If you're looking for stately history and lore in your Scottish golf, don't look at Cowdenbeath Golf Club. Built in 1988, it certainly doesn't have the seniority of St. Andrews, but it makes up what it lacks in gravitas with character and charm.

Located six miles east of Denfermline, Cowdenbeath Golf Club was built as a nine-hole course on the old Dora Coral mine site (the golf course is still commonly known as "Dora"). Cowdenbeath was ready for play in 1991 and extended to 18 holes in 1996. The length is now 6,207 yards.

It's a parkland layout with, what its Web site describes as, "gentle undulations and tree-lined fairways." The site also boasts that Cowdenbeath is a "challenge for both high and low handicappers."

The golf course features only three par 3s, but also only one par 5, No. 17, a 526-yard beast. The longest par 4 is No. 8 at 428 yards.

The clubhouse at Cowdenbeath Golf Club opened in 1998.

Lovely Track

I’ve played the Dora course a few times now. I’ve always found it in good condition, sometimes a little wet underfoot but the tees, fairways and greens have Always been well maintained.

It’s not a long course but you have to find the fairways, there’s around 10 yards of rough either side before it then becomes very long grass. Placement is key or you will lose golf balls.

Great value and normally able to get round in under 3 hours.
