About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Style Parkland
Par 70
Length 5972 yards
Slope 128
Rating 69.6

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.

Brilliant

First time playing the course since moving to fife and it was superb. The guys in the pro shop were great. Gave a wee insight to the course and we’re friendly and chatting away for a good bit and Very helpful. The course was in great condition and greens were brilliant. Every hole different and had its own unique challenges. To top it off the views are outstanding. Nice clubhouse with friendly staff. Will definitely be back soon for another round.

Highly recommended

First time playing here. The pro shop gave tips on how to play certain holes, particularly the 10th. The course was in excellent condition and the green were true. Although I managed to avoid the bunkers, they were more links-type with flat bottoms with very neat and well-kept, steep rivetted faces rather than the saucer-shaped traps typical of parkland courses. The weather was kind, very little wind and sunny conditions.
Not a long course, but the hills and blind-shots made it necessary to think more about the shot to be played.
I will visit again when the breeze is up to see if I enjoy it as much.

Hidden Gem - Gorgeous Day up on the Burntisland Hill

Hailing from Edinburgh, my partner and I decided to try a course slightly further afield given the beautiful weather. Trawling through GolfNow we came across Burntisland at a very reasonable price (I think £15-20, can't remember exactly).
From the moment we arrived, all the staff we encountered were lovely and extremely helpful. The chap who lives in the flat above the clubhouse was especially chatty.
The course itself was in terrific nick for the time of year. The greens had been recently cored & sanded which I understand is completely necessary. Some incredibly characteristic & challenging holes. From memory the 10th was a standout with it's hidden green. Also, if you catch a clear day, like we did, some of the views across the Firth of Forth are nothing short of spectacular.
Would very much recommend this place as a mid-range option if you're looking for a pleasant course, nice people and incredible scenery. Very much a hidden gem.

Burntisland Golf Club

I received a phone call early in the morning form the pro shop to say due to the freeze overnight , to say although the course was open, some of the greens were on temporary greens , I really appreciated that and more clubs should do this , very nice touch and made me feel appreciated. Any way having played the course several times before, I knew what to expect. The course has some amazing views , and the mixture of holes are difficult , but some are very much scoring holes. The Summer greens were very good for the time of year, however the Temporary Greens were playable, but were in some odd positions on the fairways, however it was still to get out for a swing and putt.

Really good challenging course with brilliant views. Have played this course a few times now and always look forward to it. The course is always looked after really well. The variation in the holes is one of the reasons to visit the course. Would definitely recommend playing this course and the pro is always friendly, helpful and passionate about the course.

Great value.

The course was in fantastic condition for the time of year, especially the greens. Good variety of holes short & long. Friendly staff member in the shop before the round made us very welcome & answered any queries fully. All in all great value for money for a course in excellent condition.

Great fun in horrible weather

Played Burntisland in very heavy rain which did obviously impact the entire course but in spite of that I have to say it was a great looking course with a some great holes and definitely a big challenge! Loved the 17th, it was very quirky and we did get lost a couple of times but all in all it was a joy to play.
I can imagine it being very popular in warmer weather with some absolutely spectacular views.
Staff in the pro shop were excellent and because of the conditions we played in, we were given a voucher for a 2 ball because he didn’t want our memory of the course being a wet one! First class service in my opinion and the food in the clubhouse was amazing! As was the service.
Even without the free voucher we had every intention of coming back to play in the new year but that was a great gesture.
Play Burntisland when it isn’t pouring down with rain and you’re in for a treat.

Sportive course with brilliant views

The course is quite sportive if you walk. Lot of up and down but inbetween you get nice views of the forth and the coastline on the other side. We will come again!
