Still Great In 2011

Played in June 2011 on a wonderfull sunny day. The whole experience was magnificent with a fantastic test of golf in superb surroundings. Even managed a couple of wild deer wandering around the 7th green.

Played It In 05

Back in 2005 a group of eight of us came over for The Open and to play golf. We played Gullane #1,2,and 3, Dunbar and North Berwick. By far Gullane #1 was the favorite of everyone in the group. We had handicaps from 24-2 and everyone enjoyed it. All the courses we played were great but When I come back in the next few years. Gullane #1 will be on the list.

I played Gullane No. 1 last June as my first course on a trip to Scotland. It was one of the most memorable golf days of my life -- a beautiful course, a very challenging layout, all in very good condition. Highly recommended! (Note, be careful trying to drive the green on 17 -- it's much harder than it looks...)

I played the course the monday after the 2000 Open Championship at St. Andrews. Not only is the course outstanding, but the experience of playing Gullane #1 is something you'll never forget. The weather changed about 4 times during the round which added to the flavor of the whole round. Links golf at it's best, but then there's so many courses in Scotland I haven't played yet. A camera is a must for Gullane. The small pieces of seashells in the bunkers were a nice touch.The course is so different from America's parkland courses, you get the feeling that you're playing real golf.The only drawback may be that too many Americans will be on the course, and your round may take a little longer than normal for a Scottish course.
