Dunbar, Scotland

 A narrow strip of golf heaven along the sea

A layout is a layout is a layout. They all look more or less the same. And then there is Dunbar. It’s a less a layout and more a narrow coastline lined with golf holes. If you want to play golf – seriously good golf! – by the sea, this is your place. It’s a tight course, wedged between the ocean and an old fieldstone wall. In one place it’s only yards wide. But when the the wind whipping through your hair as you play a mishit drive off the beach, you won’t want to be anywhere else.
