Longniddry Golf Club is situated along the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, just a few miles east of Edinburgh. The course has a unique design that combines woodlands and links. Based on the scorecard alone, the golf course does not seem particularly long, especially not by today's standards, but don't let that fool you. Although there are no par 5s to be found on the course, golfers will come across eight par 4s that measure over 400 yards. Many of Longniddry Golf Club's holes play much longer than the indicated yardage thanks to the hilly terrain, numerous strategically placed bunkers, and mature pines. The fairways are quite generous and the greens are large, but golfers will be faced with punishing gorse and rough if their shot is even slightly wayward. The prevailing winds add another difficult element to the course.

Winter is coming!

Greens have begun prep for winter, covered with sand and have been tined. Course is quite challenging, especially with a strong breeze.

A very windy day !

Visited during 3 day visit to Scotland from home in Derbyshire.
Very friendly reception from everybody we met including the Pro shop staff and various members.
We had breakfast before we went out.which was great value and top quality.
The course was terrific apart from lots of ruts on the greens which I presume were caused by some sort of green maintenance. These ruts made it very difficult to putt.
Apart from these ruts the day was great despite playing in what we thought was a hurricane but the locals described as a bit of a breeze.

Greens are sublime

Great track. Pretty good challenge to score, with no par 5s. Greens are really smooth and was a real pleasure to play.

Great layout

Lovely course layout. Greens have just been cored a couple weeks ago so there still a few weeks away. Next year it should be a much better course as there is a lot of work being done. So would like to play in summer.

Tremendous test of golf

Lovely setting, great layout and a friendly welcome, what more could you want? Needless to say the wind is a massive factor, making modest length holes into real brutes. Overall, highly recommended and a pleasure to play.

Made to feel welcome by the Pro. As first timers to the course he informed us of the practice area and a little about the course. Course was busy for a Tuesday morning in winter, some would complain about it but a sign of a good course surely! 4 ball in front of our 2 ball but not held up to bad. Winter tees in operation but all greens were in play. Sun was out to start and that always helps with the enjoyment of a course. Fairways and especially greens were in excellent condition for time of year and in spite of recent rainy weather. Not a difficult course, we had no wind and there's no par 5's just a nice pleasant course with the odd tricky hole. Can imagine a low handicapper scoring very low in the right conditions and mid/ high handicaps will enjoy it. Its fairly flat, straight course with the odd dogleg or undulating fairway. Enjoyable course that I'd play again.

Course in poor condition

Friendly welcome in the Pro shop, and in the clubhouse, bacon rolls were excellent. Course layout is appealing to the eye, but £48 to play the course in its current condition was nothing short of daylight robbery, the recently sanded greens were very bumpy and looked as if they were recovering from some sort of disease, bunkers were most un-raked, and some areas of the course had significant amounts of casual water.

For March it was excellent

I know Longniddry well and it was nice to see it in such good nick early in the year. Greens were good though the pins were in awkward , tucked away spots on many holes which tested two veterans. The day was flat calm and we wandered round at our own pace.

The staff in the pro shop could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. All in all a wonderful day and I can recommend the course to anybody.
