, one of golf's best known-designers, laid out the golf course, which challenges players to hit the par of 70 while traversing its 6,207 yards. The course includes two oversize par-5s, compensated for by a batch of par-3 that come up short by modern measurements.

Then there's all the stuff in the middle: The heart of the course is its par-4s, which provide both distance and challenge, depending both on players' strength and which way the wind blows. A round of golf at the Prestonfield Golf Club kicks off on Cragend, a 291-yard par 4 that makes for an excellent way to open a game, with its slight dogleg right. Watch out for the parking lot on the right.

After the round, head to the Prestonfield Golf Club's clubhouse for coffee, cocktails and a daily lunch menu.

    Hard to believe there was a good length golf course tucked away so close to the city centre. Stunning views of Arthurs Seat and picturesque when I played it mid summer 2011. Short par3's a couple of which were quite tight,and demanded a very accurate iron shots a couple that were good birdie chances. Par 4's were all a great challenge with 4 of them over 430yds. The 3rd hole par 5 was a great hole shaping round under Arthur's seat with out of bounds all down the left. The other par 5 7th was much more open and needed only a rescue to reach in 2. With St andrews an hour or so away and Muirfield 40 minutes the other way I couldnt say it is the best course in the area, but if staying in edinburgh and only have a few hours spare you wouldnt be disapointed
