Gullane Links

Day 4
Play at Gullane No 2          Established 1898
Set on the shores of the Firth of Forth in beautiful East Lothian, Gullane offers three superb links courses, Gullane1, 2 and 3. Gullane No.1 frequently hosts final qualifying for the British Open when at Muirfield and has hosted many major amateur events. You will encounter tight fairways, pot bunkers, rough, gorse thickets and well guarded greens which make playing here a fair but serious challenge. Nowhere on the course do the panorama views get better than from the top of Gullane hill and the 7th tee, described by renowned writer Bernard Darwin as “one of the best views in golf” on a clear day one can see for miles with the Lammermuir Hills, Firth of Forth and the Bass Rock making up the stunning panorama. Gullane with 300 years of history is a “must play” for all golfers’
