Edzell Old Course
Designed by top golfer architect Bob Simpson, the 18-hole par 71 course at The Edzell Golf Club was originally laid out in 1895 and amended some thirty-nine years later in line with recommendations from the legendary James Braid. With a virtually unchanged layout it is now complemented by a 9-hole West Water Course which was brought into play in 2001.
Located in the delightful village of Edzell, many times winner of the national Beautiful Britain in Bloom Competition, and lying midway between Dundee and Aberdeen, this magnificent course is set at the gateway to the Angus Glens reaching into the foothills of the Grampian Mountains. Although originally heathland in nature, a major tree-planting programme started in the 1960s has brought a parkland air to the picturesque and peaceful setting.

West Water Course
The 9 hole West Water course was designed by Graeme Webster and was opened in 2001. This par 32 layout is predominantly flat parkland and all fairways are tree-lined. The 7th and 8th holes border the West Water and are particularly scenic.
