North Berwick Golf Club Beach Road, North berwick, East Lothian, EH39 4BB, Scotland

North Berwick is a golfing experience not found anywhere else, with blind holes, drives over walls and burns, shots over the bay and bunkers deep enough for the golfer to disappear from view. The West Links is of great antiquity and has its place among a very special group of courses that evolved naturally and owe little to the hand of man.

Not the longest course, but the challenge of the West links at North Berwick requires the full repertoire of shot making. It is a true links course laid out on a raised-beach, laden with brown sand forming the undulating links land 10 to 30 feet above sea level.

Many of the holes have been copied by designers all over the world, including the 376 yard 14th named 'Perfection' and the 192 yard 15th called 'Redan'. These holes have been replicated at such well renowned courses as Riviera, Shinnecock, Seminole and Oakland Country Club.
