Lothian and Borders, now known as “Scotland’s Golf Coast,” has over 20 golf courses in East Lothian and over 30 across the Borders. 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 and hidden treasures, such as The Open and Scottish Open courses at Muirfield and Gullane respectively, 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 links await every level of golfer in Lothian and Borders. From 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. A short drive will bring you into Borders Country where you can find hidden gems, such as Eyemouth and Duns, which will require a less demanding challenge for golfers. Finally, continuing south, you will find Dumfries and Galloway with over 30 courses nestled in the beautiful and peaceful county.
With so many options, we recommend at least a three-night stay to fully enjoy a broad golf tour and take in the scenery of the forests and coastlines.
