Longniddry

The East Lothian coast is known best for its links courses, so Longniddry offers an interesting alternative, being a mix of tree-lined parkland holes and links holes. This is the closest seaside golf course to Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh.

The first half of the course features the more enclosed parkland section before opening up after the 11th, when the wind also becomes more of a challenge to the golfer. The course may have no par 5 holes and be a par 68, but it still presents a strong challenge with 8 par 4s measuring over 400 yards, many large raised greens and links style approaches.

The original golf course was laid out by Harry S Colt. After the second world war, during which time, as with many Scottish courses, part of the land had been ploughed up for food production, Phillip Mackenzie Ross was brought in to restore the full golf course. Donald Steel has since made further refinements, including changes to the bunkering.

Longniddry was formerly a Final Qualifying course for the Open Championship and regularly hosts amateur competitions.
