Formed in 1894, Luffness New Golf Club hosted the Scottish Senior Open Amateur Championships in 2012. Situated close to Gullane and Muirfield. The course is famous for its greens, described as among the best in the region
Luffness New is a good course for those who focus on the game and play straight. It has thick rough and distinctive bunkers that punish the errant short. At 6328 yards and par 70 it can be a tight course when the wind is blowing. The wind plays a significant part in the round and can change direction at every hole.
Luffness New Golf Club is probably the oldest new course in the world. It was created in 1894 by Tom Morris. The original Luffness Links were on the west of the present course. Some members from the original club broke away to form the Luffness New Golf Club. The course includes nine original holes from Luffness Old Club founded in 1867.
