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.

The hospitality in the clubhouse was great. Good food, great service and members and staff very friendly.
Club Secretary came and chatted to us about our experience, which was a really nice touch.

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.

Mr 2.4 rated 2 out of 5 - May 15 2013

Played this on Monday for the 3rd time and was slightly dissapointed. the way the course is layed out is fantastic but unfortunatly the green at this current moment could possibly put me off going again. I understand we havent had great weather but i have municiple courses nearer to home with green 10x better. practice facilities are decent but could be doing with a range type area and not just a net. For £100 a for the four of us i cant really moan but lets face it you can play the torrance or kittocks for the same price. The prev post talkes about the greens being amazing and on prev occasions this has been the case. unfortunatly not at this time of year.

A very nice course and clubhouse with a lovely finishing hole and several others along the way.

Perhaps a little pricey, but well worth the money as a the course was in good condition.
