Golf has been played at Burntisland in Fife since 1797 – historians suggest 1688! The original Burntisland Golf Club is officially recognised as the 10th oldest club in the world.

Burntisland Golf House Club possesses a character quite unlike that of any other course in Fife. Perched as it is high above the sea and incorporating to great effect an industrial legacy of abandoned quarries.

At 5993 yards it is not long but even so is remarkable for the small area into which it has been squeezed. To make the most of the available land a few holes crisscross and a number of greens lie in the path of subsequent tees.

A degree of alertness and care is therefore required if you are an unfamiliar visitor.
