This is a fantastic links course well worth playing. The course is not the longest but it seems to me to be built in a similar style to the old course at St Andrews. It is, therefore, quite challenging in windy conditions and its greens are tricky.

The stunning vistas that North Berwick Golf Club is famous for are clear for all to see from the opening hole, a short par-4 of 342 yards off the white tees, with a green framed by the sea to the 18th hole which encourages you to play towards to the sea to avoid an expensive errant tee-shot to the right-hand side. At just 277 yards the closing hole is a very scorable final test, and as we all know a closing birdie is the best way to enjoy the 19th hole.
