⛳ Just 27 miles and 30 minutes from Edinburgh, Winterfield Golf Club is a terrific links course with stunning views of the Firth of Forth, Bass Rock, Isle of May and the Lammemuir Hills.

One of the lesser known of #scotgolfcoast, but great value for money, a true test and a lot of fun.

🔆Memorable Bunkering at Muirfield🔆

The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers has hosted the Open no less than 16 times and regularly appears in ‘best ofs’. It takes 4th place in the Golf World Top 100 links courses.

Quite unique for links golf, there are two loops of nine. The outward nine borders the perimeters of the golf course, whilst the inward ones rest inside the outward circle.

There are golf destinations that maybe have a couple of championship golf courses. On Scotland’s Golf Coast, there is one particular golf club, that has three. On the finest links land is Gullane Hill where the holes rise up, rise down, zig-zag and meander, as Gullane’s 1, 2 and 3 offer a challenge for all.

There was no really awesome light first thing yesterday morning but there was a whole lot of swooshery going on in the wash on the shore as the water receded. That'll do for me.

🏌️‍♂️ Get Acclimatised to Links Golf in East Lothian

Morikawa was keen to point out that his journey to Scotland and the Renaissance Club the week prior to his Major triumph, certainly helped him fine-tune his links game.

The Champion Golfer of the Year talked positively about getting acclimatised to links golf in East Lothian. The unpredictability of the weather, the turf and the type of golf, no doubt helped Morikawa with his shot choice and club selection.

🏌️‍♂️ It was in 2018 Gullane Golf Club that Brandon Stone had a birdie putt on the 18th to shoot the first ever 59 on the European Tour. It slipped by, but his closing round of 60 was enough!

💬 “To stand here as the Scottish Open champion is really incredible.”
