Lundin Golf Club, Fife Scotland

Lundin Golf Club, Fife Scotland Highlights

A real “hidden” stretch of linksland exists on the far south coast of Fife, stretching from the town of Lundin Links to Leven, one which used to be a single, 18-hole course. A century ago however, the club split in two, with each getting nine holes of the existing links, and property on the other side of the railroad to build a second nine. These two courses are now Lundin Golf Club and Leven Links, both Open Final Qualifying courses when held at St. Andrews, and Lundin Golf Club is particularly strong, an interesting mix of links and parkland. The opening hole at Lundin Golf Club, running high above Scotland’s famous Firth of Forth upon which famous Muirfield sits on the other side, is one of the most intimidating in Scotland. From there, the next 3 holes at Lundin Golf Club continue down the coast, before arriving at the stone boundary separating Lundin Golf Club from Leven Links. Here, at the “Mile Dyke” that was the line at which the clubs were split in two, Lundin Golf Club turns perpendicular, with a superb short, linksy par-3, before crossing the remnants of the old railroad into the “new” part of the Lundin course, high up on a hill, with impressive views over the Firth. Whereas the first 5 holes at Lundin Golf Club are distinctly links, you now enter some parkland, and Lundin Golf Club has some very interesting holes on this side of the tracks as well. One in particular, Lundin Golf Club’s downhill 14th (named “Perfection”), is one of the prettiest in Fife and this region of Scotland. Finally, you cross back over the tracks, and back into the linksland, and head back towards the Lundin Golf Club clubhouse in a demanding finishing stretch. We at Hidden Links love the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland, far beyond just incorporating St. Andrews, and a day here at Lundin Golf Club is one to savor!
