Rating 0.0

A flat course with trees as hazards, accuracy is a must with many bunkers and the wind coming off the Forth often being a factor.

Excellent parkland golf course with magnificent views across Firth of Forth to Fife. Not a typical links course as although many holes are long and bare there are a number which are bordered by the neighbouring wood adding to the challenge.

Rather Bland

The course is fine for a knockabout if you are in the area with a few hours to spare but the holes don’t have much definition and the course in general was rather bland although it was in reasonable condition.

Good value

The course is in good condition and some lovely views from some of the tee boxes.
Only 2 buggies and some bunkers without rakes but sand ok
