9 reviews of Golf House Club
From the last feedback we were wondering what kind of reception we would receive but all our party were impressed by the welcome given to us. We were showed where we could sit in the clubhouse and were brought tea or coffee and told to let the kitchen know what time we were teeing off so they could get our soup ans sandwiches ready for when we finished our round. The starter was very friendly, letting all our group look through the periscope over the course and out to Bass rock before giving us the low down on the course. A course guide will come in very handy for yardages and a few of the blind tee shots.
All our party were very impressed with the course, the greens were superb and the variety of shots you had to play made you think your way round. Everyone said that given the choice they would definately play this course again. The soup and sandwiches were lovely after our round and we were never sneared at by any of the members or any staff in the clubhouse. Well worth a visit, a true hidden gem.
A really nice course in great condition with interesting holes and awe inspirring views over the Firth of Forth. The periscope in the starters hut is a nice gimic and the starter himself was a gent. However the whole experience was overshadowed by the cool, bordering on hostile, reception from the staff and members who flatly refused to allow us to even enter the bar. My lasting impression will be overpriced, unfriendly and never to be visited again.
This is a true gem and is a must play if you're in Fife and the U-Boat periscope in the starters hut is a must. The 1st is a cracking par 4 where you drive over a massive hillock. The 3rd is one of the best par 3's you'll ever play. There are so many good holes on this course and barely an average one. Most of the holes are great fun with some wonderfully shaped greens and the condition of the course is excellant and the views are stunning on nearly every hole and especially around the turn. The 9 hole course is a great way to warm up and is kept in very good condition aswell.
What a great surprise. We played Elie GHC on a Sunday in April 2003 and it is fantastic, after the first hole it is a wonderful golfing experience. I am a pro, my wife is a 10 handicap and our third was a 16 and we all enjoyed the course. It was in the best condition of the 10 courses we played, and outside of Prestwick, the most fun! Lots of challenging shots, try to play twice in one day. Clubhouse reception is a bit too cool but then again we may have been mistaken for Americans. Don't miss this 400 year old course with no Name!
Another marvelous links course perhaps easier to navigate than some, despite the the challenge at no 1. The charming town, the firth and the beach,remnants of old farm walls, excellent greens and the famous periscope combine to yield an exhilarating round of golf.
No trip to "the Kingdom" is complete without a round at Elie. The periscope at the first tee, the townspeople strolling on Sunday afternoon, the beautiful sea vistas - it is all here. Come early. You will want a second round.
A great course. Played it on a calm day in the middle of summer, but was still extremely testing. A bit pricy for my liking when uyou compare it to Leven.
I also recommend to stay at the Golf Hotel, very reasonable price.
Practice facilities are great as well. All in all, well worth it.
We played 9 courses in Fife in 9 days and this course was in my top 2. You play through a quaint little town and almost always within site of the sea. Despite the fact that there are only 2 par 3 and no par 5 holes, the layout is far from boring. There are par fours you can hit with an iron (with the wind) and par fours you can't hit with 2 drivers (into the wind). Great golf course - I will definitely return.
A member arranged for my mate and I to have an early tee-time, and we were the first on the course. It was a chilly morning in November, with a howling wind. In spite of taking advantage of an offer by the starter to look through the periscope that he uses to ensure the first hole is clear, I still managed to embarassingly drive out of bounds, and floundered all the way through the first two holes. After that, I steadied and began to enjoy the course more and more - especially when playing alongside the sea, where there is a stunning par 3 that takes your breath away. The conditioning was excellent, and this is a course that has never been closed!
A course I would strongly recommend.
