Gullane is a small town southeast of Edinburgh, steeped in golfing history and it has no fewer than five golf courses surrounding its village boundary. The world-renowned Muirfield belonging to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, is just one of these courses. Gullane no 1 is the first and premier course for Gullane Golf Club and is regarded in its own right as a significant test of golf. Once the first two holes have been negotiated, the player will move out onto the top of Gullane Hill which is where the real test begins. A series of challenging golf holes and a gradual climb to the top of Gullane Hill leaves the player standing on the 7th tee with a magnificent 360-degree view of the courses that are situated around the village. Immediately behind you can see the hallowed turf of Muirfield, straight ahead you can see the Froth Railway Bridge and the capital city, and looking due west you can see the no 2 course, and in the distance the new Luffness. Gullane no 1 is also a final qualifying course for The Open when held at Muirfield. With North Berwick and Dunbar within easy travelling distance, there is plenty of golf to be played in this area.
