Get in the swing of it with a golf bolt on

Posted: 19th April 2018

Edinburgh Leisure gym and fitness customers can now get in the swing of it, with a golf bolt-on membership, which will give unlimited access to six stunning golf courses all within driving range of the city centre.

Braid Hills

The Edinburgh Leisure ‘Golf Bolt On’ spans all six of Edinburgh Leisure’s courses which include: Braid Hills, Carrick Knowe, Craigentinny, Portobello, Silverknowes and the Wee Braids and costs just £25 per month, in addition to their normal membership. Customers taking out the Bolt On also receive a golf bundle for the Braid Hills Golf Centre worth £50.

David Atkinson, Golf Manager at Edinburgh Leisure said: ‘The Golf Bolt On is great value considering 18 holds at Braid Hills may cost as much as £26 at the weekend. It will definitely appeal to casual golfers, who might only play a round or two every month but who like to use golf as part of their overall fitness regime.”

The Golf Bolt On Membership is available to buy at any Edinburgh Leisure site and online –
