The Glen Golf Club has long been the site of one of East Lothian's most popular golf courses, and makes for a must-stop on any golf tour of Scotland. It's a North Berwick East Links course that features excellent views over the Firth of Forth and offers a fun challenge for all levels of golfers. This is the Edinburgh Golf Coast, after all - East Lothian golf makes for an unmatched experience, and the Glen is in the heart of it all. The Glen Golf Club sits a few miles away from Muirfield and Gullane and can be easily reached by road. The golf course features challenging and exquisite holes to lay, offering a mix of turf and traditional links right on the coast. Recent changes have included three new greens, extending the course to 6,321 yards, with a standard-scratch rating of 70. After a round at the Glen Golf Club, head to the clubhouse, which offers a coastal view, dance floor, and golf-and-dine packages in the bar, lounge and dining areas.

Perfect weather

Great Course. But Check your Booking

I've played this course before and the experience was up to the usual high standard. Great views and very well maintained.

However, the club had no record of my booking when I arrived. The same thing happened to another couple. Fortunately the starter managed to slot us in otherwise it would have been a long wait. In future I will phone the course to check even if I have a confirmation from Teeofftimes.

A bit of everything.

It is hard to categorise this course. There are plenty of easy shots but also some tough shots, some terrifying shots and score wrecking shots to be played. I have read some complaints about blind shots but there was only one which you might say was unfair and if you have a yardage device it isn't much of an issue. Course was in great condition when we played it and the views are spectacular. This is well worth a visit.

Pleasant Surprise

While in East Lothian to play the more noted courses like Gullane and N. Berwick, we played an "extra" round at the Glen. What a treat! The course itself is a good course - not particularly tough, or even very linksy. You cannot beat the views that you get on this course. Holes 9 and 12 play into the background of Bass Rock, while 13 is simply stunning. The view from the 18 tee is stunning as well. It is just a memorable round of golf. Not too tough, but a few world-class holes and views.

Great conditioned course

Late tee off which meant no one else around but enough time to get all 18 holes in. I had heard that earlier rounds were continually held up which from playing the course and so many fairways running alongside each other , I can see why.

Quick greens and with ground hard took a few holes to work out the right club.

Bar is supposed to stay open till 9, but we found it closed after our round.

Will return, but not on a weekend or during the day.

Not as well known.....

This is North Berwick's "other " course and while some may pooh-pooh it as the weaker sister of the world class North Berwick Golf Club, this course has it's own charms. A more uplands links, it's very playable, in good enough shape and a lot cheaper than the west links. The view of Bass Rock and the Firth are spectacular and the 13th hole, a par 3 along the water, has to be one of the prettiest views ever. Call it a hidden gem, a viable option if for some reason you can't get onto the main event. The money saved will buy you a nice lunch, for 2!
