About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Style Parkland
Par 70
Length 5993 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

Burntisland Golf House Club in Fife, Scotland, is an 18-hole golf course designed by architect Willie Park Jun. It's best described as having a parkland nature, although some holes have a links-type turf to hit off. The course is just under 6,000 yards and has a diversity of terrain.

The fun starts with three par 3s in the first six holes, but birdie opportunities abound. There's only one par 4 over 400 yards, for instance, so good length off the tee and control of mid-irons can lead to that elusive below-par score. The two par 5s are also tamable: No. 2 has a tricky two-tier green that's narrow from front to back, but 12 is much less challenging for the low-handicap golfer.

Throughout the golf course, however, control is key. Out of bounds lies to the left of the first four holes and the 18th, and to the right of nine and 10. You face a pond to the right on five, and you have to maneuver past a quarry on 12. Beyond that, the course throws up its share of trees, gorse and rough all over.

When you finish the course, check out the clubhouse, which offers a bar/lounge/dining area. The bar's open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. in the summer.

Quirky Course

A quirky course with some interesting and challenging holes. Could do with some signage to the next tees as hot list a few times, but the Greenkeeper kept popping up at the right moment. A bit wet but no surprise at this time of year. In dry conditions could help or hinder down some of the long hills!! Great welcome from the Pro and very helpful. - very Covid safe.

Great course layout and views

Really enjoyed the variety of this course, the views were great too. I was disappointed that the greens had been cored, sanded and smelled of fertilizer, which made it impossible to properly experience the greens. If normal greens I'd rate this course 4-5 star.

Stunning views, stunning course. Some tricky blind holes with an amazing backdrop. Never got the chance to see the greens in all their glory as they had been sanded for winter prep. I will be back

A Hidden Gem

What a pleasure. If you are looking for a great mix of golf and a fair test of your golf game I can only recommend this beautiful course. From the narrow halls of trees to the vast open holes that look over the Firth of Forth. Absolutely the best value for money you will get this side of the Missisipi River, happy playing.

Great course

What a course - fantastic views and a challenge for everyone with every hole offering a different challenge.

Welcomed brilliantly into the pro shop, and the value for money was great.

Course is a little confusing at times, and a couple of sign posts would’ve helped - but that is the only negative of a fantastic day of golf.

We played as a 4 x ball, and will definitely be back again.
