Gullane Golf Club (No.3 Course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1910

Gullane Golf Club (No.3 Course): The third of Gullane's three centenarians, this is the youngest and shortest of the courses at Gullane. Like its older and grander siblings (the No.1 and No.2 courses), the No.3 provides a good test of golf on classic open links terrain.

Although only 5,252 yards from the tips, with a par of 68, the level of golfing challenge will be closely correlated to the strength of the wind on any given day. The three opening and three closing holes are laid out on flattish links land on the clubhouse side of the A198, with the remaining holes running through the lowest elevations of Gullane Hill. Many holes run parallel to and rub shoulders with those of neighbouring Luffness New Golf Club.

Although towering sand dunes are not in evidence, other characteristics of enjoyable links golf are here in abundance, not least excellent fast draining turf, penal rough beyond the fairways, pot bunkering and top-quality greens. Straight hitting onto the relatively narrow gently undulating fairways will serve you better than wayward big-hitting. Accurate approach play is also needed, to hit the small and lightly pot-bunker defended greens.

Did you know?

The princely sum of £1,000 is apparently what it cost to construct Gullane's No.3 course back in 1910. | Gullane is pronounced Gull'n, rather than "Gull'ain" or "Goo'lane."
