The Liberton Golf Club offers rolling parkland golf in southeast Edinburgh, featuring tight fairways and smallish, well-guarded greens, making for a fun and challenging round for golfers of all levels.

A round of golf at the Liberton Golf Club kicks off on Little France, a par-4 431-yarder. The next four holes - Pentlands, The Avenue, Mickey's Burn and Drumselch - are all par 4s, ranging in yardage from 263 to 385. The final hole, appropriately called The Green, is another par 4 and measures 360 yards.

After a round at the Liberton Golf Club, sink some snooker balls in the lounge.

Played this course on Sat 27th for the first time, very nice course well presented and in excellent condition.

It's not the longest course around but can still be a tricky little test.

I would recommend this course if you are looking for something local.

We really enjoyed playing this course, it was in excellent condition.

The Pro and members were really friendly and helpful.

Many of the holes are pretty short but they force you to think about club selection and course management, you don't just hit your driver.

Second time I've played the course, previous round almost a year ago...

Pro shop polite friendly and efficient...

Course in really good condition, amazing what a little sunshine does...

Greens fast and true...

Undulating course, good mix of holes, using the landscape and features...

Tees can be confusing to a first time visitors, signage near the greens would be helpful...

I've not been into clubhouse on either visit...

Lovely parkland course, some tricky holes and hillwalking. Best to be fit to get round. Today's round spoilt by waiting too long at each tee. Got stuck behind a ladies outing playing a 6 ball. Made me wait behind them the whole round, didn't allow me to play through. Even though I was only 1 player. Would play the course again, but be selective of tee times.

We recently played at Liberton Golf Club & had a fantastic day. The staff were fantastic & the course was in tip top condition. The greens were amazing, so perfect & very fast. After our game we went into the clubhouse for a snack & a pint and the bar staff were brilliant.

I would highly recommend going to Liberton Golf Club.

I would also like to thank Teeoftimes for the ease & cheapness of the booking process.

Had a great round here today, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Course was in excellent condition, we'll looked after with true greens. Quite a short course but don't be fooled, it's a challenge with blind approach shots and well guarded par 3's. I'll definitely be back and recommend it. Thanks

Hi Chick1999,

We are really disappointed to hear you never enjoyed your round at Liberton golf club on the 7/4/17. We find this review to be slightly unjust due to the course being in such good condition but would love to have some more feedback so we can tackle the direct areas you found poor! We also have noticed that this was not a verified purchase through Teeofftimes and cant seem to find you in our automated booking system which we find a little strange. We are sorry the course didnt make your required standards and wish you to contact the club directly so we can get more feedback to move our club forward.

regards Head greenkeeper
