A Conversation for Great Golf Courses

The Glen golf course in North Berwick, some 25 miles east of Edinburgh, is part of a remarkable area centred around Gullane which has 10 18-hole courses along a seven mile strip of road. Three of them are already international standard, while two new top quality courses will shortly add to the number when completed during 2003. In this exalted company, which includes Muirfield (one of the hosts to the British Open), the Glen is neither the hardest, nor the longest. It is, however, outstandingly attractive.

Running along the top of a series of cliffs overlooking the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, it has views of a series of offshore islands which harbour huge colonies of constantly wheeling sea birds, as well as longer panoramas stretching to Edinburgh in the west and Fife some 12 miles away across the Firth of Forth.

Having been a visitor dozens of times while on holiday in the area, I heartily recommend it to golfers of all standards. The views alone quite takes the sting out of a golf ball on the beach!

So kind! Actually, it really is. One of the few places where you take people and normally get acclaim rather than ho hum. Well, in my back-yard anyway - I am excluding Grand Canyon and the like. We are, after all, talking golf courses here......
