North Berwick Golf Club
Edinburgh & East Lothian, Scotland
North Berwick Golf Club overview
The stretch of three holes from number 13 to 15 are what the West Links is best known for. The 13th is called ‘Pit’ and is a short par-4 requiring an imaginative shot to a sunken green behind a wall. 14 is called ‘Perfection’ and as the name suggests, requires two perfect shots to hit the green. Be sure to look across to Bass Rock which is home to one of the world’s largest gannet populations. ‘Redan’ is the name given to 15, which is a testing par-3 with a vast hidden gully at the front right of the large, steeply sloping green.
Did You Know?
North Berwick also has a 9-hole par-3 children’s course called The Wee Course, which was established in 1888 as the ‘Ladies’ Links’. Green fees are kept to a minimum to encourage children to take up the game, and adults are also allowed to play it…but only if accompanied by a child.
