Rating 0.0

Glenrothes Golf Club in Fife offers a challenging 18-hole golf course in a parkland setting. Built in 1967, it's a par-71, 6,406-yard course that occupies a prominent position on the high ground west of Glenrothes. The views from the course are memorable, with tree-lined fairways and glimpses of the Lomond Hills to the north and the Firth of Forth and the Lothians to the south.

The golf course itself is challenging, particularly the back nine, which features a burn that crosses four fairways. Long hitters will enjoy the wide fairways, while those with a good short game will appreciate Glenrothes Golf Club's well-maintained greens.

The course features four par 3s and three par 5s. And while the front nine features the two most extreme holes - No. 3, named "Wester Gales," a 149-yard par 3, and No. 7, Lomond Loan, a 564-yard monstrous par 5 - it's the aforementioned back nine that really taxes. The hole names alone should scare the average golfer - from No. 11, Satan's Gateway, to No. 18, Hell's End, Glenrothes sounds more like a haunted amusement park than a golf course.

There is amusement to be had, of course, and not just on the greens. Glenrothes Golf Club boasts several after-round options, including the Main Lounge, which is the heart of the clubhouse. It's a spacious room with a tasteful decor and comfortable seating. It even has its own dance floor and pool table. There's also a small lounge, which seats 20, and a bar, open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily (until midnight on Friday and Saturday). Full catering services are available in the clubhouse.

Good layout.

Course is in great condition apart from the greens. Very sandy and lots of bare patches they actually rolled ok which is testament to the work done on them. If they could solve whatever issue they have with the greens it would be a great course. Saying that it still represent very good value for money.

Glenrothes open

Played Glenrothes open, £17 entry very good value for money.
Course in very good condition, not issues with fairways and rough cut to a fair length.
Greens smooth but not the fastest, however very tree.
Front night is fairly flat with the back nine slightly more undulating. Front nine is well tree lined on most holes and more open on the backnight.
Would play again.

A bit shabby

Very hilly back nine completely different from the front nine. OK but in need of some attention not as good as Dunnikeir and Scoonie
