Turnhouse Golf Club debuted as a nine-holer in 1897, but expanded to 18 by 1900. A wooden hut was its first clubhouse - perhaps, on the 15th, you can hear ghosts of the original golfers washing away their rounds - and sold tea for sixpence, with meat costing a shilling. Not much happened on the golf course until 1924, when James Braid surveyed the course and suggested improvements, and then again, in 1950, when the current seventh and eighth holes were created.

Turnhouse Golf Club is a par-69 golf course with a standard-scratch rating of 70 running 6,060 yards. The golf course ranks third for number of par-4 holes longer than 400 yards in the Lothians. Sitting atop Lennie Hill, the golf course offers magnificent 360-degree views: On clear days golfers can glimpse the mountains of the Scottish Highlands (north), the River Forth (east), the Pentland Hills (south) and the old coal bings of Broxburn (west).

In other good news, the Turnhouse Golf Club's clubhouse is no longer a wooden hut; in not-so-good news, the prices of liquids and solids in the bar have gone up.
