What the club says: The East Links at North Berwick, home to the Glen Golf Club is a delightful clifftop links course which enjoys panoramic views and offers a round of spectacular to golfers of all level of ability.
The Glen is one of the most popular courses in East Lothian and has often been described as a "hidden gem".
Andrew Coltart, the former Ryder Cup and European Tour player described the Glen as "Scotland's answer to Pebble Beach", say no more! The signature hole is the stunning Par 3 13th which offers wonderful views of the Bass Rock, the world renowned bird sanctuary.
The course is located on the east shore of North Berwick, visitors will be guaranteed a warm welcome from all the Members and golf staff.

The poor relation in East Lothian
Neither links nor parkland and vaguely clifftop, The Glen is very much the poor-man's choice in East Lothian: the municipal course at Winterfield is better value. I recommend saving up to play the properly top-class tracks such as Gullane and North Berwick not to mention either of the Archerfield courses. The Glen is the Vauxhall Astra of East Lothian - not very reliable, not st all attractive but cheap and dowdy.

Phil H rated 4 out of 5 - May 21 2017

The 'younger' of the two courses at North Berwick and therefore more affordable. More exposed than the West Links as it sits on the cliffs to the east. Was a challenge in 30mph westerlies! Great views of the Firth of Forth. Staff very welcoming. Slight disappointment that for the signature hole, it is a blind tee shot off the whites.

great course with superb views. Fairways and Green very hard so remember to drop a couple of clubs especially when with the wind
Only issue we had was although the club is supposed to be open till 9 we found it closed so could not enjoy a beer

Played 27/04/2016 absolutely great course, would hate to play it when the wind blows hard, course was in great condition and the views are to die for on a good day, you need to take your time and maybe let people through just to take it all in. staff in the pro shop were very helpful. its a must play if your up that way

Had the pleasure of playing this course in the sunshine on a beautiful still morning and it was amazing. Great views all along the coast and some really interesting holes. Quite forgiving (at least at this time of year) if you miss the fairway by a bit which was a blessing.

Different from the west links course just down the road and I would recommend playing just as much.

We were very impressed by The Glen today, which we know from the past is an excellent course and clubhouse. They phoned yesterday to ask our outing organiser to phone this morning around 0830 to check if the course was open. This morning, before he phoned them, they phoned him to say the course was closed.

Lovely cliff top course with incredible sea views. Would probably be tougher on a blowy day but this was fine and it was challenging but fair.
