Charity Golf Day in Edinburgh – Bruntsfield Links

Thursday 29th September 2022

A charity golf day which stands out from the crowd! From the moment you arrive, you will know you’re on for a great day, playing your best golf on one of the world’s oldest courses.
We will provide tasty breakfast rolls, tea and coffee in the members-only clubhouse to prepare you for your charity golf day. Then, when the Army artillery gun goes bang, you’re off on a great round of golf on this stunning parkland-style course. After a group photo, we’ve been granted access to the exclusive members-only dining room for lunch and prize-giving.
