Edzell lies at the gateway to the Grampians in the foothills of the Angus Glens. The mountains form a stunning backdrop to the course. The original course, laid out in 1895 by Bob Simpson, a top golf course architect of his day, was re-designed on recommendations made in the 1930s by the famous James Braid. Although originally heathland in nature, a major tree-planting programme started in the 1960s brought a parkland air to the picturesque and peaceful setting, which still retains great charm and character.
