Golf Course/
Gullane No. 2

The No 2 Course at Gullane was built at the end of the 19th century to accommodate the increasing numbers of golfers wanting to play on the Gullane links.

The golf here is more hilly than at many of Scotlands classic links venues because of the Gullane Hill, a huge mass of basalt rock which trapped the sand blown from Aberlady Bay and eventually stabilised into the undulating links terrain of today.

The course runs alongside Gullane No.1 for the first seven holes and then sweeps down to the nature reserve next to Aberlady Bay, before turning back towards the visitor’s clubhouse.

One feature of the course is its excellent short holes, particularly the 11th with its magnificent view and tricky club selection. Probably the toughest hole is the superb par 4 fourth, where the second shot must clear an array of cavernous bunkers ranged in front of the undulating putting surface - a par is always an achievement here!

The favourite of many locals, Gullane 2 hosted the 2002 Seniors Open Amateur Championship. The course runs down Gullane Hill towards the nature reserve at Aberlady Bay. Although this links has plenty of length it is the testing short holes that offer the greatest challenge.
