The West Links at North Berwick has been drawing golfers to its marvelously rumpled fairways for over 150 years. With its combination of gorgeous sea views, great holes and perfect links turf, North Berwick is a must play and ranked in the top 100 courses in the world.
For the golf history buff, the course is a veritable museum of golf holes. The ‘Redan’ 15th, a par 3 with its green sloping front to back and right to left, with a deep bunker guarding the left side, is one of the most copied holes in the world. Other holes with enticing names such as Perfection, Sea, and Biarritz provide plenty of challenge and interest, but perhaps the best word to describe North Berwick is FUN. It simply is the type of course where you want to putt out on 18 and proceed directly to the 1st tee to have another crack at it.
