Ladybank Golf Club, Scotland


Ladybank Golf Club, Fife, Scotland.*By DG Scotland Editor, Kevin Markham.*
Dating back to 1879 (and Old Tom Morris), this attractive heathland course races through a landscape drenched in gorse, heather, pine and silver birch. It is bursting with colour and the abundance of red squirrels adds to the beauty – they’re the club mascot.
>Even the drive in is wonderful, that long avenue of trees setting the tone and offering glimpses of golfers and fairways.
The sandy soil promises tight turf, gentle undulations to fairways and fast firm greens. Combined with some deep bunkering it is little surprise that golfers wax lyrical about its links-like traits.

The links resemblances end there, however, for this is a course where the trees call for caution and the narrow fairways reward accuracy. There is barely a straight hole and seeing as only four par fours scrape beyond 400 yards, beating the doglegs and subtle curves is your number one priority… your driver must be used with caution. Enjoy the peacefulness that Ladybank offers. It is enchanting.
*Did you know? Ladybank was an Open Championship final qualifying venue in 1978, 1984, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010.*
