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.

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.

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.
