Edinburgh and East Lothian has over 25 links and parkland golf courses around our country’s capital city and along “Scotland’s Golf Coast”. Due to its even climate, it is a great location for golfers to play golf all year round. Come enjoy the challenges and experiences that await you in this beautiful and coastal area of Scotland any time throughout the year.
The mix of championship courses including The Open and Scottish Open courses at Muirfield and Gullane respectively, as well as the many hidden treasures, will give every skill level in your group a challenge while still enjoying the scenery of your golf tour. Muirfield is known as being one of the first courses to have 9 holes clockwise and 9 holes anticlockwise. Gullane is known for its dramatic coastal views and was the site of Rickie Fowler’s Scottish Open victory in 2015.
From the Championship venues listed above to the beautiful courses located on Scotland’s Golf Coast, fantastic golf awaits every level of golfer in Edinburgh and East Lothian. From the historic and highly respected West Course at North Berwick to Dunbar, which was designed by James Braid, to Kilspindie, which is a hidden gem that offers a more unique and fun option, each course offers its own challenges and experiences. Surrounding Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh, some beautiful parkland courses are laid out to give you a break from windy links!
