Dunbar Links – Golf Course of the Month – December 2020
Sitting proudly on the south side of the Firth of Forth Estuary, in the golfing Mecca that is East Lothian, Dunbar Links is a challenging, traditional links which has records dating back to 400 years ago!
This mature links follows the natural contours of a thin strip of land fenced off by a rocky shoreline and an old red sandstone wall. It is by no means the longest course with a yardage of just over 6,500 yards, but what it lacks in length it certainly makes up for with its demand for accuracy and judgement.
Dunbar shares the same coastline as Muirfield, Gullane and North Berwick and It has been host to many prestigious events over the years such as The Open Final Qualifying, the Scottish Amateur Championship and the British Ladies Amateur Championship.
