What do your Hosts Think?
“Like my home club Cruden Bay, North Berwick is everything that is great about Scottish golf. That finishing stretch is as memorable as your first love. My number one course in Scotland for sure.” (Ru)
“A round at North Berwick is a purified Scottish golf experience. I have been fortunate to play many great Scottish links and North Berwick definitely falls into this category.” (Graylyn)
North Berwick Golf Links 2015 Green Fees
Per Round £95
Day Ticket £130
Best Visitor Time to Play
Far from listed as a must, North Berwick continues to attract golfing purists and academics of the game. The course is actually common land leased from the local council making it a huge income stream for the local economy. For this reason visitor times will continue to be prominent on an average summer tee sheet. Good news.
The exception to this rule is Saturday, now a designated member day.
Message to Golfers Visiting in 2015
“We look forward to welcoming many more golfers from around the world to North Berwick.”
(Christopher Spencer, Secretary of The North Berwick Golf Club)
Advice from your Hosts
“As great as the finishing stretch is the preceding 12 holes are also a thrill so try stay in the moment, let it sweep you out to the far end of the course on the 10th tee before the final 6 holes home.”

“Take a walk across the street from the last green and wonder into the clubhouse for a post round drink as the bar offers great views over the 1st & 18th holes.” (Graylyn)
