Gullane Golf Club - No. 3 Course
Gullane No. 3 course was also designed by Willie Park Jr. and was laid out in 1910. Since then, the course has matured to become a well-loved and respected course. The course has the benefit, like the other two courses at Gullane Golf Club, of having the excellent links turf and climate that makes golf a pleasure here all year round.
The course boasts some of the best views across Aberlady Bay to Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth which just adds to the atmosphere of this course. Although it is considered to be the easiest and shortest of the three, it is a course that requires accuracy and your full attention if you hope to score well. The course features everything that its sibling courses do including the challenge of strategic course management, fast and true greens and many bunkers that must be avoided. In order to score well on this course, you must focus on making accurate shots rather than long and powerful one which makes this an interesting and stern challenge if that isn’t what you are used to! If you are looking for a wonderfully scenic challenge of golf that will suit golfers of all abilities, then look no further than this very special course at Gullane Golf Club.
