Burntisland Golf House Club

Golf has been played at Burntisland since 1797 – historians suggest 1688! Burntisland is officially recognised as the 10th oldest club in the world. First surveyed by Old Tom Morris, the Dodhead parkland layout of 1896 was designed by Willie Park Jnr, twice Open champion, and updated by James Braid in 1922. Although not long, its generous fairways, lush grass and links type greens offer the visitor many different challenges and tests of shotmaking to score well – and fun too for golfers of all abilities! Overlooking the historic holiday town of Burntisland, the views over the Firth of Forth and towards the famous Forth Bridges are truly stunning. Edinburgh Castle is visible from the aesthetic 8th hole.

Come and enjoy Dodhead and the Willie Park experience – his only course in Fife – you will be glad you did
