North Berwick Golf Club
Even in the glittering array of Scotland’s seaside golf courses, North Berwick’s West Links stands out as a rare gem. Golf has been played on North Berwick links land, as in other parts of the country, since the early years of the seventeenth century, and possibly earlier than that. But it was the formation in 1832 of North Berwick Golf Club that marked the beginning of organised golf over terrain which in time would be expanded to become the West Links which we know today.
There are three holes for which the West Links is best known: The 13th (“The Pit”), the 14th (“Perfection”), and the 15th (“Redan”); the original, copied many times. In recent years the Club has regularly played host to a Final Qualifying competition when the Open Championship is held at neighbouring Muirfield, and in that context many of today’s leading players have met with triumph or disaster on the West Links.
