Where2Golf says: 

Gullane Golf Club (No.1 Course): Throughout your journey around Gullane No.1, you'll experience a fabulous links golf course that's home to many memorable holes. Also here in abundance are some of the finest views you'll enjoy from any layout, anywhere in Scotland.

After a short opening par-4, you embark on a five-hole ascent that gently takes you all the way up Gullane Hill. From the 7th tee at the top of the hill, the view is one of the most spectacular you'll enjoy on any Scottish golf course. Among the early holes, the par-4 2nd is a real gem, played to a narrow uphill gulley-like fairway, and then an approach to a dune-surrounded green. Gullane's open treeless terrain, with its uphill climbs and plunging downhillers, offers an unforgettable round of links golf, with breathtaking views over the Firth of Forth, the Lammermuir Hills inland to your south, and mighty Muirfield to the east.

Don't forget to keep your golf game going on the No.1 course, as well as admiring the views and taking pictures. The tightish fairways and green-surrounds are home to plenty of pot bunkers, cross bunkers and other assorted sand traps. When the wind blows, as it's been known to, the challenges increase, but so too might the indelible memories offered at Gullane. Definitely not a Lothian course to be missed.

Did you know?

Pronounced Gull'n, rather than "Gull'ain" or "Goo'lane," golf has been played on the Gullane links by many different golf clubs for well over 350 years. The oldest golf club that used the links as its home course was East Lothian GC (founded in the early 1800s). The oldest club in continuous existence and still playing on Gullane Hill is Dirleton Castle GC (founded 1854). A relative "newcomer" to the links, Gullane Golf Club dates from 1882. | Gullane No.1 has hosted many top level amateur and professional tournaments, and is one of the final qualifying courses for the Open Championship, when the world's oldest major is played at Muirfield. In 2015 Gullane No.1 hosted the Scottish Open Championship. For more details view Top Golf Tournaments at Gullane Golf Club, Course Nr. 1.
