Golf Course/
Longniddry

Formed in 1921, Longniddry Golf Club in East Lothian, the cradle of golf, is situated on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, arguably the finest stretch of golfing coastline in Scotland, 18 miles east of Edinburgh.

Longniddry is the closest seaside course to Edinburgh, comprising an unusual combination of woodland and links, with spectacular sea views from many holes.

Designed by Harry S. Colt, with no par-5s and eight par-4s measuring over 400 yards, Longniddry offers a very good test of golf and enjoys spectacular views of the Firth of Forth, to the hills of Fife and westwards to the Edinburgh skyline.

Essentially, Longniddry is a pleasant mix of links and parkland.  it can be extremely hard to put a decent score together. Hence the reason it remains an Open Chhampionship qualifier.

The course has a par of 68 and amateur Mike Thomson of Peebles set the course record of 62. Formerly an Open qualifying course, Longniddry is regularly asked to host amateur championships and recently hosted a 54-hole tournament for the Senior Pro-golf Tour.
