Golfshake Rating: 4.46

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.56

Review Comment: "If you are ever in the Tayside/Fife area then this is a must. Lots of varying holes where a bit of thought is required before just taking out the driver. The 9th is amazing. Water both sides of the fairway, be straight or its it's wet time."

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.43

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.42

Green Fees: From £15

Review Comment: "There are some fantastic views all around the course. You can check progress on the new harbour extension from the 10th tee and enjoy arguably the best view on the course from the 18th tee where you can look out over the harbour, the beach, the city and on on out to Deeside."

Location: Fife

Golfshake Rating: 4.37

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.25

Green Fees: From £18

Review Comment: "Really fun shorter course with a nice variety of holes. Played it on a misty evening which may have added to the grandeur of some of the tee shots. Plenty of elevation change to keep players on their toes - and a really dramatic finish with 14, 15 and 16 tucked away in a tight corner of the course."

Auchterarder Golf Club

Location: Perthshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.22

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.12

Green Fees: From £50

Review Comment: "Excellent course in central Scotland, located adjacent to Gleneagles' PGA Centenary Course. The course is in great condition, particularly the greens. Can feel a little claustrophobic at times with a number of tees and greens close together, but as long as the tee times are spaced out properly it's not a real problem. Very nice facilities in the clubhouse too. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area."

Royal Musselburgh Golf Club

Royal Musselburgh

Location: Lothian

Golfshake Rating: 4.23

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.00

Green Fees: From £35

Review Comment: "A nice inland Scottish parkland design course, very mature trees and rough to avoid, a little tight in places, some lovely shaped holes. A very majestic old fashioned style clubhouse, nice little shop. Very friendly staff and cracking food."

Powfoot Golf Club

Location: Dumfries & Galloway

Golfshake Rating: 4.51

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.00

Green Fees: From £45

Review Comment: "Amazing links experience and a really really tough course, especially when the wind blows. If you are ever able to play here, do it. This course doesn’t give you anything and you work hard for a good score."

Kinghorn Golf Club

Location: Fife

Golfshake Rating: 4.36

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.00

Green Fees: From £15

Review Comment: "One of Fife's gems - not the longest course you'll ever play but with testing hills, quirky challenges and views to die for it's well worth checking out."
