What the club says: 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.

Dougal

Played an open here recently nice course with some quirky holes and lovely views, experience spoiled completely by cored and sanded greens which were horrendous. Not good enough, at least let people know the state of the greens before playing.

Another gem in Fife

Absolute fantastic course, if your in the area this place must be put on your list to play. Layout is cracking and a good test for all abilities, the stand out is the 10th. Will visit again.

Amazing views, entertaining parkland course

Enjoyable, relatively striaghtforward course with great views across the Forth to Edinburgh and the bridges. Lush fairways and well-maintained greens provide a very pleasant test of target golf with mostly short par 4s protected by rolling fairways.

Excellent, unique

Built around a number of old shale quarries, Dodhead offers a real challenge to golfers of all abilities. A range of length on the par 3s and 4s adds interest, as do the sloping greens. Above all, the views are simply spectacular: Edinburgh, the 3 bridges over the River Forth and a backdrop of 'The Binn', a volcanic plug to the north of the town, are all superb.
Course is very well presented and maintained. Staff in the very well stocked Pro shop very helpful, food and drink excellent. A great day out.

A great day

We arrived early and had some breakfast rolls (sausage, egg, bacon) which were just what we needed to start the day. All fairly priced. One of my friend's had his putter re-gripped in the pro-shop whilst we had our breakfast. Great job.
We played as a 4 ball and got held up a few times by a couple of 2 balls in front, but it didn't bother us.
First time playing Burntisland and I played it to my handicap (22), could have been much lower if not for some typical 8's on my card.
A great day, sun was shining wind was gusty, the course played great. Nice greens.

I look forward to coming back to Burntisland in the future, loved it.
