The Archerfield Links development occupies part of a magnificent estate located midway between golfing hotspots in Gullane and North Berwick. Indeed, while the development is relatively new it is believed that golfers have hit shots across its fields for many a century. The property enjoys beautiful views across the Lothian coastline toward Fife, with the Fidra Island especially prominent from the golf holes nearest the coastline.
Both courses at Archerfield were designed by tour professional turned golf designer DJ Russell. The Older Fidra Links features a mix of open links-like land, and holes set through established pine forests while the Dirleton Links is described by the golf club as follows; “On coastal land that has hosted golf for over 100 years, DJ Russell has created the 18 holes of the Dirleton Links. It’s a challenging expression of a traditional Scottish links course with its sweeping fairways, deep, menacing bunkers and undulating dunes bordering the fairways. Already enjoyed by a quartet of Masters Champions, from Gary Player to Ian Woosnam.”
