Fife Golf Courses - Fife golf course guide

This July will see the following guest return for the 28th week-
"Chris and Yvonne Have asked me to write up some of the golf courses I have played in the surrounding area. In hopes it will help you make your choices of where to play easier.
Most of these courses are listed in the booklets Chris supplies to you.":-

A poor man’s Pebble Beach the first 8 holes play along the Firth of Forth.
Extensive views from all around the course of Edinburgh. Short but tricky
A good test for the average golfer.

Balcome Links
This is a spectacular golf setting and a testing challenge. A classic links
Course set up with good character built in each hole.

Leven Links
A classic wind swept seaside links a true test of your golfing skills. The
final qualifying course for the Open at St Andrews. If you are not hitting
them straight bring lots of balls

Pitreavie Golf Club
I did not get around to playing this one but any course designed by
Alistair McKenzie (Angusta National) is a must play. I ran out of time.

St Andrews Links Old Course
No more need be said. We got on the third time my son-in-law and I called
In for the lottery. Shot an 86 !!!

Braid Hills #1
The best £8 investment you can make in golf. The best views of Edinburgh
anywhere and one of the true tests of golf within the city. Be in good shape
before trying to climb this course. If your are a mountain goat try Braid Hills #2.

The Glen Golf Club (North Berwick)
Marvellous views, a challenging test of golf in a spectacular location.

All you have to do is look at the booklets and choose one to play and I don’t think
You can go wrong.

Hit long and prosper
