Cupar Golf Club
Founded in 1855, it is said that Cupar Golf Club is the oldest nine-hole club in the world. It did not settle into its current location atop the Hill of Tarvit until 1892 though. The course sprawls across rolling, hilly parkland with small greens that are cut into the hillside. There are alternative tees so that the course can be played as an 18-hole golf course. The layout requires a variety of shot-making skills, forming a course that appeals to all abilities. While it does not offer the level of challenge of the nearby St. Andrews, it is much less intimidating for beginners but no less enjoyable. Cupar Golf Club's final hole offers an excellent birdie opportunity. This short par 4 is within driving range to the green that sits in front of the clubhouse.

Quirky and fun
Had no expectations or preconceptions. Thoroughly enjoyed it - hilly and a great workout with gorgeous views from the top. Great condition and imho criminally overlooked.
Nice course very well maintained, we hadn't realised that it was on the side of a very steep hill, ball control so difficult even first cut wouldn't hold ball. it just rolled to bottom of fairways kept going. Having said that I still enjoyed playing there.
Tough course, but well kept
Tough little 9-hole course situated on the side of a hill. Greens are far from easy as well. It was in very good condition though.
Tricky conditions due to the lack of growth on the course. The hot weather has dried the course out and made everything very hard, which with the sloping course makes it extremely difficult.
Despite this it was a good afternoon, and even with a club competition ongoing play was at a decent pace & the weather was good.
Everyone was very welcoming and chatty and with the lovely smells coming from the kitchen wish I had time to stay for food.
Good for beginners
Fairly straightforward and short course. Not too challenging. Very pleasant course and overall in good condition Unfortunately greens were Not on good condition . No pro shop. Bar wasn't open. Good for beginners and juniors.
On a side of a hill
Course in good condition particularly the greens but no a good course and a hard walk with the course being on a side of a hill
Our first time to visit this course. The course is a nine hole, a good challenge as half of the course is on steep slopes. The overall condition was very good especially the greens! My only criticism is the parking is down the hill a couple hundred metres on the road. The regulars were friendly and helpful. The scorecard could do with a small map to help future visitors?? Overall we enjoyed our day. Thank you.
Cupar Golf Club
Very pleasantly surprised with the excellent condition of the course for the time of year. It is very evident the greenkeeping standard is very good. Tee boxes, fairways, greens & traps are first rate. Lovely views add to a very nice experience. Hope to play again very soon.
