Months before traveling to Scotland for the 1st time, I began researching courses to play. The highlight was experiencing North Berwick Golf Club. From the moment we approached the front door to the clubhouse to the ride our caddy offered back to our bed and breakfast, it truly was an experience of a lifetime. The course is simply magical -...

We loved this course. It runs along side the ocean, the breezes were manageable, the course had a lot of character and I played well, which makes it easy to like. lol We played 6 course in 7 days and this was one of my favorites.

I walked by North Berwick with a colleague one day prior to playing there and we were less than impressed initially with what we saw. The pins looked short and we were of the opinion it was a seaside public course. Sure enough, this was the course we were set to play the next day in very strong winds. With... More

I have been very fortunate and played some stunning courses worldwide, but the West Links is a real gem! The scenery is stunning and the course provides a true test requiring the player to consider every shot carefully and use some imagination along the way. We felt very welcome from arrival to departure and the clubhouse clearly demonstrates a rich... More

Add this to your golf agenda if you are looking for an great value and a very interesting course. Totally different than the St. Andrews courses... more elevation and frankly more beautiful with several holes on the water. Great caddies- definitely take one so you know how to navigate the course!

North Berwick Golf club is how golf used to be with natural features used to make some quirky and famous holes. There are two or three holes that have been copied the world over and are great fun to play. Nowhere near as penal as Muirfield. The welcome is extraordinary and visitors are welcomed.

Went with 8 golfers..most of us have played all over the world and it was the second trip to NBGC for many of us. This is an old old course and provides challenges for golfers of all skill levels.. Not a course that my wife would promise to kill me if I ever brought her there again. The original Redan... More

My friends and I take four days a year to travel all over the UK to play top quality courses. St Andrews, Norfolk, Cornwall, The West Coast (Turnberry) etc. Our experiences are, by in large, very positive and we go away with happy memories. It’s not often that I will take time to feedback on my experiences. In fact this... More

A group of 12 played North Berwick yesterday and it was a great experience. We were greeted warmly as we got off the bus and loved every minute. The starter was great as were our caddies. The course was a treat and you should try to play it. Many overlook it as it has not been on the Rota, but... More

The North Berwick Golf Club course is the fantastic West Links. I had some of the finest holes in Scotland and superb views over the Firth of Forth. The Clubhouse is a beautiful building and the service and food is first class.
