Archerfield Links

Archerfield is a magnificent estate situated between Gullane and North Berwick in picturesque East Lothian.

Not that its golfing past is any less historic. Situated between the 8th hole at Muirfield and the 9th at North Berwick, it is believed that golf has been played over this land for five centuries or more. What is certain is that inhabitants of Archerfield House and their hardworking staff enjoyed a game of golf here throughout the second half of the 19th century on the original 13-hole course. Indeed, it was such a desirable place to play that local reverend, John Kerr, wrote in 1896 that: With help from North Berwick professional Ben Sayers, the course was extended to eighteen holes around 1910 and was later described by noted Times golf correspondent Bernard Darwin,  " the most enchanting short course in the world."

In keeping with the abundance of majestic flora and fauna, the course designer has worked diligently to achieve a seamless alliance with nature. The result is a golfing experience with timeless appeal. A superb mixture of sandy links and pine forest, historic Archerfield has truly been reborn.
