- Links Road, Longniddry, EH32 0NL
Longniddry Golf Course is a unique combination of woodland and links located on the south side of Firth of Forth. There are no (men’s) par 5s although some of the par 4s are very testing, particularly into the prevailing westerly winds; this is reflected by the SSS of 70 – 2 shots above the par of 68. The course is not long by modern standards, but it is designed to reward the strategic player. The fairways are quite generous and the greens are fairly large, but the penalty for straying off-line can be severe. You will find mature Scots Pines, gorse, sea-buckthorn and punitive rough only too eager to punish the wayward drive. Hit it long, certainly, but you’d better be straight!
