Welcome to Swanston Golf Club.
Swanston Golf Club was founded in 1927 as a Ladies-only course but due to demand from the Lady members’ partners it was soon opened up to men and extended to 18 holes in 1928.
The course generally did not change until 2006 when work began on seven new holes which opened for play in March 2009.
The current clubhouse was opened in 2007
In April 2016 we further improved the layout of our 18 hole course by incorporating two of the best holes from the old Lothianburn Golf Course.
Swanston also has the 9 Hole Par 3 Templar Course, a Driving Range and fantastic practice chipping and putting areas.
Also in April 2016 we entered into a joint venture with *Footgolf Scotland
In May 2018 work commenced on the construction of the new Swanston Golf Academy which will have 6 covered bays,16 grass bays, a teaching bay and a golf fitting studio staffed by Scott Gourlay of SGGT, one of the UK’s leading golf club fitters.
The construction and fitting work is expected to finish by mid August and Academy Memberships are available now. CLICK here for info.
*The Footgolf will not be available in its current format once the Academy is finished
Situated at the foot of the Pentland Hills the course boasts wonderful views across Edinburgh, Fife and beyond. The Club has a beautiful, modern family friendly spacious clubhouse which is open to non members too, serving delicious food and a variety of beers and wines.
So whether you’re looking for a breath-taking game of golf with amazing views over the City of Edinburgh or just a coffee, please do come and pay Swanston a visit.
We have a range of memberships available for all ages and abilities – you can choose to make use of all of them or just some of the facilities available.
