Duddingston Golf Club

Duddingston Golf Club first opened its doors in 1895. Since then, it has been expanded to a 6525-yard course with 18 holes. The architect, Willie Park, chose the initial site and created what was originally the entire course and club. In the 1960s and 1970s, architects John Shade and Bill Biggar helped to expand the site to its current size. Their aim was to make sure it reached its full potential and what Willie Park had hoped for – ‘a first-class course’.

The club is just 3 and a half miles from us here at Parliament House Hotel and 1 mile from the stunning Duddingston Loch. From the centre of Edinburgh, it is just over 3 miles.
