Where2Golf says: 

The Glen Golf Club: The tough climb at the par-4 first will not just clear your lungs, it also brings you to an elevated level above the sea, where you'll play most of the holes on North Berwick's wonderful "East Links". The views here are simply stunning, whether they be back across the town and towards North Berwick's pudding-shaped hill (called The Law), or over to the ruins of Tantallon Castle (from the 8th tee) or out across the Firth of Forth to the imposing Bass Rock, a view you'll enjoy from most holes. The blind par-3 13th is one of those holes to cherish - a little jewel, which may require a pitching-wedge or a 3-iron depending on what the wind is doing. Short maybe, but don't miss this gem of a course - Pebble Beach without the glitz and glam, and a par-4 18th to match anything at Pebble !

Did you know?

Golf was first played in North Berwick on the East Links (known as Rhodes Links) as far back as the late 1600s. The first official record of golf activity is contained in the town's Council Minutes in 1728. A private 9-hole course was laid out in 1894, but when the popularity of golf boomed in the late 1800s, an extension to 18-holes was inevitable. In 1906 the 18-hole course designed by James Braid and Ben Sayers was opened for play, and Glen Golf Club was constituted. | Never far from view from the course is the impressive Bass Rock, one of the world's most renowned bird sanctuaries.
