First surveyed by Old Tom Morris, the Dodhead parkland layout of 1896 was designed by Willie Park Jnr, twice Open champion, and updated by James Braid in 1922.
Although not long, its generous fairways, lush grash and links type greens offer the visitor many different challenges and tests of shotmaking to score well – and fun too for golfers of all abilities. Edinburgh Castle is visible from the aesthetic 8th hole.
