The Fife Golf Partnership

What is the Fife Golf Partnership?

Established in November 2011 the Fife Golf Partnership (FGP) is the new organisation of Fife Golf courses, accommodation providers, places to eat, training providers, golf travel trade and industry trade associations working together to develop and improve the market position of Fife as a must-visit golf destination – to bring more golf visitors here and generate more revenue for all members of the Partnership, and Fife. 

What do we do?

The FGP is a membership organisation; open to golf clubs and courses across Fife and Fife tourism operators and businesses with an interest in golf tourism.

  • Offer the consumer a one stop shop for booking, sourcing best deals etc.

Most activity will happen at local level with members working with the board to improve performance, reputation and develop new opportunities.
