Uphall Golf Club began in 1895, when the golf course was erected on terrain leased from Sheriff Shairp, who lived on the neighboring Houston Estate. It's a convenient golf course to reach, sitting just seven miles west of the Edinburgh Airport, outside of Uphall Village. It is an 18-hole parkland course set amidst mature trees and features relatively flat land within somewhat tight boundaries, making for a test for all golfers.

Uphall Golf Club's course measures 5,588 yards at par 69. A round of golf kicks off on Mains, a par 4 that comes in at 404 yards from the medal tees. It makes for a challenging opening hole, especially when played into the west wind, requiring an accurate tee shot so as to stay clear of troubles on the left and right, and then golfers are just a medium-to-long iron from a slim green. The round concludes on Binnie Craig, a par-4, 383-yarder that offers an excellent closing hole, again when that west wind is blowing.

After the round, check out the Uphall Golf Club's clubhouse, where management assures that although you're at a "Members Club," you'll be "made extremely welcome."

Due to this courses review score on golfshake was expecting something far better. Must say pro was chatty & helpful explaining quirky first few holes. Majority of the greens were pretty poor though. Was £14, so not expensive. Though there are better courses in the local area.

Played Uphall during pre session time I.e. end of March . Course was in good condition for time of year . The greens unfortunately were being treated and therefore were not true .

Layout of course has not changed much over the years , and is a good test of golf for the average golfer . Most holes are a test , and all are interesting with a challenge.

Very friendly staff within golf shop , and a pleasant atmosphere amongst other golfers on the course . Would and will definitely play Uphall again .

Nice course once you get across the road where it opens out after a tight first three holes.

Lots of crossovers where you have to be mindful of other golfers.

Course is well maintained and in great condition after the recent dry spell.

Very friendly staff and members. Strange layout on first few holes but opens out into an enjoyable layout. Great for a works outing as a lot of the holes cross and so good for banter.
