|In North Berwick alone there are three 18-hole courses and
each one quite different. West Links is another wind-catcher, very natural and in
stupendous condition. Glen Golf Club is a totally different experience. The view across
the Forth Estuary to the Bass Rock are engaging from most points of the course. The newish
Whitekirk Golf Club is a couple of miles out of town and has high, rocky outcrops, deep
grassy hollows and distractingly fine views over the Firth of Forth.
The great golfing metropolis of Gullane, only
four miles along the coast, is literally surrounded by golf courses including the world
famous Muirfield. There are seven courses in all within a four-mile stretch. Gullane No's
1,2 and 3 all provide excellent golf with outstanding views from all courses.
Longniddry Golf Club, just along the coast,
where the grass is lush and in the distance from the 1st tee, tall pine trees turn it onto
a pleasant parkland.
