Course Review and Comments

An American here. I have played almost all of the highly acclaimed golf courses in the States, and I also played the Old in St. Andrews on my trip. I must say, I would have a hard time choosing, if given the choice of which to play again if North Berwick is one of the choices. It seemed as if I was playing golf in a time since passed. It was not the typical well-manicured gardens of the courses we have at home, nor did I feel like a tourist, as I did at St. Andrews. I somehow felt welcome and comfortable at North Berwick. In a weird way, I believe I sensed the heartbeat of true golf. Generous landing areas with readable greens. Some blind shots that add character to the layout. On my deathbed, I will still remember the walls at North Berwick that crossed the fairways. I will also remember the redan green, just not so fondly, I struggled on that hole. The fresh wind blew from the sea very stiffly, which is what I wanted to experience. I want to thank management for allowing a golf loving visitor a chance to enjoy the roots of golf by leaving most of the course in a natural state. This is not only a golf course, but a piece of history. It is a must play if you love the game. The pub above the 18th hole is fantastic.
