Day 2 Golf at Gullane No 1 Course
There are 3 fantastic golf courses as part of Gullane GC. Gullane No.1 is voted one of the top 100 golf courses in the world and one of the top 20 courses in Scotland. Home to the 2015 Scottish Open, won by Rickie Fowler, Gullane No.1 requires a variety of uphill and downhill shot-making. Located near Muirfield, Gullane No. 1 is definitely a golf experience not to miss.
Day 3 Golf at Dunbar Golf Club
Golf has been played in and around the ancient town of Dunbar since the 17th century. The club though wasn’t formed until 1856 when 15 holes were laid out. It was later extended to 18 with the help of Old Tom Morris. The course is mainly links (the first 3 holes are more parkland) before you set over a narrow strip of land where the wind is a constant challenge and the sea comes into play on the back nine. It is not a long course but is most entertaining especially as you hug the coast on the back nine. Well worth its 32nd ranking in Scotland.
Day 4 Golf at Gullane No 2 Course
Gullane’s 3 courses sit on hallowed turf on and around Gullane Hill. Number 2 course runs alongside No. 1 for the first seven holes. With challenge and charm in equal doses, No. 2 is a favourite with those who enjoy their golf with a twist in its tail. Gullane hosted the 2015 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July 2015 over a Championship composite course of Gullane No. 1 and No. 2.
Day 5 Golf at The Glen (North Berwick)
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 6 Departure
A quiet and leisurely start to the day with breakfast available throughout the morning. Check-out is at midday before heading for home
