The Glen

The Glen Golf Club is one of the most popular of East Lothian golf courses. Whether you have played golf in Scotland before, or if this is your first visit, the Glen is a golfing venue not to be missed. This North Berwick course enjoys superb views across the Firth of Forth and provides an enjoyable test of golf for all levels of player.

If you are planning a golfing holiday in Scotland or organizing a golf tour or golf package, take the opportunity of including the Glen. East Lothian golf is special and the Glen enjoys a central location in the ‘Edinburgh Golf Coast’.

Suiting players of all abilities the course is challenging but fair. It is 6275 yards (par 70) for men off the medal tees and a 5773 yards (par 73) for ladies.

The Glen enjoys a breathtaking cliff top location with many spectacular holes offering views of the Firth of Forth and its islands including the Bass Rock, the world renowned bird sanctuary. The Glen is an all year round course and is seldom closed due to weather, playing normal greens and tees throughout the year.

The unsung hero of the wondrous East Lothian coast, home of awesome links layouts such as Muirfield, North Berwick and Gullane. In truth you can’t really put The Glen into that exalted company but it is nevertheless an outstanding clifftop course in its own right and includes several memorable holes with the blind, beachside par-3 13th standing out. There’s bags of drama starting from the uphill par-4 opener to the sensational, driveable par-5 climax which, from the elevated tee, provides some breathtaking views of North Berwick town and the Firth of Forth. Once you reach the top of the hill the views of the Bass Rock , Fife and the town are simply stunning. The course’s signature hole is the 13th, or Sea Hole, as it is known. A blind par-3 to a green framed by beach and rocks to the back and right, it is Pebble Beach or Cypress Point with a Scottish twist.
