Anstruther Golf Club has a prime shorefront location with stunning views that stretch past Anstruther Harbor to the Isle of May. The club dates back to 1890, successfully surviving two wars. It began as a seven-hole golf course but throughout the years has expanded into a challenging nine-hole layout. The demanding fifth hole, also known as the 'Rockies,' is touted as being on of the toughest par 3s in the UK. This difficult risk-reward hole will definitely make or break your score. It begins with a shot from an elevated tee to a small fairway that is guarded by steep gorse to the right and a bank of rough to the left. Most golfers walk away happy with a bogey. The challenges don't stop at the fifth hole, though, it is only the first in a trio of holes that is considered Anstruther G.C.'s own version of Amen Corner.

panoramic views

I played this lovely 9 hole course in true "Old Tom Morris" style, with my 7 hickory golf clubs. Most of the course is played on a cliff top situated between the picturesque towns of Anstruther and Pittenweem. The panoramic views out over the Firth of Forth and the North Sea are outstanding. The course is very well maintained, with wide fairways, forgiving semi rough and excellent greens. Keep the ball reasonably straight and you should score well. You're on your own though on the famous par 3 (5th hole) "Rockies" Good Luck!
