Course Description

Burntisland is home to the tenth oldest club in the world, with golf been played at Burntisland since 1797, with some historians suggesting that it actually dates back to 1688.

First surveyed by Old Tom Morris, the Dodhead parkland layout of 1896 was designed by two-time Open champion Willie Park Jnr and updated by James Braid in 1922 and overlooks the Firth of Forth with Edinburgh Castle and the Forth bridges visible from the eighth hole.

The course is unlike any other in Fife, perched high above the sea and incorporating to great effect an industrial legacy of abandoned quarries. It is just shy of 6,000 yards.

The quarries form unusual and precipitous hazards at the 11th, 12th and 16th holes.

Equally, steep drops lie on the south out of bounds edge of the course at the ninth, 10th and 18th holes.

Few balls will be retrieved if they stray at any of these holes. It would be perhaps be overstating the case to call Burntisland a very difficult course, but with par-3s like the third and fifth and par-4s like the tenth and 11th, careful course management is required.
