  • 18 holes, par 71, 6,583 yards. Links.

    Another classic links course in a corridor of top class golf courses including amongst others Muirfield and North Berwick, Gullane golf club is a sensational set up, steeped in tradition and highly acclaimed by all who have played here. Like many of its neighbour courses, Gullane is perched on a stretch of exposed coastline with superb panoramic views of the Firth of Forth estuary.

    Although Gullane golf club has three championship golf courses, Gullane No.1 is by far the best of the lot, considered one of Scotland’s best and according to Golf Magazine, the par five 3rd hole is one of the best in the world. The course regularly hosts major tournaments including on five occasions the Final Qualifying for The Open Championship as well as other top-level amateur championships.

    There are 124 pot-bunkers hidden throughout the course and with tight fairways, undulating greens and prevailing winds, this is not for the light-hearted. But this is what golf in Scotland is all about, ancient links turf, long wispy grasses, fast greens and beautiful natural scenery, what a way to spend a day. As far as golf vacations go, Gullane No.1 just has to be up there.
