Cannot praise too highly the maintenance & condition of Dunbar. Greens, fairways, tees, even rough is in perfect condition. No mean feat in a Scottish winter. For those who might wonder---we are never on winter greens at Dunbar! ps. Many thanks for the extra couple of yards of semi on the left of the 14th.
Dunbar steeped in history and an Open qualifying course. Not a modern clubhouse nor the quirky pro shop but for me makes the food and beer taste that much more real, and gives a character all of its own. The course is easy walking with fantastic views of Bass Rock, and the East Lothian golf coast. Playing off the Yellow tees gives the average golfer plenty of opportunitie…
First laid out in 1856 and redesigned over the years by the likes of Old Tom Morris, Ben Sayers and James Braid, Dunbar East Links has a page pedigree second to none. As befits such a gem of golf course architecture, it has played host to countless national and international championships. Well defined holes following the natural contours of a narrow strip of land between the old red sandstone deer park wall and the rocky shoreline are the hallmarks of these links. At a little over 6,500 yards, it is not the longest championship course, but any golfer thinking this equates to a lack of challenge will soon be put right. This is a course built upon those old fashioned golfing virtues of club selection and shot-making. With the ever-present – and ever-changing – wind off the sea, it demands accuracy and judgement, and rewards only bravery and skill.
