A Local Final Qualifying Course for the Open Championship, Dunbar is a beautiful links course that was laid out back in 1856 and has been touched through the years by great names such as Old Tom Morris, Ben Sayers and James Braid. A little known fact is that Dunbar actually hosted the first PGA Championship on the European Tour in 1968, an event that is now widely associated with the Wentworth Club and now goes by the name of the BMW PGA Championship, the flagship event of the tour. With its rich history, this links does not disappoint. It follows a fairly narrow strips of linksland with the winds from the sea providing the defences at times. What it lacks in modern day length at around 6,500 yards it makes up for with bags of charm.
