Very nice golf course just outside Edinburgh, Scotland. Friendly helpful staff, which also spoke Swedish. The course was in very good condition and would love to go back there and play more rounds.

On the positive side: on a fine day the views are nice, greens are fair condition and tricky in places, its a reasonable challenge with some longer par fours and quite tough approaches to narrow and/or plateaued greens, rough is enough to be a penalty...More

I played the fairly open and undulating Silverknowes in February 2015 and considered it to be in sound condition for a municipal course. It was also very reasonably priced at £15.75 (a Teeofftimes Internet deal), especially as there were no winter tees or greens and...More

What a beautifully laid out and challenging course with fantastic river views. The Golf starters are friendly and informative, unfortunately that's where the praise ends. The course is so shockingly looked after if you play on a summers day the greens are soaked! It's like...More

Silverknowes has a sensational setting and on this day the pleasant Kingdom of Fife was visible in its pomp. The purpose of our visit was to see if our dog could stand watching us hit balls without disappearing over the horizon, but despite the travails...More

This is a testing course for an amateur and what I consider one of the best of the Council run courses in Edinburgh. The views across to Fife are awesome should you play on a sunny day. Prices are about GBP20 for 18 holes and...More
