West Links Rd,
Gullane, East Lothian EH31 2BB
18 holes. Seaside links. Gently undulating terrain - easy to walk.
The three 18-hole courses at Gullane Golf Club are: No.1 Course (par-71; 6,466 yds from back tees); No.2 Course (par-71; 6,244 yds); No.3 course (par-68; 5,252 yds).
18 miles NE of Edinburgh
From the A1 / A720 (city ring road) interchange (Old Craighall Junction) east of Edinburgh, travel east on the A1 direction Berwick-upon-Tweed. After 4.5 miles turn off the A1 at the Bankton Junction. Follow the A198 direction North Berwick. After 9 miles (passing through Longniddry and Aberlady) Gullane's clubhouse is on your right.
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.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, day tickets, combination tickets, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
Soft spikes preferred. Players generally walk this course. Caddies available (if pre-booked).
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."
