Dumbarnie Links: The largest area of pristine duneland in Fife, home to the Dumbarnie Links Nature Reserve, is now home to the Kingdom's newest golf offering. The course is designed to join the likes of the Old Course and Kingsbarns on the bucket list of every well-heeled visiting golfer to Fife. The green fee is quite a bit higher than the Old Course, but thankfully well short of the eye-watering sum now demanded by Kingsbarns.
This incredible piece of duneland terrain boasts a mile and a half of sea frontage, offering panoramic views over the Firth of Forth from most holes. The layout's dual elevations, connected by a flowing escarpment, provided the opportunity to create a number of elevated tees, from which you play directly towards the expansive Firth.
Adding to the unabashed enjoyment of the layout, a number of tees and greens are in close proximity to the shoreline and Dumbarnie's sandy beach. The design incorporates three potentially driveable par-4s and several holes that will engender "risk-reward" course management.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Proof of handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
Dumbarnie Links is located on the 5,000-acre Balcarres Estate, owned by Lord Balniel. On the estate, Balcarres House is a mansion house built in 1595, with its buildings and formal gardens preserved as being of special historic interest. The development of a golf course on such pristine duneland was unquestionably rare, representing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for course designer Clive Clark.
