Day 1 Play The Glen
In the 17th century golf was first played in North Berwick on these historic East Links. Originally laid out as a nine hole course in 1894, it was extended to 18 holes in 1906 with a design provided by James Braid and Ben Sayers. It sits at the other end of the town from it’s more famous neighbour (The West) but it still provides a great test, breathtaking views, a quite exquisite signature par 3 hole and a warm welcome.
Day 2 Play North Berwick West Links
The West Links at North Berwick GC is a remarkable golf course located on The Firth of Forth with stunning views across to Craigleith Island and Bass Rock, a huge granite outcrop that is home to 10% of the world’s population of Atlantic Gannets. Formed in 1832 it is the 13th oldest golf club in the world and the 3rd oldest course still playing over its original fairways. The other two being Musselburgh Old and St Andrew ‘s Old.
The original architect is unknown but it was originally 6 holes were extended to 18 in 1877. The 15th “Redan” (a military term meaning guarding parapet) is one of the world’s most famous (and copied) holes measuring 190 yds.
A unique and wonderful links course ranked in 16th in the UK and 49th in the world.
