It's Time to Book Your Scotland's Golf Coast Experience
With travel restrictions easing, Scotland's Golf Coast has once again become a hot destination for golfers worldwide, with visitors being encouraged to secure their East Lothian experience by booking now for 2022 or early for 2023.
Boasting the world’s greatest concentration of championship links courses, the 30-mile coastline offers a fantastic destination to suit all abilities and budgets for stay-and-play breaks - as well as one of Scotland’s driest locations for all-year round golf.
Two venues in the region will welcome the world’s best this year when the Renaissance Club hosts the Genesis Scottish Open for a fourth straight year on the new DP World Tour in July, while the following month the AIG Women’s Open will be staged at Muirfield for the very first time.
Combined with a plentiful choice of accommodation - including resorts, hotels, bed & breakfasts and self-catering with some offering short-game golf facilities on site - and easy access to main road networks, it is hoped many visitors will enjoy the East Lothian fairways in 2022 but will also look to book early for 2023.
With many clubs already reporting strong bookings in 2022, booking ahead for 2023 can put your mind at ease and avoid disappointment.
Malcolm Duck, Owner of Duck’s Inn at Aberlady, said: “2022 promises to be an exciting and bumper year in East Lothian. We know that the variety of courses, the selection of accommodation and the wonderful food and drink on offer put Scotland’s Golf Coast high on the golf trip wish-list.
“There is even more focus on the region this year with the two championships, so it’s crucial to get booked now. You won’t be disappointed.”
Scotland’s Golf Coast is a private sector led/public sector supported business and marketing alliance with almost 40 members, including golf clubs, accommodation providers and other local businesses.
Wherever you venture on your East Lothian golfing journey, you will find traditional links and classic inland layouts, often steeped in history, and complemented by modern, challenging courses.
With a choice of 21 courses in total - headlined by 16-time Open venue Muirfield, the Renaissance, Archerfield Links, North Berwick and the three courses on offer at Gullane - the variety of golf in the region is exceptional. Craigielaw, Dunbar, Kilspindie, Longniddry, Luffness New, Musselburgh Links, The Glen and Winterfield are other venues offering a warm welcome and great value for money.
It is less than 45 minutes to all of Scotland’s Golf Coast courses from the nation’s capital, Edinburgh, and under 90 minutes from Glasgow, while the region can also be easily reached on the motorway routes to England, Wales and beyond.
In terms of accommodation, there are options for every budget and for every golfing group or family holiday: from Duck’s Inn at Aberlady to the Marine Hotel & Spa on the West links in North Berwick; or from The Lodge at Craigielaw to Garleton Lodge, which boasts stunning views across the Forth and surrounding East Lothian countryside.
Archerfield House also offers contemporary, luxury accommodation in wonderful surroundings, with world-class links golf on your doorstep. A number of the accommodation providers in East Lothian package together the accommodation and courses for the golfers’ convenience.
