Review for Kilspindie

Reviewer Score:


Practice those 30-80 yard pitch shots before your visit and you should be rewarded with plenty of good birdie opportunities. Kilspindie is a lovely links course which is perfect for holiday and social outings. Higher handicappers will love it because, at less than 5500 yards, it is not going to beat you up. While it may not represent the challenge of some of its neighbours, there are still some wonderful holes with beautiful bunkering. It was presented in fine condition when we played on a glorious mid-April day. Stand-out holes for me were the par 5 2nd, the well-bunkered downhill par 4 6th and the delightful par 3 8th where the beach awaits anything pushed right. There were one or two 'nothing' holes, however. The par 3 10th and short par 4 13th spring to mind and the finish is a little weak. Nothing to be too scared of if you do have a good score going! If they had just a little more land it could be great. Aside from the golf, the views across Aberlady Bay are fantastic. You may even be lucky enough to see seals basking on the sand. Nice day out, if a little overpriced at £50 a round. IS
