Dunbar

Dunbar is a championship standard coastal links which has featured as an Open Final Qualifying course, as well as hosting a number of national amateur and professional events.

Challenging and scenic, the Dunbar East Links was originally laid out in 1856 with the current course being influenced by redesigns by Old Tom Morris, Ben Sayers and James Braid.

At a little over 6,500 yards this is not the longest of championship courses but it is one that demands careful club selection and shot making rather than power hitting. The ever present wind from the sea has a strong impact on how each hole should be approached, as do the carefully positioned bunkers. At times the course is just yards of the rocky shore. Holes 4 to 17 run along a narrow strip of land by the Firth of Forth. Dunbar is considered amongst Scotland's best golf links.

This part of Scotland, East Lothian, is also known as the Cradle of Golf. There are almost 400 years of documented golf at Dunbar and one of the game's oldest recorded organisations, the Dunbar Golfing Society, played on the western side of the town as far back as 1794.
