Dunbar East Links is another one of Scotland’s lesser-known links gems. Situated 30 miles from Edinburgh, the golf course is laid out on the very land where Oliver Cromwell camped prior to the Battle of Dunbar in 1650. In 1794, a group of local gentlemen formed the Dunbar Golfing Society and played over a course called Westbarns adjacent to the town. Situated on the estuary of the Firth of Forth, Dunbar East Links presents a combination of links and inland turf, set on a narrow stretch of land, which follows the natural contours of the coastline.  The course has hosted many prestigious events and is one of the recognised qualifying venues for the British Open bears testament to the quality of Dunbar Golf Links.
