Edinburgh Braid Hills No 1, has a spectacular view of Edinburgh, and is a bargain at under 10 per round. Also consider  the Royal Burgess or the East Course at Dalmahoy. Then there are the delights of Silverknowes or Murrayfield Golf Club next to the world-famous zoological gardens.
Day 3 - Gullane

Gullane the no1 course is the one to play. It is used as a qualifying course for the Open, and is a true links course with panoramic views from the 7th tee

Muirfield gets booked up years ahead, so it can be difficult to get a round. Dates from 1744 it is naturally an Open Championship course - probably one of the fairest in golf.  Much loved by Jack Nicklaus

North Berwick North Berwick is a favourite for many golfers. There are two excellent courses in the town, the East (Glen Golf Club) and West Links, with the West being the better. A very good new course  Whitekirk Golf Club is only a few miles south

Dunbar Dunbar is another golfer's delight with a first class course at its East Links and a testing course at Dunbar Winterfield. Dunbar dates from 1794. It has been used as an Open qualifying course

Haddington  a different sort of course as it is inland. Fine scenery with a  backdrop of the Lammermuir Hills.

Musselburgh Musselburgh is home to one of the oldest golf courses in the world, where James IV and James VI are said to have played. However, apart from its age the better courses are Monktonhall or Royal Musselburgh ( A lush parkland course which requires both length and accuracy to score well)
