Golf has been played in the Gullane area since at least 1650, and the club has three superb courses ready and waiting to wow the visitor. Each of them has its own unique character, and whichever one you choose to play you can be sure of a wonderful experience. Gullane No. 1, the oldest of the three, has hosted Open Championship qualifiers and Scottish Opens for both the men and women.
One of the more intimidating holes on No. 1 is the second, also known, appropriately, as Windygate. It’s difficult despite only having one bunker, in part because the fairway climbs rather steeply to a narrow green. Accuracy is the key, especially if you aren’t a good player out of the rough. On the tee box, take your time, breathe deeply and keep that swing smooth!
Gullane No. 2 and No. 3 are equally impressive, so you may want to include them all on your itinerary. No. 2 runs alongside No. 1 for several holes, while No. 3 has some stunning views across Aberlady Bay. All visitors can also make use of the exceptional practice facilities to be found here, so get ready to hone your skills before savouring an exceptional round of golf.
The area surrounding Gullane is a popular spot for tourists, so you’ll have plenty to explore if you have a day off during your trip. You could choose to head into Edinburgh and explore this historic city, for example, or you may want to stay local and enjoy Gullane Beach, North Berwick and Dunbar. Muirfield, one of the world’s most famous golf clubs, is also close by.

Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.
It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well. Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows. As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations. And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable. Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.
We loved our trip. If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green. Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special.
Thanks again for a fantastic trip !
We look forward to the next one !
We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!
Dear Lynda Yes we got the bag tags, thank you very much. And thank you for the great organisation. Everything went absolutely smoothly and even though we had a bit of an adventurous journey home with flight delays and cancellations we returned home with many great memories of a fantastic trip.
We will get in touch when we plan our return trip.
Kind regards Fiete
Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!
Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise
I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.
Hi Lynda & Stuart,
First, back home safe & sound.
From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!
Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed
Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.
When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.
Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way
We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!
My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.
Thanks for these photos, they are great.
All my best and thanks from my entire family,
