Get a taste of history at Dunbar Golf Club, where the traditional links have been battled since 1856. Dunbar makes a good destination for a day devoted to golf, with a clubhouse, restaurant, practice facilities and pro shop. On a take-your-breath-away landscape, take on a course where all of the major Scottish Championships have been played.

The par-71, 6,597-yard golf course offers three par 5s, including the monster 506-yard ninth hole, Longbanks. Year-round, these North Sea links offer the total golf experience on this narrow strip that runs along a rocky beach, bordered by the Old Deer Park wall. Battling the sea wind to hit the well defined holes following the coastal contours guaranteed a new experience every round. Light breezes transform the course into a serious challenge.

Dunbar Golf Club management suggests a visit to the clubhouse afterward: "The malt selection is almost as daunting as the doglegging 382-yard seventh hole."

    Spectacular scenery with tee boxes and greens set right on the coastline. A good amount of challenge, but not overly tough to the first-timer here, as there is good visibility of what's in front of you. A wonderfully friendly club to visitors, too.
