Gullane Golf Club

Course No. 3

Of all the courses at Gullane, No. 3 enjoys some of the best views across Aberlady Bay to Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth beyond. Spectacular and challenging, No. 3 is a course that demands a deft touch and a cool head. Forget the yardage chart; this is a course for shot-makers.

Designed by Willie Park Jr, the course celebrated its centenary in 2010 and has matured to become a much loved destination for many visiting golfers. Favoured with the same impeccable links turf as its older neighbours No. 3 is maintained to the same high standards from tee to green. This is no soft option, despite a lack of yards the course still presents the classic Gullane challenge of strategic course management, true running greens and numerous bunkers to be avoided – and all played out in stunning scenery.

The type of grass is predominantly Bent on the fairways and Fescue on the greens. There are 67 bunkers on the course and the average green size is 450m Sq.

To help give you a feel for the course, Alasdair Good, the Club's Head Professional has provided a hole by hole description in our Course Details section below.

There are 150 yard posts on each hole which mark the distance to the middle of the green.
