Our New Location-Swanston Golf Club
12 July 2018
Introducing the Fantastic Facilities at Swanston
With only a few days to go until the big move to our new Location at Swanston Golf Club, we thought we would share a bit of info about this gem of a club, and a few reasons why we decided it would be the place for our new State of the Art Performance Centre.
Swanston boasts some impressive facilities which are within easy reach, situated just off the City of Edinburgh Bypass, and within easy access to Edinburgh itself. Situated at the foot of the Pentland Hills the course boasts wonderful views across Edinburgh, Fife and beyond. The Club has a beautiful, modern family friendly spacious clubhouse which is open to non members too, serving delicious food and a variety of beers and wines in the Brasserie. So it is the perfect location for you to make the most of a day trip and enjoy a nice lunch.
The club is a thoroughly family friendly place, with lots for the kids to see too. Swanston Farm houses many horses, highland cattle and chickens and with many great walks around the area. Flat tracks and woodland paths skirt around the farm and offer an easy meander or a quick dog walk, suitable even for children and bicycles. For those looking for something more challenging, the hillside tracks lead you up past the historic thatched cottages of Swanston Village and quickly up into the hill above the Farm.
In April 2016 the golf course was updated to create a new improved layout of the 18 hole course by incorporating two of the best holes from the old Lothianburn Golf Course. Swanston also has the 9 Hole Par 3 Templar Course, a Driving Range and fantastic practice chipping and putting areas.
Clubs and buggies are also for hire and visitors tee times can be reserved here.
If you are coming from further afield, Swanston offers excellent accommodation within the Farm grounds, meaning you have everything at your doorstep, to make the most of your custom club fitting experience.
So when you're coming for a fitting, you can not only look forward to a top quality custom fitting service, but also make the most of the facilities with a breath-taking game of golf with amazing views over the City of Edinburgh, and a delicious lunch in the clubhouse.
