The Club
The 13th oldest golf club in the world,
North Berwick
is second only to the
Royal & Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews
forcontinuous play over the same course. The West Links was originally 6 holes, with a 7th added before it was extended to 18 holes in1877. One of the most natural links in the world, North Berwick may not be the longest of courses at 6,420 yards but rest assuredthat successful navigation requires the full repertoire of shot making.Like all golf courses of similar historical origins, North Berwick has its own stories to tell - some good, some funny and some tragic.In the early days, matches between leading professionals were frequent and attracted thousands of spectators. In September 1875,one such match pitted
Willie and Mungo Park against Young and Old Tom Morris
. The match ended abruptly when a telegram arrivedwith the news that Young Tom's wife was seriously ill after the birth of their son. Tragically, both Mother & Son subsequently died andso devastating was the news to the 25-year old "legend", that Young Tom, already triple Open Champion, died 3 months later.The course itself has been described as being from a primitive age, a statement that must not be perceived as taking anything awayfrom its undeniable quality. The simple fact is that North Berwick has to a large extent evolved naturally with little assistance frommankind, a fact reflected in the name of the principle course architect - Mother Nature herself. Each hole on this stimulating links,which regularly hosts final qualifying for the
British Open
, poses different tests of judgement and skill. A unique golfing experience,North Berwick boasts blind holes, spectacular views, drives over walls and burns and
bunkers deep enough for golfers to disappear
from view. Many holes have been copied by designers all over the world; most commonly the 376-yard,
14th, named "Perfection"
and the 192-yard 15th hole called "Redan", which has been replicated in both Pebble Beach and Shinnecock Hills.Like many of the great holes in golf, first impressions of "Redan" can be deceptive and it is only through playing the hole a number,that the golfer can truly appreciate its hidden subtleties. The mounds, ridges and depressions that were left after the sea receded givethe course its natural contours and the 15th hole was part of that evolution. For the player on the tee, the green is blind and theshaped shot, which is demanded to battle with the prevailing wind, can be struck with anything from a driver to a nine iron.Text provided byOnlineGolf TravelTailored Golf Vacationthroughout Scotland andIreland

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 guardingthe centre of the green.
