If you have experienced St Andrews and Carnoustie, then its time to round off the east coast by getting to know the fantastic golfing options around Edinburgh and the Lothians. After spending a day exploring the capital city’s famous castle, Royal Mile and New Town, there is an option to suit every golfer; if the comprehensive leisure facilities of a resort are important, then Dalmahoy, near the airport to the west of Edinburgh, comes highly recommended, and has hosted the Solheim Cup among other great honours.
If a first class spa to ease the strains of the links sounds appealing, then the MacDonald Marine Hotel, which borders North Berwick Golf Club, is the ideal golf and relaxation partnership. While you are there, be sure to experience the array of golfing gems which are littered along the East Lothian shoreline – one after the next, great names like Gullane and North Berwick are interspersed with undiscovered gems like Craigielaw, Kilspindie and Longniddry. While Fife, Angus and Ayshire hog most of the limelight, the rich and diverse landscape of Edinburgh and the Lothians remains relatively untapped, and is waiting to provide you an unforgettable golf break.
