Throughout

the world there are many wonderful highways made famous by their proximity to major golf destinations. Among the most obvious is the legendary 17-Mile Drive on California’s Monterey Peninsula, where you’ll encounter the famous Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach Golf Links or the 60 mile long Grand Strand, encompassing the Myrtle Beach area on South Carolina’s coastline. But can anywhere compete with the depth, variety and quality of golf courses available along East Lothian’s A198. Travelling east, the A198 begins just a mile from the course at Royal Musselburgh and continues along the coastal route through the pristine villages and towns of Longniddry, Aberlady, Gullane, Dirleton and North Berwick, before joining the A199 beyond Whitekirk. The road, which runs for marginally over 20 miles, contains some of the world’s finest golfing linksland. Here you’ll find an amazing 15 courses, almost linking with each other along the Firth of Forth. Many familiar names, such as Gullane and North Berwick Golf Club, often host major international championships including Final Qualifying, when the Open Championship is played over East Lothian’s most famous links, Muirfield, home to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. Stunning vistas along the coastline further enhance the spectacular courses. The 360-degree panoramic view from the 7th tee on Gullane’s No.1 course is often described as “the best view in golf”. The beautiful coastal surroundings are also a feature when playing at Longniddry, Kilspindie, Craigielaw, Luffness New, North 2


INTRODUCTION

GLEN 16TH GREEN AND THE BASS ROCK

Berwick, Whitekirk and the Glen, whose elevated location offers wonderful views of the Bass Rock. The A198’s historic, established courses have been complimented by recent additions, as East Lothian’s offering continues to improve. Craigielaw, which opened in 2001, has already hosted many prestigious events and along with North Berwick, hosted Final Qualifying for the 2007 Senior British Open Championship at Muirfield. Located between Gullane and Dirleton, within Archerfield Estate, are East Lothian’s newest gems. The private clubs at Archerfield Links and The Renaissance Club at Archerfield, offer world-class havens for members and their guests. But golf in East Lothian is not confined to the A198. The county possess some fabulous courses close to the recently upgraded A1. Here you encounter the classic links laid out by Old Tom Morris at Dunbar, the short but testing course along the headland at Winterfield, one of James Braid’s best designs at Musselburgh Golf Club, the world’s oldest played course at Musselburgh Links and the beautiful parkland courses at Haddington, Gifford and Castle Park. So there you have it… a great selection of world-class courses, spectacular vistas, friendly welcoming clubhouses, a great variety of accommodation and outstanding restaurants all within a 30-minute drive of each other. It is a dream location for visiting golfers, with no need to waste valuable time driving from course to course, packing and unpacking, checking in and out of hotels. Evidence indeed that the best drives in golf do not always need to be long and straight. 3

Royal Musselburgh he Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, founded in 1774, originally played over the famous 9 hole links course at Levenhall, Musselburgh. In 1926 the move was made to the present location at Prestongrange House, Prestonpans. This engaging parkland course was designed by James Braid and affords wonderful vistas over Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. The front nine provides a fair challenge, but beware the ‘sting in the tail’; the final third of the course can make or break a score. The tough four hole stretch from the long par four 13th includes the ‘gully’ a par 3 (14th) where to be short is to court disaster, followed by one of the best par fours in the Lothians. From the medal tee at the 15th, huddled tight beside the trees to the left, a precision drive is required to find the rollercoasting fairway. From there a long iron is played over an uphill approach to a tilting green. Royal Musselburgh has in its possession a silver cup, known as the ‘Old Club Cup’. dating from 1774. This is the oldest cup in the world still played for competitively today. The club were privileged to host the World Junior Open in July 2002.
