Welcome to the Edinburgh Thistle Golf Club website. Edinburgh Thistle is a long established club based on the beautiful Braid Hills golf course on the southside of Edinburgh. The Thistle club was one of the founder clubs when the decision was made to play golf on the Braid Hills. The Braid Hills No1 course has been described as the best public course in Scotland after St Andrews.
Famous past members of the Thistle include the former Open Championship winners James Braid and Tommy Armour - for further details see under Club menu link. We are currently open for new members and further details can be found by clicking the link on the right.
The club has a small membership and prides itself it its open and friendly atmosphere.The Thistle clubhouse is situated above the starters hut at the Braid Hills where refreshments and snacks are served. In conjunction with Edinburgh leisure, the course together with our excellent catering facilities can be booked for Golfing societies and visiting parties, many of whom return on a regular basis. Our clubhouse facilities can also be booked for private functions at very competitive rates. For further details on membership or society outings please either email us or call into the clubhouse any Saturday afternoon. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh Thistle in the near future.
