Dunnikier Park Golf Club is an 18-hole course located in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, 30 miles north of Edinburgh and 20 miles south of St. Andrews. Formed in 1963, the golf course has evolved over the years.

Dunnikier is 6,546 yards with a par of 72. The Lomond Hills serve as a backdrop on several holes, providing a stunning view. The front nine is in secluded woodland, while the back nine gets you out into civilization.

Dunnikier Park Golf Club's signature hole is No. 7, called "The Dip," a 368-yard par 4. The fairway disappears into a dip and then rises to the green. It's not just challenging, it's the best looking hole, too. It doesn't get much easier on No. 8, named "The Deception." The 383-yard par 4 is uphill all the way. Avoid the fairway bunkers with your drive then carry over the bunkers protecting the green.

No. 9 and 12 are two of the four par 5s and the two longest holes. Nine is 547 yards. Hit just an average tee shot, and you are in good position for a second shot over the hill. Twelve is monstrous at 597 yards. If you play off the "Tiger Tee," it's a ridiculous 650-yard hole. Make sure you hit if long, though. If your drive is short, you might not even make it to the ladies tee, the hole is THAT long.

A major extension and refurbishment was carried out to the clubhouse in 2001. It was upgraded to modern standards. New locker rooms and visitor changing facilities were added. The main lounge can seat over 100 guests, and dress is casual except for Saturday nights when there is a strict dress code after 8 p.m.

Kirkcaldy is one of the largest towns in Fife and has a history of tourism. Visitors are always welcomed at the club.

Winter Greens !!

first 9 was great.
No one said it was winter greens on back 9.
Drove the 10th over the hill (blind)
Got to the top of the hill to realise we had both out drove the winter green by 100 yards!
Not good.
Green conditions looked great but were closed.
Ruined the round to be honest

Good course, but really disappointed today

Winter course

Turned up at the course today but nobody told it was a full winter course, tees, and greens only found out after the first hole on meeting someone else who wasn't a member and had paid the full fee's, not impressed, not a single member on the course it should have been closed as standing water everywhere and some holes were unplayable, so we walked off after 9 they could have phoned us to tell us, we would have changed the day

Don’t make a tee time right behind the senior men

When I made my tee time, I was not informed that I was following a tournament of Senior Men. So from now on, I will do my homework. I love playing this course, but I didn’t love that it took me 4 hours to get around the course.

Nice rolling fairways

Played this after a nights rainfall so the first cut was very clingy making shots from off the fairway difficult. Course was in very good condition although the greens had just been tyned and sanded. Lovely coutse and will def. play again.

Great Value for Money

As a Council owned course it is one of the best kept and challenging. Well worth the rate paid. The clubhouse was also friendly with good food.

This course was a fair challenge in good condition.

This course was excellent value for money. Having not played myself for a while due to injury I found the course to be a fair challenge. The course condition was also very good and the greens in particular we're excellent. The staff were also polite and helpful. Definitely recommend to my friends.
