July 4th 2016 Craigmillar Park Junior Open, Craigmillar Park Golf Club, Edinburgh

Club Website: http://www.craigmillarpark.co.uk

A long-established Edinburgh Golf Club, inaugurated in 1895, it moved to its present location in 1927, where the original 9 holes were designed by James Braid.

Although partly built on the hillside next to Blackford Hill, the course is largely rolling parkland in character. The tree planting carried out over a number of years has enhanced the appearance and increased the difficulties for the wayward golfer.  

Craigmillar Park is host to the first Scottish Amateur 72 hole event of the season. Scotland’s leading amateurs and many players from south of the border descend on the course in April each year to take part in this event previously won by 6 times major winner Sir Nick Faldo.
