Charleton Golf and Country Club
Charleton Golf & Country Club boasts a reputation for being one of the most attractive golf courses in Fife. It sits just minutes from St. Andrews but it offers impressive views over the Firth of Forth that make it a completely unique experience. The parkland layout starts out gently enough but really becomes challenging on the fourth hole, which is a par 5 that plays uphill. There are numerous bunkers strategically placed around the greens and the occasional water hazard comes into play, perhaps most notably on the tricky par-4 11th. The par-4 17th is the signature hole, known for its second shot that is played over a wall onto a narrow green. In addition to the course, Charleton Golf & Country Club also boasts a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course and a driving range.

When we arrived we spoke to local members who were all so friendly and welcoming. Although the club house gone the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and all facilities we needed were there. The course and greens were in fantastic condition and we will certainly come back. Thank you
Well worth it
Currently there is no clubhouse which we knew about prior to our arrival. Nevertheless we were warmly welcomed and immediately felt encouraged by the enthusiasm of the gentleman on duty in the makeshift clubhouse. We could still get a coffee and a sandwich either at the start or at the turn.
The front nine has some great elevation changes and some lovely views over the Forth...
The course was neat and tidy and you could see that there was some attention to detail. The greens weren't the quickest but were consistent throughout our round. (Bearing in mind the torrential rainfall five days previously)
Overall a good test of golf, some wonderful views and a testimony to the work the greens staff were obviously putting in.
We played Scotscraig GC the day before and although that place comes with a reputation, it wasn't a patch on this course.
Charleton, for the time of year, was in great condition. Fairways and greens, great to play off. My playing partner commented on how “true” the greens were running. No clubhouse facilities due to a recent fire, but did not spoil our golf experience at all. Would definitely recommend Charleton to everyone. We will be back!
All the greens needed improvement, very much like putting on a wet carpet, very slow.
Layout of the course was very good, but signage from green to next tee needs improvement
Greens had just been scarified and were very poor for putting on. I think we should have been informed when booking or on arrival and I don’t think charging the full green fee was justified,
really enjoyable parkland course
Six of us played this course. we were able to book at short notice. Whilst the. clubhouse is no longer there having recently been burned down this did not affect our enjoyment. A lovely course well laid out.
Great little course! Great layout and variety of holes plenty chances for birdie but plenty of danger aswell with rough and well placed bunkers and hazards! I know we still in lockdown the course just need a few tweaks with pace of the greens and it will be super! I will be back soon to play again!
Great layout quirky course
Great course layout. Have to keep it in play to score due to very heavy rough and at time’s tight fairways. Good challenge. Greens were slow but acceptable for first week after lockdown! Can’t wait to come back once they have been cut short and are rolling fast. This would top off the experience for me. All in all definitely worth a visit.
The course wasn’t too expensive. However the greens were terribly slow. They haven’t been cut in day. The fairways also a bit long as well.
Disappointing golf experience
Having played Charlton golf course so many times in the past we were so disappointed with the condition of the course which previously had always been in excellent condition and a challenge to play. The only part of the course that almost lived up to previous games played there was the greens. The rest of the course was a mess.
2 ball bounce game
Very wet , little shelter on course. If you are not quite straight on all shots hitting the fairways etc you will lose your ball. Thick long grass down both sides of fairways. Difficult greens with lots of undulations. Good day out.
Gem of a course
Great course. Some challenging holes for all level of golfers. Some Challenging undulating greens. First nine give some great views across the Firth of Forth. Well worth a visit. Not a great club house, but course a credit to the ground staff.
Played course today great game and course in great condition plus it 52 weeks a year on summer greens when all course in area are on winter greens and mats will def be back
