The Old Course at St Andrews is one of the courses featured in the new Fife Golf Trails guide

With the SSE Scottish Senior Open having taken place earlier this month (August), there’s never been a better time to check out the courses in Fife which can proudly boast to being the Home of Golf.

With 50 golf courses to play across the region, you might a need a little guidance on where to start – and here it is! Seven Fife golf trails have been newly launched by the Fife Golf Partnership, with each trail offering a different golfing experience.

So whether you’re a golfer who is also after great dining, a classic links player, looking to explore Carnegie Country or after courses to take the kids to, there’s options aplenty in this new guide.

Written by renowned golf journalist Malcolm Campbell, the guide offers seven distinct golf trails including Open Championships qualifying Courses, Ladies Golf, Hidden Treasures, Carnegie Country and the Gourmet Golf trail. While St Andrews courses like the Old Course and Kingsbarns are included, many more across Fife, such as Charleton, Dunfermline, and Burntisland, form the trails.

With all eyes on Scotland next year as the Ryder Cup 2014 takes place at Gleneagles, it’s the perfect time to play a round on some of the most historic courses in the country and tee-off on some of your new favourites.

The guides are available from Visitor Information Centres across Scotland and in the north of England and or take a look at our great advice on golfing in Fife and download the guide.
