Founded in 1890, Anstruther Golf Club is one of the Fife's historic links courses. Originally a seven hole layout, two more holes were added in 1916. Like most Scottish courses, each hole is named and the course's "Magazine" hole is dubbed such due to the fact one of the huts sitting beside the hole housed magazines of ammunition for soldiers during World War II.
The course stretches along the shoreline between the towns of Pittenweem and Anstruther and the coastal views are spectacular and the elements come in full force off the shore.
The nine holes play slightly more than 2,200 yards and is a par 31. The longest hole is the "Chain Road" hole third, playing 400 yards. Five of the nine holes on the course are par 3s, including the 230-yard finishing hole.
Holes No. 5-7 are par 3s and two play long. No. 5 is 198 yards and No. 7 plays 230 yards. The forward tees at Anstruther don't have much an advantage, playing more than 2,100 yards as well. Most tees are only 10 to 15 yards ahead of the back tees.
Facilities at the club include a pro shop, changing rooms, bar and catering facilities. The town of Anstruther is about nine miles from St. Andrews. Greens fees run between 16 and 18 pounds for nine holes.
