Located between Gullane, Muirfield and North Berwick; Luffness holds its own against its neighbours.

Luffness New Golf Club

East Lothian, Scotland

Overview

Luffness New Golf Club is an 18 hole links golf course in Aberlady, Longniddry, East Lothian, Scotland.

Luffness New GC is an Old Tom Morris design from 1894. The club's roots are intertwined with Kilspindie as much as its holes are with Gullane 3. Luffness Golf Club split into Kilspindie Golf Club and Luffness New Golf Club, establishing the two East Lothian stalwarts. Kilspindie brought in Willie Park Sr and Luffness New called upon the services of Old Tom Morris for their new layouts.

The course is the first you see on the right-hand side of the road heading into Gullane from Edinburgh. The first 5 holes lie on the east side or clubhouse side of the A198. The remaining 13 are on the west side of the road mixed in with Gullane No. 3.

Donald Steel wrote the course is not made to test giants but to give pleasure to the rank and file golfer, adding: "The architectural defence is its network of bunkers: neat, well defined and well-shaped." Bobby Locke thought enough of Luffness New to say the club had one of the best sets of greens in all of golf.
