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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
