  • 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.

    A neat and tricky ocean course close to the city center. Not a very long golfcourse but still a good test with small elevation changes and some tall fescue grass earing up errant tee shots. The clubhouse has similarities to St. Andrews.
