North Berwick Golf Club, established in 1832, is surpassed only by St. Andrews' Old Course for the length of time the game has been played on the same spot under the same management. Situated on the Firth of Forth with a spectacular panorama looking out on Bass Rock and Craigleith Island, The West Links—the club's other nine is designed for children—is a superb, classic links layout. The standout among the uniformly fine holes is the renowned par 3 15th, which is copied on many courses in the US (for example Shinnecock's 17th), is a Redan that Bernard Darwin has described as "a beautiful one-shot hole atop a platform with a bunker short of the green, to the left, and another further on to the right, so we must vary our mode of attack according to the wind." The landscape is enlivened by dips and rises, rock walls and some imposing bunkers.

Playing at North Berwick earlier this year has been such an amazing day !! It started with a walk down the streets of Edinburgh with my bag on the back and a train ride. The adventure was already great even before my first shot. All people at the club really made me feel very welcome, thumb up to all of them ! The West Links is a really really great track !! A lot of nice holes, some pretty quirky on the back nine, but I really loved all of them. Holes #13-16 stretch is one of the most memorable I ever played. Cherry on the cake, I played very well that day, including 3 birdies ! I can't recommend highly enough !!
