Where2Golf says: 

Lundin Golf Club: Located to the east of Leven Links Golf Course, and separated from it by a small stream at Mile Dyke, Lundin Golf Club possesses more undulation and a more varied layout than its neighbour. The first four holes spectacularly hug the impressive line of dunes found closest to the seashore. Wonderfully elevated tee-boxes on these early holes offer spectacular views onto the Firth of Forth and across to the Lothian coast on the other side. At the far end of the course the short and fiercely bunkered par-3 5th rubs shoulders with another short, fiercely bunkered par-3 5th, its twin on the Leven Links golf course. For the remaining front-nine holes and most of the back-nine you'll experience a classic links layout, complete with occasional water ditches, excellent bunkering and firm, fast greens. Part of the back-nine however makes a brief diversion into a more parkland style environment, starting with the uphill par-3 12th. The immensely scenic (as far as views are concerned) and partly tree-lined par-5 13th takes you along an elevated ridge perched above a steep grassy bank. A spectacular plunge awaits at the good-length par-3 14th, which connects you to the wonderful four-hole closing stretch which runs straight through the centre of the course amidst classic links golf terrain.

Did you know?

The history of Lundin GC is inextricably linked to its neighbour, Leven Links. The Leven course originally comprised 9-holes, which were extended to 18 in 1868 by adding 9 holes to the east of Mile Dyke (a small stream). The new course now connected the towns of Leven and Lundin Links. With the Leven players starting at the western end of the course and Lundin players at the eastern end, and with golf growing in popularity through the 1890s, the inevitable result was a heavily congested course. In 1907 the decision was taken to create two separate 18-hole courses. The original 9-holes that lay west of Mile Dyke were extended inland to create the 18-hole Leven course. The easterly nine was also extended inland, forming today's Lundin links.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
