What the club says: Situated in Markinch near Glenrothes and set within 140 acres of superb woodland, this beautiful layout opened in 1983 and, with a par of 71 and measuring 6,300 yards from the men's tees, is a good challenge for golfers of all abilities.

The course has hosted many PGA events including the Scottish Assistants Championship and with its close proximity to St Andrews is the ideal venue for the visiting golfer. With the natural contours being the inspiration behind the layout, the course is a fine example of the best in traditional parkland design.

Balbirnie failings in evidence

As usual for Balbirnie at this time of year, there were loads of leaves lying on the semi rough and on the fairways. This is particularly annoying when it can be very difficult to find your ball in the middle of the fairway ! Balbirnie' s worst feature though is always the poor drainage that is evident at every hole. Standing water on a hill is something that just should'nt happen.

Very pleasant parkland layout, with holes shaped by mature woodlands but not so tight that the trees capture every wayward shot. Good length off the yellows so you get to work most of the clubs in your bag.
