Elmwood Golf Club sprawls across some of the most beautiful countryside in Fife, offering scenic views of Tarvit Hill and the Lomond Hills. Visitors are always welcome at this pay-and-play facility, which is owned and managed by Elmwood College. The golf course put into effect a successful environmental strategy that has resulted in a sizeable increase in wildlife and wildflowers. More than 9,000 trees were planted prior to construction of the course and there is minimal, if any, use of pesticides. The sound environmental and maintenance systems in combination with the dry, free-draining site ensure that the golf course is playable year-round. The layout has a nice variety of holes including lengthy par 5s, tricky par 3s, and par 4s that offer birdie opportunities. Elmwood Golf Club also offers an expansive driving range with both indoor and outdoor bays.

Good Value for money

I am a 17 Handicap and I found this course very open where I hit a lot of fairways. The greens had recently been cored when I played so not the best of conditions to putt on. There is a bit of walking between some of the holes but it is well sign posted to prevent you getting lost. Staff were very friendly and it was well worth the £15 I paid for the round.

Enjoyable round

Great value for the money. Course is nice and open and well payed out however there is a couple of holes there is a bit of a walk between the holes. Greens were a bit slow however looked as if they had not long been recored so will likely be playing very well soon. Lots of Par and Birdie opportunities however also a few holes that will challenge the best of golfers.

Really well kept course

As you'd expect for somewhere that's training greenkeepers of the future, the course was in very good condition. A ball on a fairway = a perfect lie. Greens were slowish, but consistent and true. I brought 4 Aussies who were donating their kidneys so they could be fleeced at places like Kingsbarn & Muirfield. They paid less for this round than the fish and chips after the round. Back 9 slightly more'shaped' than front 9, but course will mature nicely.
Oh, and I shot 7 under my handicap so naturally I loved it!

Good value for money pleasant course

A reasonable course not that difficult as there is little or no rough. We had to play on 14 winter greens but still enjoyed our round. A 2 ball we were round in 3 hours. This is golf how it should be played. My wife is off 27 & I’m off 11.
We had an excellent lunch after our round & staff were very welcoming & friendly.

Unfortunately Winter Greens

Golf in February always brings a degree of playing on winter greens. With the recent snow/rain the underfoot conditions were muddy. There was only one actual green all the rest on winter greens. The weather was cold but the area looked superb. Layout a bit confusing. Clubhouse very good and food reasonably priced. Must try it in the summer. Enjoyable.

good greens

A fine well maintained parkland golf course in scenic surroundings. The greens I especially thought were in great condition, true and not too fast, and a good read was often well rewarded! Fairways are generous, but some were a bit heavy underfoot due to the incessant late summer rain.

Very nice course

Enjoyed our round at Elmwood. Course in good condition but greens had recently been spiked so not the best time to judge quality. Varied holes and layout kept things interesting. Lovely clubhouse with good food. Will come back again.

Winter greens

Played this course yesterday and had to play at least 10/11 holes with winter greens due to on-going work. Had we known this pre booking we would not have played.

Good condition but the rough

Only complaint about the course was the rough. It's a lost ball scenario in most cases. This affects pace of play and not sure that rough is supposed to be such a harsh penalty especially if not far off the fairway. Rest of course in good nick when we played though

Fair test of golf.

Very friendly, helpful staff. Fair test of golf. Most holes appear fairly straightforward from the tee however the long rye grass and narrow second means finding the fairway is essential for a respectable score. True greens and in very good condition, will definitely play again.
