Leven Links GC


Located 20 minutes from the Olde Course at St. Andrews is Leven Links Golf Club. The history is rich, staking claim as the 11th-oldest golf club in the world.

The course is challenging - enough to be a qualifying course for the British Open. It plays longer than 6,400 yards from the championship tees with the longest hole, the par-5 sixth, at 567 yards. Visitors are welcome any time other than Saturdays.

The club expanded to 18 holes in 1868 and retained its layout until 1909 when part of the grounds were taken over by a football and bowling ground. The course is still historic.

The last hole, "Home Green," remains intact, despite a new green that replaced the old, small square one. The green is still fronted by "Sconnie Burn." It's one of the finest classic finishing holes in Fife.

There are three sets of tees here, with 700 yards separating the back from front. The front is much longer, however, at 3,400 yards compared to 3,000 yards.

Holes 12 and 13 are back-to-back par 5s, both reachable at less than 500 yards. The front, while longer, is only a par 35 compared to a 36 on the back side.
