"If Muirfield is regarded as the King of East Lothian then North Berwick is undoubtedly Queen. Sometimes words cannot accurately describe a course and do it total justice, you just have to go and experience it for yourself in order to get a proper flavour of the place. The West Links at North Berwick is one of those."

Golf Course Reviews in East Lothian.
Below you will find our golf course reviews from venues in East Lothian and South-East of Scotland including Edinburgh and The Borders.
"Muirfield is one of the most historically important golfing venues in the world. Not only has it staged The Open Championship on 15 occasions but it is also home to the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. The HCEG is one of the oldest and most influential clubs in golf."
"I probably lack the savoir faire that The Renaissance Club expects from a golfer but regardless of this I recently seized an opportunity to peg it up behind the closed gates and allowed myself to be indulged for a day. Renaissance is geared towards a niche clientele, one that moves in entirely different circles to me."
"No less than three courses, ranked by number reflecting their age, constitute Gullane Golf Club. It is here you will find an expansive oasis of links golf located in the small East Lothian town that the club is named after. The town itself is a perfect base for golfing in East Lothian with over 20 quality golf courses within easy reach."
"Luffness New serves up an uncomplicated yet delicious feast of pure and traditional links golf laid out naturally across unbelievably firm and fast turf, some of the best I’ve golfed on. Thanks to the gentle, but not insignificant undulations, I could play here for eternity."
"No less than three courses, ranked by number reflecting their age, constitute Gullane Golf Club. The second course at Gullane was built 14 years later and is a championship course in its own right. Indeed it has also staged Open Qualifying in the recent past as well as the Seniors Open Amateur Championship in 2002."
"Golf doesn't get any closer to the North Sea than at Dunbar. In fact it's even possible to play from the rocky beach on at least one of the holes... as I found out! The suspenseful drive down the narrow lane to the clubhouse really whets your appetite for coastal golf."
