Ravelston Golf Course

Developed on part of the former Ravelston Estate in Edinburgh, the Ravelston Golf Course was laid out on the eastern slopes of Corstorphine Hill by James Braid in 1912. It is a parkland course comprising only nine holes but, when played twice, has a total length of 5218 yards (4771m) and a par of 66. The club house is located on Ravelston Dykes Road.

Sir John Foulis (1638 - 1707), a lawyer and former proprietor of the Ravelston Estate, was a noted early golfer.
