Carnegie Country Trail
Golfers visiting Fife naturally gravitate towards the eastern side of the Kingdom where the iconic names and the great links courses have beckoned for generations.
But the other side of the county has much to offer the visitor too. The Glenrothes Golf Club on the west side of the New Town offers a test challenging enough for any level of player. The course is set in a commanding position in mature parkland above the town. It was built in 1967 and provides the ideal holiday combination of good and affordable golf.
The Dunnikier Park Golf Club to the north side of Kirkcaldy is one of Fife’s most picturesque parkland courses. Built in 1963 its gently undulating fairways have provided a memorable test for top players at both local and regional level. The club is proud of its reputation for the warmth of its welcome to visitors.
Perhaps better known as Pitfirrane, the venerable Dunfermline Golf Club is set in the grounds of the magnificent Pitfirrane House, the home of the Halkett family since the 15th century. The club was founded in 1887 and has a rich history including several moves before reaching its present location in 1953.
If we are pedantic the Montgomery Course at the Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort is not actually in Fife but just over the county line into neighbouring Kinross. But for visitors to the west of Fife this is a golf course that simply has to be added to the itinerary. This is the senior of the two courses here and the perfect last stop for the Carnegie Country Trail.
