Gullane Golf Club - No. 3
The Gullane Golf Club No. 3 Course was ready for play in 1910, and now the first and last trios of holes sit on the east side of Highway A198. The other 12 holes lie on the south side of Gullane Hill and offer wonderful views across the Aberlady Bay, of Edinburgh and Firth of Forth.
Do not let the official yardage mislead you: At 5,259 yards, the par-68 golf course looks small, maybe simple, and there's only a single par-5, the 443-yard 14th.
This course, however, will test the most experienced golfer.

Another great day at Gullane
This is a great course, we have played it three times recently and it never fails to present different challenges, throw in the weather, a gentle breeze of the coast, pins positioned in some difficult locations makes for an interesting round. Staff in the visitors lounge were friendly and very helpful , ensured that we were not travellers from outside our area, we used the track and trace , enjoyed the light snacks and made the best of a windy day by the seaside, oh and somebody brought Gof clubs ................see you soon
A Different course every time l play
This is great course, and it tests you every time l return to play it, recommend it to anyone who links links golf. However, there does seem to be a lack of respect probably from the minority where pitch marks on the greens are not being replaced and divots not being replaced, l suppose it’s a reflection of the sheer volume of players moving through the course, but it’s time they were all remembered to look after the course, if they cause a pitch mark or a divot they at least try to replace/repair it.
Staff were friendly, although we only spoke to a green keeper and the starter,We followed a four ball and one of the guys was wearing a pair of demons and track shoes....
Lovely setting for a collection of great Golf courses. Friendly staff and a great days Golf....
Short but very sweet!
Excellent experience today at Gullane. Friendly, welcoming staff at the Pro Shop and the starter was very good also. Weather wasn't the best during our round on no.3, typical wet and windy links weather but thats part of links golf in Scotland in October. The course, despite the conditions, was in excellent condition. No standing water to be seen with firm fairways and the greens were fantastic, very true and quick.
Course itself is short in yardage but the wind really protects it as do the well placed bunkers and the small greens. Really enjoyable place to play golf. The views at the top of the hill are stunning looking back towards Edinburgh and across the water. Particular favourite holes were the 7th and the 15th hole. Both elevated tee shots with fantastic views. Will definitely return to play golf in Gullane again.
It’s a real shame that covid has shut down the off course facilities at Gullane, and all the other courses l have played throughout the summer, but the course, it’s condition and the general flow of play did not let us down, we had a very good round, weather was kind and there were some spectacular views, in between the golf., a very enjoyable day and covid won’t stop us returning.
Played with friends from England who loved everything about the course and the practice area. Weather helped, not a breath of wind and wonderful views . Highly recommended
Good course to play
Always wanted to play 1 of the 3 courses, course doesn't disappoint. Rough can be hard going if you don't hit straight. Views are brilliant especially from the 5th onwards. Overall was an enjoyable experience
Lovely day on3
Greens however recently hollotined so not up to perfection
Thanks to everyone
Will be back again
First links experience
Had a great round at Gullane yesterday, first links style experience, staff gave myself and my friend an extremely warm welcome, the course was in a good condition although some greens had been sanded and had grooves running across them which (I’m not sure what the correct terminology is)made it a little hard to line up putts and read the green. There was no bins at the tees like I am used to at most courses I visit which meant having to carry my rubbish around the course which wasn’t the end of the world but it would have been good to see a bin every couple of holes. Can’t wait to come back and play one of the other courses, number 3 has definitely got me in the mood for more links style golf
