Edinburgh & East Lothian Golf

  • Par 71, yardage 6,420. North Berwick is the 13th oldest club in the world and is second only to St. Andrews for continuous play. The club was formed in 1832 but golf had been played here long before. The course hosts qualifying when the Open is held at Muirfield and requires a fair amount of skill and shot execution in order to score a good round. North Berwick is similiar to Scottish seaside links courses with holes laid out among the dunes and hills by the North Sea. What makes the course unique are the ancient stone walls that dissect many of the holes, severe undulations, plus large rock surfaces among fairways and along some greens. 

    Hole #13 "The Pit" is one of the most distinctive holes at North Berwick and certainly one of the most photographed.  One of the stone walls runs in front of a sunken green area framed by large dunes behind the green.  Hole #15 "The Redan Hole" is the last par-3 on the course and famously the most replicated hole in golf course architecture, with many of the top 100 courses in the world featuring a Redan hole, but the original stands alone.  The Redan  green slopes significantly right-to-left and away from the player and player approaches must land on the raised right hand side to propel ball to left and towards center of the sunken green.  But the most unique green on the course is on the 16th hole "The Gate".  The green is made up of two islands with a 3-foot deep trench dividing both sections making approaches very challenging to hold a small area of the green.  

    Golfers will always find North Berwich Golf Club genuinely welcoming and enjoyable to spend the day.  A sign at the front of the Clubhouse reads, "Your green fee ticket entitles you to temporary membership of the North Berwick Golf Club where you will be made welcome by members."   

    Handicap Limits: Gents 24 Ladies 34

  • Par 71, yardage 6,466. While Muirfield may be the jewel in East Lothian's golfing crown, Gullane No. 1 is not far behind it, as many of those who have played here in the Open Championship qualifying, Men's and Women's Scottish Opens over the years have testified. It is links golf at its best, the difficulty factor being increased at some holes by their undulating nature and breezes from across the Firth of Forth. The climb alone is worth it, though, when you can stand on the seventh tee and enjoy a panoramic view of Edinburgh, the Forth Bridges and Fife.  Golf has been played over the links of Gullane for more than 350 years.  Gullane peninsula is blessed with spectacular elevations and seaside views, superb turf and climate that allows year round golf.  

    The three golf courses at Gullane Golf Club are simply known by number reflecting their age.  Gullane No. 1 is carved over picturesque elevations, ancient links turf along the craggy edges of the Firth, pot bunkers, wispy grasses and smooth-rolling greens.  The architect of Gullane No. 1 is unknown but nature had much to do with the course layout!  Gullane No. 2 was laid out by the legendary Willie Park Jr. and has been hosted Open Championship Qualifying as well as Seniors Open Qualifying and Amateur Tournaments.  Gullane No. 3 is the shortest of the three courses, but provides a wonderful test based on shot-making skills rather than power.

    Gullane Golf Club offers a unique range of golf experiences for its members and visitors alike, combining a major role in the history of Scottish golf, great golfing conditions and a truly spectacular environment.

  • Par 71, yardage 6,244. The Gullane No.2 is a fine, challenging links in common with the other Gullane courses, and shares the same outlook and turf as Muirfield. It is considered by many locals to be the equal of the more celebrated, and expensive, No.1 course and one that should be high up on the agenda of any East Lothian trip. Excellent course conditioning has helped make the Gullane tracks the choice for both the Muirfield Open Championships as well as the British Women's Championship.

  • Par 71, yardage 6,404. Laid out by Old Tom Morris around 1850, Dunbar Golf Club links on the estuary of the Firth of Forth, is a breathtaking layout of a Championship links course that stretches across yards of coastal terrain. Well defined links holes play along the natural contours of the coastline, and between ancient stone walls and multiple holes.  Being by the sea shore naturally means that the wind plays a main factor with the course itself; a light breeze can transform this course into a serious challenge, producing a new playing experience with every round.

  • Par 70, yardage 6,601. Muirfield is regarded by many of the game's top players as being the "fairest" on the rotation of courses used by the R&A for the Open Championship. Jack Nicklaus was an Open winner here and he was so impressed that he decided to name his own course in Ohio "Muirfield Village".  One of the unusual charms about the Scottish version is that it is laid out in two separate loops, the front nine running clockwise on the outer and the back nine going in the opposite direction on the inner.  Since 1891, Muirfield has been the renowned host to 11 Amateur Championships and 16 Open Championships and is consistently ranked top ten in the world. 

    To play Muirfield, contact a Golf Zoo Scotland Vacation Specialist to review available dates and times to play this special club - an incredible experience golfers never forget! 

    Maximum handicap: 18 men, 20 women.

  •  Dirleton Links was setup on coastal links land that has hosted golf for over 100 years.  A traditional Scottish links course, Dirleton is a challenging experession  of sweeping, fast-rolling fairways, menacing sod-wall bunkers and undulating dunes.  Smaller greens than sister course Fidra Links, these greens are fast and undulating.

  • Fidra Links is a unique mixture of pine forest and fast-running links across the rolling hills of East Lothian.  Golfers debate how to categorize Fidra Links in terms of more links style or parkland, but we believe the course falls mostly into the category of links.  The first eleven holes are mostly lined with trees with the final seven holes more fast, links-style.  Indeed, like any great links course, golfers must navigate the deep bunkers and many crowned greens to score well. Fidra Links is a challenging and fair test of golf with beautiful scenery.  Above you, whispering Scottish pines tower on some holes.  Ahead, the sweeping pristine green rolling fairways and pristine greens. Out here in the natural countryside of Archerfield, it feels as if it's just you and the course.

  • Par 71, yardage 6,601. Craigielaw is situated just 20 miles east of Edinburgh amidst the glorious coastal scenery of East Lothian. Inspired by the great links courses of Britain, particulary those on land which are dominated by dunes, Craigielaw is equal to many of the finest examples of such courses which are conveniently located nearby in East Lothian. With a variety of tees to choose from, Red 5,371 yards, Blue 6,043 and White 6,601 yards, the greens at Craigielaw have been constructed and styled to conform to US PGA recommendations - although prepared along more traditional lines to be hard fast and true.  With challenging green complexes, cavernous bunkers and spectacular views over the Firth of Forth, Gullane Hill and Edinburgh, Craigielaw Golf Club is an experience not be missed while in Scotland's Golf Coast!

  • Par 69, yardage 5,480.  Scotland is a land of hidden gems - and for golfers, Kilspindie Golf Club along Scotlands Golf Coast is one of the best lying hidden among the nature reserve of Aberlady Bay, quaint village of Aberlady and the teeming waters of the Firth of Forth.  Kilspindie is the 35th oldest golf club in the world, instituted in 1867 and is a favourite of golfers who have played this traditional Scottish links course: quick, smooth greens; well-defined fairways laid out across the rolling hills overlooking the Firth and dangerous bunkering to avoid. The Club has been host to an alternative Ryder Cup with 12-man teams playing with pre-1930's hickory shafted clubs - a true Scottish tradition.  Golfers will enjoy the charm of the 150 year-old club and the warmth of the welcome by the Club staff.

  • Par 68, yardage 6,260. Designed by Harry Colt in 1921, Longniddry enjoys spectacular views of the Firth of Forth, to the hills of Fife and westwards to the Edinburgh skyline. Longniddry is a pleasant mix of links and parkland and a "hidden gem" in East Lothian. There may be no par fives to test your mettle, but don't let that fool you as the course has no less than eight par fours all over 400 yards and, if there's a stiff westerly wind, it can be challenging to score well - hence the reason it remains an Open Qualifying course.

  • Founded in 1761, the Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society is the fourth oldest in the world and one of Scotland's most prestigious clubs located only 3 miles northwest of Edinburgh city centre and 1 hour from The Old Course, St Andrews. The mature parkland style course was originally designed by Willie Park Jnr with later modifications by world renowned architects Dr Alister MacKenzie and James Braid. As a testament to the quality of the course The R&A since 2011 have selected Bruntsfield as a Qualifying Venue for the Open Championship.
