Hole 1Point Garry (out)

322 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 9
Pro's Tip: Play your drive short of the path and aim your approach shot left of the pin.  Important to get your approach shot close on this the largest of our greens.

Hole 2Sea

429 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 11
Pro's Tip: This hole runs along the sea. Cut off as much as you dare.  The second is much longer than it looks, over a bunker guarding the centre of the green.

Hole 3Trap

460 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 1
Pro's Tip: Drive at the gap in the wall.  Your second shot must be played over the wall but avoid the greenside bunker on the right.

Hole 4Carlekemp

178 yards
PAR 3
Stroke Index: 15

Hole 5Bunkershill

371 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 5
Pro's Tip: Bunkers to the right await the faded drive.  Straightforward approach shot playing a few yards longer than it looks.

 Hole Five Photo

Hole 6Quarry

161 yards
PAR 3
Stroke Index: 17
Pro's Tip: The shortest of the par threes at North Berwick. Avoid the cavernous bunker guarding the approach to this green. The folly of under-clubbing is plain to see.

Hole 7Eil Burn

365 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 3
Pro's Tip: A straight drive from the tee is required.  Club up on the second to avoid wet feet. Reward for an approach shot close to the pin.

Hole 8Linkhouse

506 yards
PAR 5
Stroke Index: 13
Pro's Tip: Avoid bunker on the left off the tee. Plot your way carefully past cross bunkers whether carrying or laying up.

Hole Eight Photo

Hole 9Mizzentop

519 yards
PAR 5
Stroke Index: 7
Pro's Tip: The right hand route is the safest but this makes for a longer hole. The left hand route is only for the brave and accurate.  Negotiate the greenside bunkers for a chance of a birdie.

Hole 10Eastward Ho!

172 yards
PAR 3
Stroke Index: 18
Pro's Tip: Do not be distracted by the view.  You must not pull up short – five bunkers await a wayward tee shot.

 Hole Ten Photo

Hole 11Bos'ns Locker

546 yards
PAR 5
Stroke Index: 2
Pro's Tip: Drive left of the bunkers. Your second shot must lay up short of the bunkers or carry the diagonal slope.  The approach shot must be played left of the pin or the bunker right awaits.

 Hole Eleven Photo

Hole 12Bass

401 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 8
Pro's Tip: Play it as a dog-leg. Concentrate hard while putting on this tricky green, as the wind plays a big part with the green so close to the shore.

 Hole Twelve Photo

Hole 13Pit

387 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 12
Pro's Tip: Drive to the right of centre.  Don't argue with the wall – it's older than you.  A good drive however will leave you with a short iron over the wall to set up a birdie chance.

 Hole Thirteen Photo

Hole 14Perfection

374 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 6
Pro's Tip: An accurate tee-shot is essential.  Your second shot must carry the ridge. Only a perfect shot will yield a reward.

 Hole Fourteen Photo

Hole 15Redan

190 yards
PAR 3
Stroke Index: 14
Pro's Tip: The green slopes strongly from right to left.  Your tee shot must carry all the way on this the most famous of the short holes – and copied throughout the world.

 Hole Fifteen Photo

Hole 16Gate

378 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 4
Pro's Tip: You may carry the burn but the real trouble is the green – narrow, raised and dissected by a gully.  This hole needs accuracy or luck.

 Hole Sixteen Photo

Hole Sixteen Graphic


Hole 17Point Garry (in)

428 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 10
Pro's Tip: Aim at Bass Rock, left can be the shortest line.  Your second shot must carry the ridge, before hitting the brakes to avoid a second visit to the first green.

 Hole Seventeen Photo

Hole 18Home

277 yards
PAR 4
Stroke Index: 16
Pro's Tip: Concentrate – car repairs are expensive. Play left if you feel the need for safety.  A good time to finish with a birdie in front of the clubhouse.
