Gullane Golf Club's No. 1 course, one of several East Lothian golf courses, might get lost in the shadow of its famous neighbors, if it weren't such a great championship course in its own right. Gullane No. 1 is an Open qualifying course and jointly hosted the 1998 British Amateur Championship, won by Sergio Garcia. Over the years, Gullane has hosted the British Boys Championships, the Youths Championship, the Scottish Strokeplay, and the British Ladies Championship.

The first hole, a fairly benign par-4, requires only a solid drive and a short iron for the approach. Don't get false confidence: the second might be the course's hardest, with a tight tee shot, uphill-all-the-way play, and frequent wind. Take in the view of the village of Gullane from the 17th tee, and finish off the 350-year-old golf course.

Gullane Golf Club welcomes more than 30,000 visiting golfers per year, and the clubhouse provides ample refreshment; for bar food and a pub vibe, hit up the nearby The Auld Clubhouse.

    Tough to find much better in East Lothian, the links just gets better as the round goes on, especially around the back part of the course from No. 7 thru 11.

    The most unique aspect to this links is the volcanic hill that makes part of the course classic, low-lying links, with other holes playing on the steep hill.

    Keep your fingers crossed for some sunshine when you get to the 7th tee, one of the greatest vistas in golf.

    A very good course. We had a great time there. We were fortunate enough to have a drink in the clubhouse with famous golf historian Mr. Archie Baird after our round. The course was in very good condition; hole 2 is a classic uphill par four, while hole 7 affords quite possibly the best view in all of golf. I was fortunate enough to secure a birdie at the par five 12th, and standing on the tee at 17, you'll feel like you can drive the ball 400 yards!
