Ladybank Golf Club was originally formed in 1879 in the town of Cupar in the Kingdom of Fife. The club started out originally as just six holes.
Ladybank is a heathland course that plays a par-71 and is set amongst heather, pines and silver birch. Playing 6,754 yards, it's one of the longest in the area and also requires accuracy of the tee and a soft touch on small, firm greens.
The course is routed with two loops of nine holes. The front side starts off with a 370-yard par 4 which is a fairly average test for the course. The second is the first of two 545-yard par 5s on the side, but is considerably easier than the seventh, which is the most difficult hole in terms of stroke index. The drive on the third and ninth requires extreme accuracy and favors the regular player of the course due to the small landing zone.
The back side plays a little longer at slightly more than 3,300 yards, but is only a par 35, compared to the par 36 on the front. This nine is considered the more difficult of the two to break par.
Each par 4 is 390 yards or longer and the 18th is a 410-yard par 4. Greens on both nines are relatively small and heavily guarded with bunkers, lush grass and mounding.
Visitors are welcome at certain times on during the weekdays and not at all on weekends. Many PGA pros have stopped by Ladywood while in Fife for the British Open, including Justin Leonard, Bernhard Langer, Jack Nicklaus and the late Payne Stewart.
