This was a very disappointing course given that the cost of the golf package was expensive. This is like an average parkland club that I could have played locally in Cambridgeshire for a midweek rate of around £25. They also only had 16 holes open and didn’t think this was a problem, so poor customer service. We did however independently organise an extra game on Gullane 2 for £46, which was far far superior to Longniddry.
As one of the most popular links courses in East Lothian, Longniddry Golf Club is a good option to include on your next golf tour in Scotland.
Located within easy reach of Edinburgh and the abundance of golf courses that line the famed East Lothian coastline, Longniddry is a Harry Colt design that has welcomed golfers for over 100 years.
Measuring a modest 6,260 yards from the back tees, this par-68 layout utilises the natural undulations and coastline to create an excellent test of golf. With a mixture of holes being played through mature pine forest as well as those running along the coast make for a memorable day on the course for visiting golfers.
With a history that dates back to Mary Queen of Scots, who was said to be keen on playing at Longniddry in the 1560s, while the course might have changed, the pedigree of links turf is unquestionable.
