Par 68

Rating N/A

Lochgelly Golf Club is a relatively flat parkland course with views over the Meadows, the Lomonds and the Ochills. The views are worth the price of a round alone. It is located in Fife, Scotland, the heart of golfing country. Visitors have described it as a must-play course when in the area.

The golf course kicks off with a par 5 but only 479 yards. It's the only par 5 on the course and the longest hole at Lochgelly. The course is 2,729 yards, and par is 68.

No. 3 is a par 3, but certainly not a gimme at 222 yards. There are five par 3s on the Lochgelly Golf Club course, spread out liberally, with three on the front nine and two in the back. The back nine ends with a 319-yard par 4.

Lochgelly Golf Club has a pro shop, which is well-stocked by the resident PGA Professional.

Great wee course

We were greeted by a very friendly & informative starter who gave us good intel for the course. Beautiful setting and some marvellous holes, some of them a lot trickier than they seem. Overall in great condition, only thing I would say is some of the tees were a bit dubious, but other than that a super course. Afterwards we went in for lunch and again greeted by very friendly staff, food was fabulous as was the hospitality.

Great value and short but challenging course

Lochgelly was very welcoming and great value for money. The fairways and greens are in really good condition and the layout poses a mid handicap golfers with a good challenge. Some great views of the Ochil Hills in the distance and keeping the ball on the fairway is key. Staff and members friendly, welcoming and professional. Will definitely return for another round.

Excellent condition

Played lochgelly with three friends through golfnow for a bargain £14.
The course looks wide open but it's deceptive as there are a number of strategically placed hazards.
Some narrow driving through trees was a regular feature also a couple of water hazards as well.
Course was in great nick especially the greens which were first class.
We have payed more money for a round and was not as enjoyable as Lochgelly.
Would definitely recommend a round.

carnage

In the middle of the course, there are at least 5 fairways that run up and down side by side and are no more than 50 yards wide each. On the day that I played and in mid-morning balls were flying everywhere, no fore calls were being made, players were wandering about the wrong fairways , groups were being held up and it was an experience. Other parts of the course open out and are enjoyable to play. Course condition was good.

Played here yesterday on a fine spring day. The course was quiet. Lochgelly is a most enjoyable course offering flat terrain surrounded by good views of the Fife hills. The man in the pro shop was extremely friendly and welcoming. All in all Lochgelly represents excellent value for money.

Lochgelly Golf club

Course was not surprisingly busy as it was a sunny day. Conditions were fairly good. Staff and members are friendly and offer good advice to visitors. Unable to use the facilities due to COVID restrictions. On the downside parking was a bit difficult as the car park was a little small. However this did not detract from the usual good day at Lochgelly. Would have no hesitation in recommending this course.

Friendly

As a couple playing at this course for the fist time, we found this to be the friendliest course we had ever played at. From the starter, to the people starting or finish g rounds everyone was helpful and friendly. A solo player on course even let us ay through as he was in no hurry!
