    In the hotbed of golf that is East Lothian, just along the coast from the magnificent city of Edinburgh, is another classic links, the West course at North Berwick Golf Club. This charming and highly regarded links course has a sensational location, positioned at the point of the North Berwick peninsula allowing for breath-taking views of the Firth of Forth estuary as well as the islands of Bass Rock.

    Golf has been played on this weathered piece of land since the 17th century but the club officially formed in 1832 and its reputation has grown ever since. The championship layout is a stern test of golf as proven by being chosen to host Final Qualifying for The Open Championship as recently as 2013, as well as hosting numerous other reputable tournaments.

    The course is a classic 9 out and 9 in layout which features a number of interesting hazards including amongst others numerous walls across fairways and in-front of greens, all part of the club’s history and evolution. The clubhouse was renovated in 2008 and now provides ample changing facilities including a bar and dining room on the 1st floor offering superb views.

    A golf vacation to Scotland and in particular Edinburgh, has to include a trip to North Berwick Golf Club. The West course is firmly established as one of the Top 50 golf courses in the UK & Ireland and would be a welcome addition to any golf vacation itinerary.
