Gullane No. 3 (1910) was also designed by Willie Park Jr. It may be the shortest of the three courses, but it provides a wonderful test based on shot-making skills rather than power.
Of all the courses at Gullane, No. 3 enjoys some of the best views across Aberlady Bay to Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth beyond. Spectacular and challenging, No. 3 is a course that demands a deft touch and a cool head. Forget the yardage chart; this is a course for shot-makers.
Designed by Willie Park Jr, the course celebrated its centenary in 2010 and has matured to become a much loved destination for many visiting golfers. Favoured with same impeccable links turf as its older neighbours No. 3 is maintained to the same high standards from tee to green. This is no soft option, despite a lack of yards the course still present the classic Gullane challenge of strategic course management, true running greens and numerous bunkers to be avoided – and all played out in stunning scenery.
The architect of Course No. 3 is Willie Park Junior. The type of grass is predominantly Bent on the fairways and Fescue on the greens. There are 67 bunkers on the course and the average green size is 450m Sq.
