The Burtisland Golf House Club was founded more than 200 years ago and is the third oldest in the Kingdom of Fife and the ninth-oldest in the world. Only 10 clubs in the world were established before 1800 and the Golf Club House is one of them.
The course was originally designed by Willie Park Jr. and re-designed by James Braid at the turn of the 20th century. The parkland-style course plays slightly less than 6,000 yards and is a par 69 or 70 for ladies and seniors.
The Firth of Forth is visible, but doesn't jut right up to the course. The view across the estuary to Edinburgh is stunning and is just one of the reasons the course is one of the most popular in the area.
The front nine plays a par 34 from the back tees. Each of the first three holes is a different par, setting up the course for great variety. The first hole is a short, 298-yard par 4. From there the No. 2 hole is the longest hole at the Golf Club House and is the only par-5 hole on the course. Hole Nos. 7-9 are all exciting, short par 4s that allow the opportunity to score well.
The back nine has no par 5s but is longer than the front side, due mostly to the fact there are eight par 4s and just one par 3. The two nines are starkly contrasted that way, with the front side having a par 5, three par 3s and five par 4s. The 17th, called "The Bottle" is a short, tricky par 3 at 118 yards. From there the 18th is another short par 4.
