keep themselves to themselves and visitors are often not made welcome. The food on offer is good however and the course is a good test of links and inland.

Played Scotsgraig golf club today and it was amazing. The course is in great condition with full greens and no mats . The staff in the pro shop and in the club house make the environment of the place even better. I would recommend this course to anybody who plays golf as it is a real gem.

A most enjoyable visit! The course is really interesting, heathland amongst gorse, broom, pine and heather. Interesting holes, good fairways and greens, all in excellent condition. We were made very welcome by the clubhouse staff.

We had a great round of match play golf with the membership where local knowledge proved to be a winning factor and were treated like royalty. A wonderful course to play in a park like setting. After the round we spent time in the clubhouse for a great meal and enjoyed the history and local banter. Congratulations on their upcoming... More

My brother & I recently played this excellent course which we thoroughly enjoyed. The course is a good challenge, gently undulating in places but with good run on the ball and no unfair deviations into undeserved trouble. The scenery is picturesque, the club being located near the Tay estuary. The greens had been recently hollow tined and top-dressed but were... More

Due to celebrate their bi-centenary next year this remains a very high quality Golf Course. A warm welcome, a challenging course but one which despite the greens having been scarified and sanded they were in splendid condition/ A varied and interesting course all round which provided a most enjoyable afternoon's entertainment. My playing partner and I had the most wonderful... More

This was the first course we played to start our Scotland trip. It's the 13th oldest course in the world, but it is a very good test of your golfing ability. The staff was extremely friendly and the price was very affordable. Loved it!

I visited this gem of a course on Wednesday 7th September. My first thought on leaving the 18th green was, cannot wait to come back and play here again. The course is in great condition, I found it tough but fair. The greens were true, and the best we played on our weeks visit to Fife.
