The East Lothian region in Scotland provides one of the great clusters of quality links courses in the world, many of which are world renowned. And it is all conveniently located an hour from Edinburgh airport allowing relatively easy access from all over the globe.
Those interested in the history of the game can visit Musselburgh Links ( 1672 ) where Mary Queen of Scots is reputed to have played...
Here you can hire hickory clubs and play the ancient links.
Muirfield is famous for hosting the Open Championship, and is generally regarded as one of the ten best courses on the planet.
Nth Berwick's West Links is one of my favourite courses anywhere and Gullane No 1 recently hosted the Scottish championship...
Renaissance Club, adjacent to Muirfield, is new- but is a championship course in waiting, and Luffness New, Kilspindie, Gullane no 2 are real quality links courses.
