The oldest golf course in Edinburgh. It is called short hole because it is a pitch and putt course. 18 holes of golf in the middle of a city park, surrounded by schools, shops and houses. Remember to visit the Golf Tavern after your round.

A wonderful location, adjacent to a dog park, and used by many but grounds are in great shape. The first course of this kind that I have seen in person. Great setting and beautiful neighborhood. Convenient to University and Old town.
