Niddry Castle Golf Club is an 18-hole, par 70, 5914 yard course. 

The course is suitable for all levels & ability with magnificent views towards the Pentland Hills. Visitors will receive a warm welcome at Niddry Castle.

There was an original golf club in Winchburgh at Faucheldean from the early 1900s until the first war.

The current site on Niddry Parks dates from 1926 when the oil company built a 7-hole course for the shale mineworkers.  When the mines and ‘bings’ closed in 1961 the course was returned to grazing land for the Earl of Hopetoun.

In the early 1980s the land was restored to form a 9-hole course, the club house was then built in 1991 and the course was expanded to 18 holes in 2003. 

The course is now in a beautiful parkland setting amongst the ‘bings’ of West Lothian.
