Gullane - No.2 Course

About

Holes 18
Type Private
Style Links
Par 71
Length 6385 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

The No. 2 course at Gullane Golf Club was constructed in 1898. Now, the first and 18th holes sit east of A198. The first seven holes parallel Gullane No. 1, and then the action shoots toward the natural reserve adjacent to the Aberlady Bay, then turns back toward the Visitors' Clubhouse.

Gullane No. 2 offers great short holes, especially the 11th, with its fantastic view and strategic club selection. Make no mistake, though: the long holes are long. The sixth hole is a 498-yard par-5, and the 16th is a 527-yard par-5.

The golf course hosted the 1980 final qualifying for the Open Championship and the 2000 Seniors Open Amateur Championship.

A must play

Gullane 2. Conditions were windy but for October beautiful abd sunny. Course in anazing condition, great layout of holes, testing but some easier. Still none were 'easy'. Loved the course and views around the coast - spectacular.

Rated 2 for facilities as clubhouses were closed.

Great course conditions for time of year

The course was immaculate with perfect greens which is rare for October in Scotland. The facilties are first class with a large practice area to warm up and free range balls. Only slight negative was the rather slow play, as many were taken advantage of the fine weather, and I thought that the members' foursome playing behind were slightly rude, marching on to the tee on a couple of occasions to look at the players ahead of us, while we were waiting to tee off and early in the round suggesting we should join up with the pair to make a foursome.

Repeat Gullane 2 customers

Afternoon start - played in 4 hrs 6 mins with very little wait at tees. Course was well maintained with quick and consistent greens. Pull trolleys used were in excellent condition. Warm-up area (range, putting green, bunkers and chipping green) were also very well maintained. Another great visit!

Good Course - Stay out the rough

Nice course with great views, although weather not the best when we played.
Rough very punishing and hard to find ball if you stray into the rough

Proper Golf

This is how golf should be played. Wind, quirky undulations, lots of sand and fantastic greens. Not a long course so I took decision to leave the driver in the bag and hitting straight makes all the difference. Highly recommend this course. Members also very friendly and you can even take your well behaved dog.

Pure links golf in a 30mph crosswind

Starter was very friendly and course was in great condition. The rough is brutal and with a 30mph crosswind, was difficult to avoid.

A true links golf experience.

Excellent links golf experience

Overall a beautiful golf course which has excellent views and a good variety of holes. Not too long so suitable for all handicap levels. Pace of play has been excellent every time I have played and is a nice relaxing round and of golf. Tricky bunkers and hitting straight is a must. Worth a visit even for the extra money. Lovely part of the world I must say

What a stunning course!!!

What a fantastic course I played today. Most holes run alongside the Firth of Forth and you can see the Forth Bridge at a distance, that takes you towards St Andrews. The course is full of wild life, including deer!
Took me a while to get my head round playing on my own, as I love to compete against someone. Eventually realised that the course itself is good enough competition and then I started to improve my club & shot selection. This was course no.2 of 3courses here. It’s just as stunning as no.1, although no.1 was £190 to play today, whereas I got no.2 at £48 (booked on GolfNow) and just enough a good test. Staff here are so welcoming too. Would play this course again in a heartbeat!
