Given its seaside location overlooking picturesque farmland to the north and the Forth Estuary to the south, golfers would expect Scoonie Golf Club to be a traditional links layout but it is actually a parkland course. The stunning views of the surrounding countryside contrast nicely with the views of the sea. Long hitters might be disappointed since the golf course is quite short at 5,494 yards with the longest hole only reaching to 430 yards. It is a tight layout that is tough but fair. Accuracy is a necessity since players can find themselves facing a handful of problems from going even just a little wide. The club proudly boasts well manicured fairways and greens that are maintained to the highest standard. It is because of the excellent conditions that Scoonie Golf Club has garnered quite a following.

Good course back 9 tougher than the front 9.

Had a lovely day out at scoonie. Course was in very good condition although a few of the greens were a bit bobbley.. its well laid out no long walks between greens and next tee.. back 9 surprisingly hilly for a links course, which made it more challenging. I would say a few of the par 4's are greenable for big hitters . but there are enough well placed traps to make that potentially a bad choice !
Staff were really friendly and the food in the clubhouse was fantastic and great value. You can get a 3 course meal for £14 ... We had the fish as out main and it was fresh and delicious.. overall a great day and we will certainly be back

Great no fuss course

Down to earth course, some enjoyable holes. Great value and worth playing. Busy when I played. Maybe worth checking with pro shop for a quiet time if a single golfer.

PicK up sticks

Lots of fallen twigs lying around,I know it was windy for a few weeks but I would have thought the twigs could have been removed, apart from that the course was in good condition for the time of year and there have been many improvements.

Windy weather
Walked

Scoonie on a relatively quiet day

Course is in good condition albeit there are some areas of the course that are under or need repair. its a municipal course so would expect maintenance being dependent upon local authority funding. Bunkers particularly difficult to play out from when theres Pebbles and small stones mixed in with quite a rough sand. All in all its a course thats easy to walk and is forgiving , never tried the off course amenities , too many covid rules being applied just now to take any risks.
