East Lothian is one of the finest regions for golf in Scotland, with an excellent choice of courses for golfers of all abilities. The Open Championship course at Muirfield, North Berwick West Links, Gullane (3 courses) , Luffness and Musselburgh are some of the world's oldest and most admired. As well as these classic links courses, steeped in history, the area also has a range of modern and challenging inland courses.
