By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 20 Mar 2024

Visitors flocked in record numbers to East Lothian last year, and Scotland's Golf Coast looks set for an even bigger season in 2024 with enquiries and bookings reaching greater heights than ever before.

With the addition of the superb Goswick (in Northumberland), Scotland’s Golf Coast now has 22 golf courses to pick from, alongside a vast selection of accommodation and restaurant options in addition to transport providers, meaning that there is everything you need here for a magical golf trip.

Goswick is a little over an hour’s drive from Edinburgh and offers the Gateway to Scotland’s Golf Coast to golfers arriving from the south and the continent via the North Sea ferry. 

Scotland’s Golf Coast offers an impressive range of golf courses and accommodation, making East Lothian a destination for everyone.
