From Clubhouse to Clubhouse this smacks of class. The East Lothian coast is a golfing mecca… you could easily spend a fortnight there and play a different but excellent course every day. The course itself was immaculate today.
This was my second visit but the first time playing Gullane No. 1 and it was a delight. Although a links course, the “hill” is a particular feature from the get-go. Indeed, Gullane 1 may have the greatest elevation changes of any Scottish links… though I stand to be corrected. Walking the course for an old fella was at times rather oxygen sapping… perhaps a power cart may have been smart!
The first may be a soft opening but after that, superb hole after superb hole. The par 3s were all exceptional.
Loved this place. Gullane 1 may get lost in the shadow of its famous neighbour but it is a great championship course in its own right having hosted may marquee tournaments over the years. Would love to play the other Gullane courses one day.
