Short but very demanding, small well kept plateau greens. Some very memorable holes.

Swanston G.C is a very testing course set on the North facing slopes of the pentland hills. There are some tough climbs when playing this course and your stance will rarely be level. The main hazards here are gorse bushes, not trees particularly on the 8th hole which is a 216yrd par 3 played from an elevated tee over a sea of gorse bushes, with more down the right hand side. There are six par threes and no par fives, but don't let that give you the impression that this is an easy course. Another memorable hole is the seventh which is 435yrds slightly uphill and with slight dog-leg to the left, and is nearly always playing in to a stiff breeze.

The clubhouse is small in comparison to most golf clubs but you are guaranteed a warm, friendly atmosphere and some good food once inside. All in all, this is a very good days golf for all levels of play.

Location: South side of Edinburgh, along the city by pass to Lothianburn junction (ski slopes) head to city, left at first traffic lights.
