Kilspindie Golf Club

Kilspindie Golf Club Scotland

Kilspindie Golf Club lies on the nature reserve of Aberlady Bay between Craigielaw Golf Club and the Firth of Forth on Scotland’s Golf Coast. Classed as one of Scotland’s hidden gems, this short, quirky course is protected by narrowly defined fairways, pot bunkers and deceptive greens that can catch even the best ball strikers out. During a round, you may witness some of the Scottish wildlife including sea-birds, migratory geese, and seals sunning on the sand. In the distance, you can also see the profile of Edinburgh, its Castle, and Arthur’s Seat. Kilspindie is a real joy to play for any golfer.
