North Berwick Golf Club

The 13th oldest golf club in the world, North Berwick is second only to the Royal & Ancient Club in St. Andrews for continuous play over the same course. The West Links was originally 6 holes, with a 7th added before it was extended to 18 holes in 1877. North Berwick may not be the longest (at 6,420 yards) but rest assured that successful navigation requires a golfer's full repertoire. Some people have said the course is from a primitive age, a statement that must not be perceived as an insult. North Berwick has evolved naturally with little assistance from mankind, a fact reflected in the name of the principle architect - Mother Nature herself.
