Where2Golf says: 

Luffness New Golf Club: Next door neighbour to the three golf courses of Gullane GC, and straddling the A198 road into Gullane, Luffness New is an excellent quality links golf course. With one or two exceptions, notably going up "The Hill" at the blind par-4 7th, and marching down again at the wonderful par-4 8th, the course itself is relatively flat. The views onto the Firth of Forth are not as panoramic as on Gullane No1., but nevertheless you'll enjoy the pure simplicity of this classic links layout, the springy fairway turf and the wonderful greens. A touch on the short side with only one par-5, and bunkering and rough that is not too penalising, should encourage a good score, especially if the wind is not too strong. For women things are not so straightforward, there are no women's tees.

Did you know?

In 1894 several members of the original Luffness Golf Club (the world's 35th oldest club, instituted in 1867) decided to split away and form the Luffness New Golf Club. Members of the new offshoot commissioned Old Tom Morris to create their course, which was located alongside and just east (inland) of the original Luffness course.

A few years after Luffness New was established, members of the original Luffness Golf Club also felt the need to move from the original course (which is now a nature reserve immediately to the west of Luffness New and Gullane Golf Clubs). In 1898 Luffness Golf Club re-located to its new home in Aberlady, on links land bordering Craigielaw Farm, adjacent to the ruins of the former Kilspindie Castle. In 1899 the members of Luffness Golf Club voted in favour of re-naming their club as Kilspindie Golf Club.
