Longniddry Golf Club
Longniddry Golf Club is situated along the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, just a few miles east of Edinburgh. The course has a unique design that combines woodlands and links. Based on the scorecard alone, the golf course does not seem particularly long, especially not by today's standards, but don't let that fool you. Although there are no par 5s to be found on the course, golfers will come across eight par 4s that measure over 400 yards. Many of Longniddry Golf Club's holes play much longer than the indicated yardage thanks to the hilly terrain, numerous strategically placed bunkers, and mature pines. The fairways are quite generous and the greens are large, but golfers will be faced with punishing gorse and rough if their shot is even slightly wayward. The prevailing winds add another difficult element to the course.

Course in poor condition
Friendly welcome in the Pro shop, and in the clubhouse, bacon rolls were excellent. Course layout is appealing to the eye, but £48 to play the course in its current condition was nothing short of daylight robbery, the recently sanded greens were very bumpy and looked as if they were recovering from some sort of disease, bunkers were most un-raked, and some areas of the course had significant amounts of casual water.
Definitely worth a visit
Lovely course in very good condition. Very friendly atmosphere in club house and excellent food.
For March it was excellent
I know Longniddry well and it was nice to see it in such good nick early in the year. Greens were good though the pins were in awkward , tucked away spots on many holes which tested two veterans. The day was flat calm and we wandered round at our own pace.
The staff in the pro shop could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. All in all a wonderful day and I can recommend the course to anybody.
Great course condition excellent no negatives about this it’s a must play hope to be back. Regards Allan murray
Course in good condition for time of year
Frendly staff excellent price from TeeOffTimes good condition for time of year
To put in context, this was a round when my home course was closed due to snow and it had been -4'C overnight. This meant that the golf was a bit crazy and unpredictable i.e +300yds drives, balls bouncing at crazy angles, etc. Taking this into account we enjoyed our round which in the summer must be a challenging course with lots of long par 4s. By the time we got to the 11th we were on the summer greens and this made a big difference. The only negative I would say is that I always like a browse in a well stocked Pro Shop but in this case there was virtually no stock.
A Great Winter's Game of Golf
Always a joy to play here - no par 5s but several challenging par 4s. The course is a nice blend of tree-lined parkland holes and others with a links feel. Friendly staff and members.
Very good course played in perfect conditions for time of year. Friendly people great bacon roll pace of play decent just a great day out.
Slow to start but very good thereafter
It was a chilly, bright, windy day and there were lots of two' s out following some fours and I think the bright sunshine was too much for people looking into it on the first few holes; it was, indeed, very slow. But, for whatever reason, play speeded up and we were round in not much over three and a half hours.
The course was very good for November with good putting surfaces and maintained to a decent length for play..
Our bacon and egg rolls and coffee before play were good, service friendly and quick and the lad in the pro's shop could not have been more pleasant.
All in all a very good day though, strangely for Scotland, spoiled by the low sun in our eyes . We did not see where our balls were going, too often.
Longniddry goes with a high recommendation from this experienced golfer
On turning up at the course you are greeted with a large car park, on entering the club shop we where greeted warmly and the shop is well stocked.
We played off the yellow tees very testing course some wonderful long drives and the greens are very fast, but overall the course is stunning very well looked after the views out to sea are beautiful. Everyone at this course was very friendly any information you needed they gave you it. I highly recommend this course if your in the area.
Weather was nice but breezy.
Course was in excellent condition
Staff were friendly
Food was alright for for the price
The course was in great condition for the time of year. Greens had sand over them but the ball still ran true. Will definitely be coming back to play. Superb course. Thank you.
Overspill car park not the best introduction to Longniddry. Club house, which is being refurbished made up for poor first impressions. Friendliness of staff in proshop also excellent.
Course is nicely laid out, similar to links, but basically parkland. Well positioned bunkers mean that you have to think about how you play a hole. Some interesting par 3s and a few very long par 4s, no mens' par 5s at all, which is a little strange especially as a couple of the par 4s were 450 yards plus. In the summer when the ball rolls on the dry ground it should just be possible for higher handicappers to reach these greens in two. Some of the greens are very well guarded and require fairly accurate approach shots to stay out of trouble. Greens themselves had recently been hollow tined and were a bit erratic as a result. However, you could see that once back in normal condition they will play well with some very subtle contours.
The haggis and egg roll afterwards in the club house, along with the excellent friendly service, was a real treat and a perfect end to our day.
In short, a course suitable more for middle to higher handicappers, with excellent spring weather meant a most enjoyable day.
Excellent course great layout and condition for time of the year.
Excellent value for money at £20 on a hot deal.Only downside was the 5th green was being worked on so on a temporary green and the 5th looks a great hole short dog leg par 4 with an elevated green.
I willplay again in the summer.
Good quick greens.
The course itself is very good, with some nice holes and some demanding tee shots,the greens were very quick and putted well, the bunkers were ok, my only negative thing really to say about the course was that the fairways needed quite a bit of attention got a good rate to play if I had paid the full price I would have been a little disappointed.,
Lovely links golf course with trees to keep you honest. Beutiful scenery and views of firth and Edinburgh in distance. As is the case with this whole coastline. Very fair course although there are a few mid fairway bunkers that are a suprise, but thats links golf.
