Golf in East Lothians and Edinburgh

No visit to Scotland is complete without a trip to the beautiful and historic capital, Edinburgh. The city combines a perfect balance of a medieval Old Town with Georgian New Town, delivering a memorable experience for all who pay it a visit. Extending along a 40-mile stretch of coastline, East Lothian has the official title as the sunniest part of Scotland, ideal for fair-weather golfers. There is a wealth of excellent tracks, so much so that the European Tour’s Scottish Open has become a regular resident in this part of the country. Clubs such as Gullane are praised for their quality links golf and from the seventh tee on Gullane’s first course there is a fantastic view of the surrounding Edinburgh and Fife areas, including the Forth Bridges. Craigielaw, Dunbar, North Berwick and Dalmahoy offer just a taste of the other great courses that the Lothians has to offer. With so many magnificent opportunities to test out your game at a convenient distance from Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh, there is no underestimating the allure of the Lothian region.
