Edinburgh & East Lothian Golf Tours

Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, is an architecture lover’s paradise. Streets lined with Georgian-style masterpieces radiate and emphasize the city’s class and sophistication. The magnificently preserved Old Town and the Royal Mile are a gateway into the 18th century and served as the inspiration to JK Rowling for the Harry Potter series. The highlights of this area include Edinburgh Castle, an historic landmark that hosts the annual world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Fringe Festival, one of the biggest arts festivals in the world. Neighboring East Lothian features many beaches and attractions, including its own fair share of castles and history as well as championship links that attract visiting golfers from around the world.

Two of the very best golf courses in the Edinburgh and East Lothian vicinity are The West Links of North Berwick Golf Club, recognized as the 13th oldest golf club in the world and served as the influence behind C.B. McDonald in bringing classic golf architecture to the United States. Muirfield has hosted 16 Open Championship’s, 11 Amateur Championships and The AIG Women’s Open Championship in 2022.

Other outstanding courses in the area include Gullane Golf Club’s three championship links. Gullane No.1 has hosted the Scottish Open, as has The Renaissance Club, recently named host to The Scottish Open through 2026. Dunbar East Links is also former Open Championship qualifying site.  

Called “The Eighth Wonder of the World” when it opened in 1924, The Gleneagles Hotel, a short drive from Edinburgh, is scenically located in a glen overlooking the Orchil Hills and has three diverse championship courses.

The PGA Centenary has hosted both the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup Matches, The King’s Course, a James Braid inland links classic, recently restored and host to many European Tour and R&A events throughout the years and The Queen’s Course, a timeless heathland layout.
