Welcome to The Royal Burgess
The Royal Burgess Golfing Society, founded in 1735, is the oldest golfing society in the world and one of only 10 “Royal” golf clubs in Scotland. While primarily a members’ club with a rich tradition, visitors and guests are made to feel very welcome.
Located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, the golf course is just six miles from the city centre and easily accessible by road, rail or air. The mature parkland course was originally designed by Willie Park Jnr with subsequent improvements from Harry Colt and Philip Mackenzie Ross. The course is lovingly maintained by loyal and dedicated greenstaff and is recognised as one of best parkland courses in the country.
The clubhouse blends tradition with functionality. All the main public rooms overlook the course and have an interesting selection of historic paintings and memorabilia. The clubhouse offers both fine and casual dining facilities.
The staff pride themselves on the quality of service provided to members, their guests and visitors. We hope that we can share the Burgess Experience with you.
