The Prestonfield Golf Club sits in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Europe's top golfing destinations. James Braid, one of golf's best known-designers, laid out the golf course, which challenges players to hit the par of 70 while traversing its 6,207 yards. The course includes two oversize par-5s, compensated for by a batch of par-3 that come up short by modern measurements.

Then there's all the stuff in the middle: The heart of the course is its par-4s, which provide both distance and challenge, depending both on players' strength and which way the wind blows. A round of golf at the Prestonfield Golf Club kicks off on Cragend, a 291-yard par 4 that makes for an excellent way to open a game, with its slight dogleg right. Watch out for the parking lot on the right.

After the round, head to the Prestonfield Golf Club's clubhouse for coffee, cocktails and a daily lunch menu.
