With more than 280 years of History – Discover the Oldest Club in the World – The Royal Burgess


FROM DG SCOTLAND 2018 – in the words of Kevin Markham, Editor:This is another history-laden club originally designed by Willie Park Jr. With an opening boast of being the oldest club in the world you can be sure there is a rich and intriguing history here. See if you find the King’s gold ball? The course is a fine, old parkland where numerous varieties of towering trees will hinder and frustrate the wayward. The course may not be long (653 yards, par 71) but the many doglegs and the water hazards mean your driver will need to be employed with caution as you seek out the perfect position for your approach. The course is always beautifully maintained and it is well known for its smooth fast greens and smartly positioned bunkers. The 18th is a 244 yard par four off the back tees or an eye-catching 232 yard park three from the whites. The course coasts alongside Bruntsfield Links on the outer holes.

A tour of the Clubhouse is essential. History fills every corner and tours have become so popular that you need to pre-book for the official welcome.
