Golf has been played at North Berwick for centuries but like a number of the small towns in East Lothian it is a unique place with a character all it’s own. Today it is very much a suburban enclave for professional people who work in Edinburgh, the train connection which is under a half hour makes this an easy place to bring up a family in an environment with all the perks of a big city without the urban anxieties.
The West Links Golf Club dates back to 1832 and the place has all the attributes of a old school distinguished Scottish links.

There were volcanic eruptions in Scotland creating notable land forms

North Berwick…come for the revered links golf..but take time to borrow a child and play the pitch and putt, stroll the town for some shopping and a gelato, or make time for a tasty piece of Scottish salmon or a fine plate of pasta. North Berwick is a special place….take the time to enjoy all that this lovely community has to offer.
