The Renaissance Club


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   The Renaissance Club Est. 2008

Where2Golf says: 

The Renaissance Club: Joining a small but growing number of American-influenced (and owned) golf courses in the UK, the Renaissance Club is operated as a private facility, only accessible to its members and their guests. The membership, which is drawn from wealthy golfers spread around the globe, enjoy a top-quality championship course, masterfully sculpted by renowned American designer Tom Doak.

Located on the Archerfield estate, with the two Archerfield Links courses to its east, and mighty Muirfield on its west flank, the Renaissance layout was largely carved out of 300 acres of coastal pine forest. The resulting course flows through a rather mixed environment, with some tree-lined stretches interspersed with others that are distinctly more linksy, and which exude the classic characteristics of open duneland golf.

The natural-looking bunkering, firm fairways, classic linksy rough and some huge roller-coaster greens all combine to fully test your game. After a more inland front-six loop, the layout majestically pushes out towards the Firth of Forth at the par-5 7th, with a stretch of holes as good as any in Scotland, finishing at the par-5 13th. The wonderful short par-3 11th will undoubtedly become one of the most photographed holes on the Lothian coast.
