Gullane, 18 holes played from three magnificent courses

26th Oct, 2021 by The Caddie

Earlier this summer our colleagues at bunkered came up with the idea to take a trip to Gullane. Play 18 holes from three of its magnificent courses.  Find out how the team got on with their composite layout at Gullane featuring 6 holes from each course. 

Golf has been played at Gullane, East Lothian for more than 350 years. Set on Scotland’s Golf Coast https://scotlandsgolfcoast.com/, less than 20 miles from Edinburgh City centre, Gullane is a former host of the men and women’s Scottish Open. The bunkered team played the 18 holes a Gullane from the three brilliant courses.

Why are the golf courses at Gullane named 1, 2 and 3? The numbers quite simply reflect their age. 

Gullane No. 1 (1884) has a long history of hosting national and international championship golf events, including the 2018 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open and Ladies Scottish Open, the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in 2015 as well as Local Final Qualifying for The Open Championship at neighbouring Muirfield.  

Gullane No. 2 (1898) was laid out by the legendary Willie Park Jr and has also been used for Open Championship Qualifying as well as the Seniors Open Amateur. 

Gullane No. 3 (1910) was also designed by Willie Park Jr. It may be the shortest of the three courses, but it provides a wonderful test based on shot-making skills rather than power. 

Gullane offers a unique range of golfing experiences for members and visitors alike, combining a major role in the history of golf in Scotland, great golfing conditions, and a truly spectacular environment. 

Thank you to Gullane Golf Club and Club Professional Alasdair Good [ for their support in making this happen.
