The Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society is the fifth oldest golf club in the world. Its tradition dates back to 1761 when members played on the Bruntsfield Links in Edinburgh. The Society moved to the links at Musselburgh in 1874 and to the present course at Davidson Mains in 1898.
The well-appointed Clubhouse which has magnificent views to the north over the Firth of Forth and to the west, boasts an extremely well supported lunchtime carvery, members and visitors lounges and excellent changing facilities.
The Society has hosted The British Boys, Boy International, British Seniors and most recently the Scottish Youth Championship.
As Edinburgh's most prestigious golf club, there is a 20 year waiting list for members.

|Course Name: Bruntsfield Links Holes: 18 Yardage: 6407 SSS: 71|
|A mature parkland course with magnificent views to the north and west. Although only 3 miles from Edinburgh city centre, there is an abundance of wildlife and many different types of trees border the fairways. The course is a most enjoyable challenge for all categories of golfers, and boasts excellent fairways and approaches to greens with many subtle borrows. Originally laid out by Willie Park, it has been modified over the years by Dr Alistair Mackenzie and most recently by Hawtree. It has proved to be a most fitting venue for Boy, Youth, and Senior British and Scottish Championship over the years.
