North Berwick Golf Club
North Berwick, Scotland
a magic-filled journey back to the origins of golf
There are few courses like the West Links at North Berwick. Few that are older and few that are more fun. Few that are quirky and few that have had the influence of this seaside links 30 miles east of Edinburgh. This is a different sort of golf. With crazy greens, greens defended by stone walls and all sort of features you’d never see on a modern course, North Berwick is not like other courses. It’s better.
