As far as golf courses go, Dalmahoy has plenty to shout about.
Firstly, it was designed by a legendary Scottish champ. Secondly, it’s set in an impressive 1000-acre country house hotel resort.
Thirdly, it has views stretching to the Forth Bridge and Edinburgh Castle. Now that’s what we call scenery.
So if you are looking for an extra special gift for the sports fan in your life, today’s Big Deal from Dalmahoy Golf Course definitely ticks that box.
Scenic country house setting
Today’s Big Deal offers a chance to play a round on either Dalmahoy’s West or East courses. Both courses are 18-hole and cater to all ages and abilities.
The East Course was designed by James Braid to Championship standards while the shorter West Course is also a good challenge with smaller greens and tight fairways.
Dalmahoy is a 4-star hotel resort on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The baronial manor house is set within over 1000 acres of parkland, making it perfect for a day out.
As well as playing host to famous players such as Seve Ballesteros, Sam Torrance and Nick Faldo, the course has hosted both the Scottish Seniors Open and Solheim Cup. Golf facilities for ladies and gents are available within the hotel leisure club, including showers and lockers.
This deal is available seven days a week until the 31st of December, meaning you can either experience the course in full autumn foliage or in twinkling winter.
Make a day of it
Why not linger longer and enjoy lunch or dinner in the hotel’s golf-inspired brasserie or the elegant Pentland restaurant, both of which offer memorable views over the grounds?
Alternatively, you could tuck into the Traditional Afternoon Tea or alternatively, the Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea, which includes gourmet sausage rolls, mini pork pies and optional craft beer or single malt whisky.
Please arrange any restaurant bookings directly with the hotel.
Dalmahoy Golf Course has enjoyed recent enthusiastic reviews on Golfshake:
‘Good course, well maintained. Got the game off tee-off times and would recommend this course to anyone who likes a long golf course.’
‘Dalmahoy is a superb location. We had a 3 day golfing holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the golf and the venue. The west course is fantastic and has some challenging holes. A memorable golf break!’
‘Great day, great weather and a great setup of a golf course. Short in length but still very challenging if you get out of position.’
Great gift for golfers
Whether the golf enthusiast in your life is a dab hand or a novice, it’s safe to say that today’s Big Deal would make a great birthday or anniversary surprise for them.
With a choice of two courses and views stretching to Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Bridge, this should put a smile on their face for weeks to come.
