10 reviews of Burntisland Golf House Club
Our society played Burntisland in late October and the course wasn't in the best condition. There was a lot of water and mud about and the course was very soggy in a lot of places.
There are some great views across the Forth of Forth to Edinburgh and the Lothians and some very nice holes. The course is extremely quirky with a couple of holes, notably the 10th and 17th being two of the most unusual holes I've seen on any golf course.
It's a reasonably short course, but I would imagine in the middle of the summer the greens would very difficult to putt on. A lot of bunkers about and the sand was very dark and compacted making it difficult to do anything other than just pop the ball out .
I would like to return on a nice summers day and see the course at it's best.
A nice friendly club with excellent food. Very reasonably priced and not often you can have a full day out with breakfast and dinner for less than £30.
We , a group of Dutch and German golfers played this course on our annual golftrip. It came to be the greatest surprise on our trip. Magnificent views, great golfholes, good fairways and greens despite the rain in the previous days make this a small gem. As it is included in the First in Fife pass courses it also has an outstanding value for money bonus. Pro and staff being very welcoming this is a great course to play. Next time we go to Schotland it will probably be another region , but if we ever do get in the Fife region we will certainly play Burntisland again.
As an ex-member of the club I have to recommend it to everyone.
The course can vary greatly in difficulty depending on weather (particularly wind). Parts are very exposed and almost links like. 1 real par 5 on yellow tees, but 2 or 3 very interesting par 3's. There are 2 or 3 blind tee shots where it is worth having a go (15th is a drivable par 4).
The views across the river Forth to Edinburgh are amazing.
Played Burntisland on Sunday 3rd June as the last round of a 5 course trip in the area. Used First in Fife tickets (5 rounds for £95 supplements included). Thought this was the best we played as the greens were fast and true, plenty of interesting holes annd the views from the higher parts of the course were amazing. On top of this the Pro was friendly and helpful, and the food and refreshments were great. Has to be said its a course that needs playing again as there are one or two blind holes, something I will definitely be doing next time I am up in Fife
I played this course very recently in a trip to Scotland, playing several courses, and this turned out to be a great surprise.
It may look timid at 5950 yards off the back tees, but there are some fantastic holes round this course. Notables are the 7th, a wonderful uphill short par 4 with a severely sloping green, the 10th, a severely downhill par 4, the 17th, a terrific short par 3 - if you miss the green left, you are in a deep bunker, and right is like an abyss.
The course definitely needs to be played once before you know where you are going and how to play the course as there are some blind holes.
Playing off a 2 handicap, I found the course very challenging, and managed to shoot a 3 under 67 in my second round.
The pro was very welcoming and accomodating with the food being excellent.
Basically if you are in the area, PLAY THIS COURSE, it is worth the money!
i have played once i thought it was good i got a couple of pars but i am only a junior non-member at the club
was there recently on a golf outing and was impressed with the course.the holes are varied in style,really well kept and the views over the moray firth are spectacular,the clubhouse has all the facilities you need for a visiting party including a well stocked pro shop,i think we will be back for sure.

Excellent day out for those travelling from the Central Belt (of \r\nScotland that is). Elie has the usual landscape of a links course\r\nbut if you catch it on a good day, the scenery just after the turn\r\nis awesome. Our tee shots on the tenth were greeted with hoots of \r\nderision from the group of sunbathing seals just off the beach.\r\n\r\nRound off your day with a fish supper from the chippie in Pittenweem\r\nand you have the recipe for the perfect day's golf.
My favourite course in Scotland.\r\nThe first course I played in Scotland and I always play it when I'm\r\nin Scotland. The course is quite easy in good weather and a monster\r\nin wind and rain and you have to play in both conditions or you have\r\nnot played at all. The little town, the kindly people and the nice \r\nathmosphere have made me to a scotsmen.\r\nThank You ELIE !\r\n
