Where2Golf says: 

Dunbar Golf Club: A stone wall separates the first three holes (and the 18th) from the rest of the course, but that's the only thing to break the uninterrupted sea views you'll enjoy on this excellent links course. For much of the time you're standing on the sea's edge - often trying to cope with whatever wind and weather it throws at you. The layout is characterised by flattish fairways (rather than big sand dunes), along with superb greens, many "hidden" bunkers and an overall high standard of upkeep and presentation. The terrain gets a little more interesting with the blind drive at the par-5 9th, although for the next three holes a cement factory contrasts dramatically with the natural splendour of the sea and the impressive lighthouse. Play at Dunbar and you'll remember those fabulous sea views and the stone wall. You'll probably also wonder at how Old Tom Morris created such a marvellous links golf course on the narrow strip of land between the two.
