Love sitting having a drink and something to eat at this wonderful club. The service always good and you feel well looked after.

This course never fails to impress.
The condition of the course is always first class, the views never alter, but unfortunately the scores do!

Well if Max Homa had this on his bucket list, you should add it too. We played on a typical links day. Wind. Rain. Hit some from the beach too, which is in play. Course is in fantastic shape. Grab a bite too.

We had a great time on this beautiful course. We did get to experience some rainy day golf. But there is drying gear in the locker rooms and a great pub to relax at while our rain gear dried out a bit.

What a fun, scenic, and quirky golf course. You know you’re on an older, classic course when tee boxes and greens are close together and you have a bunch of blind shots. The front nine is incredibly beautiful and the opening hole is breathtaking. The quirkiness shows up on the back nine with blind holes, lack of directional signs, and a rock wall standing between you and the green on one hole! A lot of fun but consider taking a caddie the first time you play it. I wish we did just that. Great clubhouse and bar to enjoy a post round pint. And a shoutout to the staff from the pro shop to the starter to the bar host... all very welcoming and friendly!

We had planned a bucket list golf trip to Scotland, and while looking over the long list of courses we wanted to play, we found we just didn't have enough time (or financial wherewithal) to play them all, so we had to make some compromises.

One course we wanted to ensure we played was the West Links at North Berwick. A lot of history on this course and having never played in Scotland prior to this, a challenging introduction to links golf.

After a warm welcome in the pro shop, we hit the practice green while we waited for our game to be up on the first tee. A wonderful introduction by the starter of the course and it's history followed by the introduction of our caddie for the game, Alan.

I had never played with a caddie prior to this trip, so having Alan along to explain a bit of history of the course, his experience playing in Scotland, and a bit of a tip now and again on my inconsistent swing was truly eye opening. But Alan helped everyone in our group, pointing out aim points of the tee and into the greens, lines for putts, all with great humour and grace.

The course was in great shape for early march, the greens ran true, the wind was blowing, and it made for a sharp contrast to what we consider to be golf back home in Pennsylvania.

I played well, which surprised me as my normal ball flight is rather high up in the air, but managed to survive the back nine with the wind at a steady 20 mph and gusts to 30 into our face. Adding 2-3 clubs to every shot was a bit daunting. The course has its quirks, but to me, they added character and only enhanced the experience and did not detract. Some may only be happy with the perfect fairway grass, the true rolling greens that are easy to read, or not having blind shots into quirky greens, but to me, this course would make a person a better golfer, not worse.

Overall, a great time, beautiful setting, fantastic caddie, and I would not hesitate to do it again at any opportunity. To me, score was irrelevant in my round, I enjoyed the challenge the course presented.

Hi, the golf course itself is fun and scenic but over rated dramatically eden st Andrews, Dunbar, Kilspindie and so on much better. The problems also start as old members limit number and fill the course with 4 ball after 4 ball of tourists and don't allow new locals into the club so they have a very stuffy old membership that is odd and use the course as a cash cow. The greens are never good ok but never great, course itself is worth a play below £100 but prices odd now too as marketing it quite well.
Also they have rangers that try and speed people up a lot so they can fill tee times so beware of a not so relaxed game of golf as they are really bad in summer anything over 3.45 hours they will be pushing you.
the clubhouse your made to not feel welcome also its one those stuffy clubs and its not Scottish as a true Scottish course has locals this is mainly a Disney type course for tourism no local charm.

go play Dunbar or Kilspindie for local charm and avoid this hell hole.

Teeing off from the first was truly amazing! Then the next few holes, whatever you do don’t slice! You just may end up in someone’s lunch hamper on the beach!
All in all a challenge, but well worth the journey up. Also keep it straight down the last, as there’s a few cars not too far off the fairway!

Absolutely fantastic visit to North Berwick. Sunny and gusty day on this magnificent course, which has amazing views and is an incredible test playing into the wind on the front 9, wind to your back on the back 9. The experience wouldn’t have been the same without my caddy Jamie, who grew up on the course and is a local to the area, and was able to provide me with great stories and insights of the area as well as the greens!

The club was incredibly friendly, and as a visitor you are told to be a member for the day, with full clubhouse access.

Cannot wait to come back again!

Fantastic setting, sitting enjoying great food and a few drinks in the historic clubroom right in front of the 18th green on a beautiful evening. Service and chat always good. We’ll be back on the weekend for the bistro night.
