Rating 0.0

It's not often you play a nine hole golf course with a backdrop of an ancient royal palace. You will find it in Falkland, though, home to the Falkland Palace and its neighbor, the Falkland Golf Club.

Falkland Golf Club opened in 1975. It's a short but tough test, set in lush farmland. It features an undulating parkland layout with a myriad of challenges.

No. 1 is nicknamed "The Stream," because there's a stream a few feet in front of the tee. If you are an extremely short hitter, this is a hazard. No. 5 is the first par 3, 207 yards, nicknamed "The Barn." The length is doable, but you're often shooting into the wind, making hitting the green in one shot harder.

No. 6 is another par 3, this time 152 yards. Drive wisely, though, as the green is protected by a couple of deep and difficult bunkers. No. 9 ends with more length, this time a 329-yard par 4. That stream from No. 1 is back, except further down, causing you to think about pulling out the iron. You also have to avoid out of bounds on the left and the right.

Falkland Golf Club features men and women's locker rooms. It also has a clubhouse with its own licensed bar, which can provide catering for pre-arranged groups.

Small 9 course set in rural Fife

Very basic course, no practice nets, putting green or range.
Small clubhouse with the main facilities you need, although looking a bit tired.
Staff very friendly and welcoming
Layout of course is very tight, one shared fairway, between 2 holes.
My impression was they did well to squeeze in 9 holes.
On one hole , you play over the football pitch, so I don't know what happens when the football is on!
I may go back as it is very good value

We were pleased to add Falkland G C to our list of 9 Hole courses. The layout is compact and completed round in just over an hour. The course being in the shadow of Falkland Hill and with views of the Palace added to the experience.

Not the best in the area

Played this for the first time but won't be in a hurry to return. The course is fairly tight and a little uninteresting. The biggest surprise was the quality of the fairways and greens which were not in very good condition to say it was the peak of the summer. People were very friendly and welcoming.

A great alternative to playing the overpriced [and over rated] home of golf.

3rd time I've visited, course in excellent condition, greens were especially good on day of visit drying out very fast, but straight and true. Green staff were very courteous and helpful, can't comment on clubhouse facilities as we were pushed for time, but all in all a very pleasant visit and can thoroughly recommend as an alternative to the madness 'up the road' known as 'The Home Of Golf!'
