Fife boasts over 45 famous, historic and challenging golf courses. A wide range of beautiful parkland, inland and links courses await your arrival in The Home of Golf.

Follow in the footsteps of past champions and enjoy breathtaking views with a round of golf at The Old Course in St Andrews, which is set to host the prestigious golf tournament The Open Championship in July 2015. This 600-year-old golf course still challenges today and has hosted The Open Championship more times than any other venue. As well as the Old Course, there are 10 other courses at St Andrews where you can also take a swing, including seven run by St Andrews Links. The New Course is, oddly, more than a century old and was designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris, the four-times Open Champion who designed Muirfield, Carnoustie and Royal Dornoch.

In addition to the stunning courses of St Andrews, the region of Fife has other magnificent courses to choose from. The likes of Ladybank Golf Club, Lundin Golf Links or Scotscraig Golf Course all offer an exceptional game, with bags of history. A more recent addition to Fife’s hallowed golfing greens is Kingbarns, located six miles down the coast from St Andrews. Opened in 2000, it was immediately praised as one of the region’s finest courses.

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship takes place over three venues - Kingsbarns, the Old Course at St Andrews and Carnoustie in Angus - every October. You can also experience the game of a bygone era and try golfing with a difference. Kingarrock Golf Course is the only place in the whole of Europe where you can play hickory golf with old wooden shafted golf clubs. Modern clubs are banned on this 2,022 yard course where you will be provided with a spoon, driving iron, mashie, niblick and putter to work your way around. 

Check out the Fife Golf Guide, The Fife Golf Trails, or the area's golfing itineraries for more information. To make organising a golfing trip to Fife easier, book up to five separate rounds of golf, on five different courses, on five different days, at First in Fife  Golf.

Finally, when booking your accommodation remember to look out for the Golfers Welcome scheme. They accredit accommodation providers that offer dedicated golf facilities like secure club storage, weather updates and details of local golf suppliers.
