Where2Golf says: 

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."

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
