GM Course of the Week - Edzell GC

One of the best things about golf in Scotland is the proliferation of lesser-known but incredibly high quality and affordable tracks – there is no doubt that Edzell falls firmly into this category.

Welcome to... a little known but truly glorious track. Edzell is set in a breathtaking spot in north-east Scotland and enjoys ideal terrain for a golf course.

Course lowdown: It?s a heathland layout that weaves through majestic pines delivering a superb variety of holes. The fairways are fast running in summer and the greens are among the slickest and smoothest around. The toughest hole is undoubtedly the 2nd. A par 4 of 450 yards into the prevailing wind. Out of bounds lurks menacingly all down the right.

Stats: par 71, SSS 71, 6,367 yards

Green fees: £33wd per round, £45wd per day, £20wd twilight (after 4pm), £40we per round, £56we per day, £33we twilight (after 4pm)
