Castle Park

Back from the brink of closure this club is a golfing success story. Whilst some courses struggle, Castle Park is bucking all the trends.  




This unique course, built on a naturally undulating site that was once the great deer park of nearby Yester Castle, is an ideal parkland alternative to the links course of East Lothian.

Castle Park is located inland from the coast about 40 minutes from Edinburgh and about 25 minutes from North Berwick.

With a wonderful new club house, a bespoke new driving range and most importantly a fresh modern approach to the sport of golf, everyone can enjoy it as a life-long leisure activity.

It’s no wonder membership is growing steadily, with the warm friendly and hugely welcoming atmosphere, coupled with a beautiful, challenging 18 hole course nestled at the foot of the stunning, tranquil Lammermuir hills around some of East Lothian’s prettiest rural countryside.

With it’s undulating natural landscape it’s a course for the shot shapers, one that requires creativity and imagination. The back nine has some challenging holes, in particular the short 12th. 168 yards from the back tees over the valley to a distinctly raised green.

The new owners are committed to providing enjoyable golf for all of their members and visitors whilst providing great 19th hole facilities. Considering the quality of the golf course, the inexpensive cost of play, the friendliness of the staff and the practice facility, this is good value for money and worth considering.

An added bonus – A good restaurant serving tasty and well-prepared home-cooked meals in a very friendly atmosphere.
