A real discovery. This is a really old course that looks like it hasn't been altered since 1896, and it's a lot quirkier and more interesting than appears when you look out onto a blank uphill from the clubhouse. Once you get to the top there are all sorts of interesting holes. The 5th is probably the most iconic, and probably impossible, hole on the course, 245 yards across any amount of junk onto a blind green beside the sea. Nothing to it. There are also some buildings on the course which are in play, which I really like.

There are five par 3s and four par 4s, but this isn't an easy 31. A single-figure player should be glad to cover 9 holes in 30-something. The only criticism I'd have is that £18 for 9 holes is quite a lot for such an out-of-the-way course. It's worth it – just – and definitely 9 holes on a lovely sunny day looking out to the North Sea are not to be missed, if you can arrange that.

A fantastic 9 hole course with a couple of exceptional adventurous holes - and the food in the restaurant is really good and served with flair.

Myself and the wife were staying in Pittenween which is walking distance from Anstruther Golf Club so I decided to have a quick knock one morning.

The cost is £18 for 9 holes and £28 for 18. It is just a 9 hole course so to play 18 it would be just 2 laps. Payment is by a honesty box the clubhouse.

The course itself is a mix of par 3 & 4's with some of the toughest par 3's I've ever played, one of which was voted the hardest Par 3 in the UK in 2007 (which i parred I might add). Most of the holes are down the side of the sea with superb views, even my wife enjoyed it as she walked the course with me.

The course is in superb condition and the greens are up their with some of the best I've played on. If you are in the are and have your clubs with you I would recommend a quick game on this course the only down side is the slightly expensive cost for 9 holes.

Played Anstrutrher a few day ago as part of a Week end of Golf in Scotland.
What a little gem to course look straight forward but is a good test with the famous long par 3 to catch you out. All in our party hadf a great time and the staff in Clubhouse were very friendly and helpful. We only had Bar Snack but they were excellent and good value.
If you are looking for a course with views this is ti with the Harbour and Estuary so play it if you get the chance you will not be let down

This is a super course - lovely views, interesting varied holes and a nice friendly bar/clubhouse. Fish and chips at the Anstruther fish bar afterwards rounds off tome well spent!
