Scoonie Golf Club
Given its seaside location overlooking picturesque farmland to the north and the Forth Estuary to the south, golfers would expect Scoonie Golf Club to be a traditional links layout but it is actually a parkland course. The stunning views of the surrounding countryside contrast nicely with the views of the sea. Long hitters might be disappointed since the golf course is quite short at 5,494 yards with the longest hole only reaching to 430 yards. It is a tight layout that is tough but fair. Accuracy is a necessity since players can find themselves facing a handful of problems from going even just a little wide. The club proudly boasts well manicured fairways and greens that are maintained to the highest standard. It is because of the excellent conditions that Scoonie Golf Club has garnered quite a following.

Avoid being fleeced at other clubs in area!
Proper old fashioned club. It's a Muni, but one of the oldest clubs in the country, designed by James Braid, and great for holiday golf. I got around in 2.5 hours! Friendly staff, good pint in the clubhouse. When I first started coming to Scotland it was possible to play Turnberry, Crail, Elie, even St Andrews for a reasonable amount, They're now sticking a fork in working golfers, chasing the tourist dollar - a lot of the time the money isn't staying in the area. Support the local reasonably-priced clubs, like Scoonie, shun the ones that charge £100+ per round. They'll soon bring their prices back down!
Played today staff so helpful and friendly. Food great. Course was in a very brilliant condition and each hole had a different aspect to each fairway and green. Greens were in an excellent condition and felt very ‘linksy’
Well worth a day out
the couse has a good layout
played the course for first time and found it intersting mostly flat only thing was there was nosigns to point to each gree n but overall good
I turned up at Scoonie Golf Club. Only to be greeted by the most arrogant man I have ever met. The head professional at this golf club is bringing down the experience of playing a delightful course.
On a more positive note. Course was good condition for time of year and nice layout. With good views of the water.
However I refuse to go back due to the service in the pro shop. As well as bare shelfs.
Club house was friendly and inviting with great staff. All credit to the caterers and the green keeping staff.
Major improvements needed in the pro shop.
Lovely course with a good balance of scoring chances and tough tests. All the greens are an excellent condition, there are a few sneaky bunkers to catch you out along the way.
Had a lovely game of golf at Scoonie but didn't start off very well as no-one had confirmed our booking to the pro shop starter.I had to go and prove my conformation email to him and he wasn't happy at all which may me feel a bit uneasy.
Better communication between teeofftimes and golf courses is needed here.
Good value for money
This is an enjoyable course to play, took less than 3 hours to play 18holes. Challenging elevated green (?13th)
Clubhouse facilities could be extended as no food available, but staff welcoming.
