East Lothian is known as "The Golf Coast" due to the magnificent links courses on offer. These include Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar, Craigielaw and both the West Links at North Berwick and the Glen course.

Choose from the lovely Lodges at Craigielaw Golf Club, the 4 Star Macdonald Holyrood Hotel in the city of Edinburgh or the fabulous 5 Star Greywalls at Muirfield, Gullane.

You may either book this at it stands or have us customise it to your particular requirements. These tours are only to give you an idea what is available for your budget.

We also offer a chauffeured transport option.  

GOLF COURSE SELECTION

Craigielaw

Craigielaw Golf Club located on the East Lothian Coast near to Muirfield and Gullane is one of the relatively new links golf courses in Scotland. The course was designed by the highly acclaimed golf architect Donald Steel and a great addition to the more established East Lothian golf courses. Craigielaw golf course and the onsite accommodation both offer spectacular views over the Firth of Forth to Kingdom of Fife.

Dunbar

Dunbar Golf Club is located on the eastern end of Scotland's Golf Coast which also also boasts magnificent golf courses such as Murfield, Gullane, North Berwick and Craigielaw. Dunbar, established in 1856 is an Open Championship Final Qualifying Venue. Not overly long at 6,500 yards, it lies yards from the rocky shoreline and has well defined holes that follow the natural contours of the narrow strip of land that lies between the shoreline and Deer Park. Dunbar hosted the first European Tour PGA Championship, now held annually at Wentworth Golf Club.

Glen Golf Club is the East Links at North Berwick with the West Links being North Berwick Golf Club. Located just 25 miles east of the capital city of Edinburgh, in the town of North Berwick.

Muirfield

Muirfield and Open Championship venue is one of the best golf courses in Scotland and reckoned to be the fairest of all the Open venues. It has hosted the Open on 16 occasions and is home to the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. It is also one of the most difficult golf courses in Scotland to obtain a tee tim as tee times for visitors are restricted to handicaps of 18 and in addition only a few tee times are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
