Laid out back in 1898 by the legendary Willie Park Jr, Gullane No. 2 runs alongside it’s marginally older sister Gullane No. 1 for the first few holes, it then sweeps down towards the nature reserve next to Aberlady Bay, before turning back and heading towards the clubhouse.
When the Scottish Open was twice held at Gullane in 2015 and 2018, the 7th and 8th holes from No. 2 combined with 16 holes from No. 1 to form a composite Championship course designed to test the best golfers in the world.
The course is perhaps most renowned for the challenge of it’s short holes, not least the 11th, which is down on the card at over 200 yards. Played severely downhill, golfers can either opt to carry the three front bunkers and run the ball in from short of the green, or take an extra club and pitch it all the way on the putting surface.
Offering magnificent views of the stunning East Lothian landscape throughout the round, Gullane No. 2 is always presented in fine condition and a pleasure to play. The combination of the speed and subtle undulations of the greens have caught many a visiting golfer out before now.
