Longniddry Golf Club overview
Longniddry Golf Course overview
A par-68 measuring 6260 yards off the back tees, Longniddry is a shorter course but has a unique design that combines woodlands with links. There are no par-5s, however, with eight par-4s that are over 400 yards long, the course plays longer than the indicated yardage due to the hilly terrain, strategically placed bunkers and mature pine trees.
There is also plenty of gorse and rough that punishes any wayward shots, which can be commonplace when playing into the prevailing wind. The fairways are generous and the greens large, so you will be rewarded if you plot your way around carefully.
The 314-yard par-4 5th hole called ‘Cadell’s Neuk’ is a great risk/reward hole for big hitters. Accuracy is required (as well as length) off the tee, otherwise, your approach will be difficult. Offline left there are bunkers, trees and thick rough, whilst missing the fairway right leaves you with a fearsome chip to a two-tiered elevated green.
